As he is unable to hide his disappointment because he knows that he is no longer a TV panelist and accepts the most basic rules of political negotiations, President Javier Milei cannot hide his anger from Israel after the failure to treat the “Law Bus.”. He continued his campaign slogan against “caste”—despite famous efforts to help him from the so-called friendly opposition—and targeted especially the governors,” who, in his original vision of the world, would conspire to prevent him from “solving” problems”—”structural structures in Argentina.”
Far from paying attention to the teachings of deputy Miguel Pichetto, who in the middle of the session advised the ruling party to have “some flexibility” so as not to “continue to lose,” the head of state said from his account of the X network against the so-called “political sectors that resist making the changes needed in the country.” He added in a defiant tone that “they must explain to society why” and assured that “we will continue our program, with or without the support of the political leadership that destroyed our country,” a scattered group for libertarians.
“Caste is against the change that we Argentines voted for in the polls,” Milei began on her X account. “We know that it is not easyto change a system where politicians get rich at the expense of the Argentines they raised. to work every day. Our government program was voted by 56% of Argentines, and we are not ready to negotiate this with those who destroy the country,” he launched before bravado about the explanations he believes the opposition should give and not the executive he leads. “Long live freedom, damn it!!!” he closed as if still campaigning.
LA CASTA CONTRA EL PUEBLO
La casta se puso en contra del cambio que los argentinos votamos en las urnas.
Sabemos que no va a ser fácil cambiar un sistema donde los políticos se hicieron ricos a costa de los argentinos que se levantan todos los días a trabajar.

Similarly, in a statement from the “office of the president” (sic), they indicated that “they will not allow those who have benefited for many years from a corrupt and impoverishing system to fail the future of all Argentines.” “The governors decided to destroy the article on the ‘Grounds and Points for the Freedom of Law of the Argentines’, hours after agreeing to include it,” they kicked. “They decided to abandon the Argentines to protect their interests and prevent the national government from having the tools to solve Argentina’s structural problems,” they added. Without identifying the recipients, but in secret allusion to the less obedient sectors of the Together for Change, they reprimanded them for “coming to their positions and benches, raising the flags of change (sic), to betray their voters today.” “We will not continue to argue with those who demand to maintain their privileges while 63% of children in Argentina do not eat. The law will be debated when they understand that the people need it, not the government,” the statement concluded.
The Minister of the Interior, Guillermo Francos, who has become a libertarian despite his experience of almost four decades in different political positions, is the only official reference deigned to analyze with a minimum of coldness the resounding legislative failure of the government, which in fact. unites Freedom Advances and the PRO. “We decided to send the project to the commissions again because we saw the lack of will of the blocs to go along with the proposed reforms. The most important delegated power, which allowed the economy to be deregulated, was rejected. In this way, the development of the treatment of the Bases Law is meaningless because its essence is lost,” he explained.
Franco spoke of “voting commitments that have not been fulfilled in practice.” “Those who support the project in general did not continue their vote during the treatment in particular,” he said, despite the fact that the majority of support was against. “We will not talk about tax matters. We will continue to manage the elements we have, and the governors will do the same. The treatment of a tax reform is subject to the approval of the law, he said, closing the doors of dialogue, and he did not stop victimizing himself: “There is an intention to block the action of the government; see which sectors voted with the Union for the Homeland to obstruct,” he said, even despite the apparent efforts of a large part of the opposition to support them. And as is the norm today in the libertarian microworld, Francos estimated the vote as if it only included the election of the president and not the legislators and governor. “Politics does not echo what the Argentine people voted for. The society voted for a change, but the leadership did not confirm it. “That is the great dispute,” he concluded.
The head of the libertarian bloc, Oscar Zago, also blamed the opposition for the failure. “If three hours ago you promised to come along and now you don’t, the problem is yours, not mine,” was his original exculpatory argument. The project “returned to the committee because there were deputies who promised to go along through the governors and did not comply,” he said. “We will not be flexible, and we will continue with the program we have,” assured Zago, adding that “we do not feel betrayed, but we think they are wrong,” in reference to the collaboration blocs. Immune to reality, Zago is excited that the return of the law to the committee “is not a step backwards, but a return to the committee to continue to deal with it,” and he even hopes that “they will give time for this to be taken care of during extraordinary sessions.”
