    This feller says that he doesn't want to oppose Kretina's administration, but he has “the same agenda as Moyano”, so why doesn't he support Moyano?

    Answer: He's after the big bucks that come from supporting Kretina!!!!!!

    LOL I thought inflation was something the president had to manage while the unions worry about job ,but seems like CFK is building jobs in the home building industry for this lazy union leaders to go on strikes and ruin everything, I am sure that this guy and moyano know how long they have to be on strike to get inflation to where they want it. It wouldn't surprise me if this guys are in the business of trading dollars in the black market, Argentina would be wise to jail and expropiate all dollars from black market traders.

    #3 Or because that “same agenda” is to represent workers, and unlike the opportunist Moyano he doesn't see driving out the most pro-worker government in his country's history (in favour of what?!) as part of that...
