    Obviously, the SUPER Super-Minister is not all THAT super after all! Balancing of the account of spending less + saving more is proving to be a Trapeze-Act [an “ACT”]:

    Sure, PG is not a super-minister, but probably the most competent Brazil has had in recent history....the problem is the shitty Congress, that simply will not bow to what Brazil needs, putting their personal interests above everything else.
    That was expected, right from the start.

    True! The same shitty congress [+ the rest of the crooks] was elected by the same masses who get screwed year after year and yet refuse to learn!

    The fact is, Congress only approves what serves its members' personal interests....any project presented in the attempt to combat imoral priviliges, corruption, is not only disfigured but defeated, then they try to get measures passed that pardon past crimes and allow them to keep on stealing.
    Viva Brasiu-siu-siu !

    - Too many “THINGS” you actually meant, I guess
    - Acir Gurgacz's Vacation: a tiny tip of a Gigantic Iceberg
    - Revoked authorization: Till the dust settles?
