This commentary demonstrates with numbers and facts how wrong and cruel the proposed welfare reform is.
In this video, I talk about the dirty tricks used by the administration in trying to hurry up approval of a murderous welfare reform. I explain with numbers why there is not a so-called “welfare deficit” and propose that the administration should do its homework before attempting to screw the Brazilian population with a terrible welfare reform.
This congressman, a representative from Ceará state (Northeastern Brazil), explains that companies and banks owe almost 500 billion reais (170 billion dollars) to the Brazilian welfare/retirement system. None of the administrations, including the current one, have ever tried to make these companies pay. Now, the Temer administration has decided that the people are going to fill this huge hole, paying the bill. That is absolutely unacceptable, and the Lessa Blog agrees with him. Welfare/Retirement reform? Yes. This welfare/retirement reform? NO!
