    I saw some of this debate. A lot of meaningless repetition from the Ks and I saw a picture posted that appeared to show both Kicillof and Maxi fast asleep!

    you get your debtors to give you $100 dollars up front,
    and for every dollar you give them,
    they give you one dollar back,

    rgs' bill anticipates non-performance on the new issuance.



    It's default when you lack liquidity.

    It's stealing when you choose not to pay.
