And not for the so-called “class.” The first response came from trade union centers and organizations, which warned “that they will not take any step backward,” and that measures will be taken to confront this “blow.”

Even more seriously, it turns out that there are hidden measures in the announcement: starting from January, all subsidies will be withdrawn, including tickets for public transport, trains, subways, etc. The situation of retirees and pensioners will worsen, and pension fund funds will be used, in addition to increasing the rates of already unpaid public services.

Military dictatorship (1976-1983), and was excluded from the Ministries of Defense and Security, which he planned to control from the position of Vice President.

For his part, Jorge Macri, head of the Buenos Aires city government, said that they are preparing to serve the poor and the middle class, and “we will not die of hunger,” which is what he met with the Catholic Church and evangelicals for. The Universal Church and the Kingdom of God run a fair amount of population here, and in this case they are strongly connected to Israel.
