    Trying to do what HAS to be done, in THIS country, is like flogging a dead horse....If the reform is not passed in 2018, the next president will have to deal with this year's projected deficit of R$ 300 billion, and an even bigger one in 2019....and we have the radical leftwing parties (PT, PC do B, PSOL), the communist unions (CUT, CGT), Lula's ragtag 'red' army (MST, MTST) to thank for it....wait and see, these exact same idiots, in 2019, will accuse Temer of not doing what he should have done, when the poor stop getting their retirement cheques.....typical of the lefties.. they believe in “the worse the situation”, the better for them .

    If at all they really are serious, ALL they have to do; is to ENSURE that the 2'000 or so crooks return the public wealth which they have generously been stealing for more than 20 or so years. It'll be so much more - in trillions - that the R$ 300B will look like a small change! But luckily for “them”, ALL are very LEGALLY innocent!
