    The top photo shows what an enormous contradiction Dilma and the PT are. While they profess to support and defend the workers, and here “workers” should mean everyone who works and pays taxes, not just those of the lower social classes, she rides in all pomp in a Rolls Royce. Why didn't she appear standing in the back of Mujica's old VW “Beetle”, with the roof cut off ??
