A defesa de Dilma Rousseff no processo de investigação do TCU que atestou as pedaladas nas finanças públicas é um desastre.
Ela se resume a alegar que “todo mundo faz”, repetindo a desculpa básica inventada por Lula à época do mensalão.
Dizer que “Todo mundo faz” não exime culpa. Não conserta o Brasil. É, no mínimo, estagnação.
E, no máximo, absoluta incompetência para gerir um país, além de óbvia falta de vergonha.na cara.
Dilma Rousseff’s defense in the TCU investigation about her fiscal crimes against public finances is a disaster.
It only goes to allege that “everyone does it”, repeating the basic excuse invented by Lula at the time of the “mensalao” (big monthly allowance paid to congressmen in exchange for votes).
To say that “everyone does it” does not exempt one from guilt. It does not fix Brazil. It is, to say the least, stagnation.
And, to say the most, it is absolute incompetence to manage a country, not to mention the obvious shamelessness.
*The TCU (Tribunal de Contas da União) is the Brazilian equivalent to the U.S. GAO (General Accounting Office).
