UCR does not support delegation of powers, privatization, control or money laundering

The national senator and president of the Radical Civic Union (UCR), Martín Lousteau, detailed this Thursday that his party will not support in Congress “the delegation of powers” from the Legislative Branch to the Executive, the abolition of the retirement formula, the increasing “restriction of added value and regional economy”, the “privatization” of public companies, and the implementation of a “money laundering scandal,” all the initiatives stated in the bill “Base and Starting Points for the Freedom of Argentines”.

“The delegation of powers means that the President, in many matters, does not have to go through Congress and do it himself. He asks to be able to decide to be alone in any aspect of our daily lives. “Clearly not that,said Lousteau in a dialogue on Radio Con vos when listing the first of the five elements of the bill that will not negotiate with radicalism.

For the head of the UCR, “the issue of retirees” is another critical point because “the minimum retirement has lost 50% since 2017,” so “retirees cannot be a commitment to adjustment.”

“They have lost an unusually high capacity for survival. If your retirement is $105 thousand, even if they pay you a bonus and it’s $160 thousand, go rent. Not to mention the rest of my life. “Medicines go crazy, he said, adding that “if the President intends that, through no formula, the retirees are the adjustment variable, the answer is no.”

As a third limitation, Lousteau marks “constraints on added value and regional economies,” something that “explains a lot how difficult it is for a regional SME to export.”

“It is not the same as a large producer of a commodity,” he added.

He then criticized the “privatization” of public companies and requested that, “in any case,” President Javier Milei send to Congress “one by one” each proposal with a “privatization mode.”

“I believe that the best way, in the case of large companies, is to

be listed on the stock market. Like YPF at the beginning. This means that they have to show more balance sheets and that you can compare to other companies, explained and asked, explaining that the privatizations were “introduced by decree” and that they cause “firmness and legal weakness.”

As the fifth point, he mentioned “scandalous laundering,” where they “wash up to less than 100 thousand dollars at a zero” percentage rate.

“While many sectors are asked for an adjustment, those who do not pay taxes are given the possibility of laundering,” he said.

On the other hand, Lousteau maintained that if the ruling party ” wants to get something that will serve as an instrument to strengthen the economy, all I have to do is sit down and negotiate.”

For the head of the UCR, the initiative of the Executive affects “all areas of life,” and he considers that “there are voters in Milei who do not realize that when things come out as they are in the law, they have a very forceful effect. on them.”.

“Let’s concentrate on what is unclear. That should solve the deficit, we all agree. Let’s do it fairly. We can’t reduce the retirements and pensions of the misery of our elderly, and on the other hand, we allow money laundering scandals,” he said.

When asked about Milei’s criticism of radicalism leaders, Lousteau accused him of passing “too much time on Twitter and not enough time in reality.”

“Otherwise, he would not celebrate the 25% inflation. He does not cover the daily expenses from his pocket. Otherwise, he would realize what it is. Even if he travels with Aerolíneas Argentinas or if he pays his ministers at barbecues, “I think I should spend more time in reality and less on Twitter,” he said.
