    Apart from boosting spending for state universities by 500 million pesos, growing the economy by 0.5%, helping Siemens announce the intention to provide us with 6,000 jobs, releasing the dollar clamp, starting the process of paying off our international debts which was a hole dug ever deeper for him by the previous administration's refusal to comply with their contractual obligations, stopping INDEC from lying about how bad we were doing, paying the pensioners, reducing inflation, reducing the number of power cuts, announcing a US$1.4bn investment in Patagonia, allowing Argentine farmers to export an extra 60%, allowing the “Libertad” to sail to foreign ports without fear of being impounded and stopping the sell-off of Argentina to China what did Macri ever do for us? ;-)

    Indeed. :-)

    I started it in response to certain grumblings about the state of Argentina after 12 years of Kirchnerism and only 6 months of Macri, re-worded it as a result of fair feedback from Reeky, and now add to it every time there is good news... ;-)

    What can you do to but keep presenting the facts? ;-)

    ”What can you do to but keep presenting the facts? ;-)”

    Absolutely right, I keep doing that but a certain duo just won't accept the facts!

    I was a bit concerned the other day though, Reekie agreed with me and even praised me (breast feeding of babies)!

    Some of the facts of Zaph are wrong. Ill adress but one because its late and I´m sleepy. The farmers did not export 60% more, they won 60% more money, because Macri cut the taxes to the rich farmers and traslated the cost to the poor and the workers.
    Amazing achievement.
