    “Levy is working out of an office at the presidential palace on plans to increase fiscal revenues that include a mix of tax increases and the elimination of tax breaks, [under the ever watchful eye of DumbAss herself] the official said.

    Nothing like creating a new law to allow you to disobey another...typical PT manouevre....which in the next elections - if the fat B lasts that long - will be denied.

    As to getting Joaquim Levy to take over the Finance Ministry immediately, it's the best thing the fat B has done so far....can't wait to see the back end of that loser Mantega....
    On the other hand, I hope Levy increases taxes, which will f*ck the lower classes...they made their f*ckin' bed, now lie in it !
