Kirchner deputy Fernanda Vallejos, who days ago generated controversy with her proposal for the State to keep the actions of the companies that provide economic assistance for the coronavirus, published this Wednesday a suggestive tweet in which she mentioned an anecdote from the former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
“The other day I was telling you about Roosevelt’s anecdote with the unionists who were demanding labor claims at a meeting. In the end, Roosevelt gets up and says: ‘Okay. I agree with those measures. Now go outside and make me take them‘”Vallejos wrote.
And he closed: “The important thing is you. Not how Peronists do we self-perceive the leaders. Because Peronism is the one that beats in the chest of the working people. If, as leaders, we are able to interpret them, we are going to do Peronism. And in politics ‘by their works you will know them’ “.
Last weekend, the legislator of Unidad Ciudadana had proposed by the same way that the State have “equity participation” in the companies it assists with subsidies for the pandemic.
“If the State decides to subsidize large groups, it would be reasonable, as the most developed economies have done before and are doing now, to do so not as a gift to these companies, but in exchange for a stake in the companies’ capital“he said.
The economist’s project caused the rejection of several leaders of the opposition and the Industrial Union; while the Minister of Labor, Claudio Moroni, described it as “interesting”.
At the Casa Rosada and in the Olivos residence, however, until now they have not taken up the idea of Vallejos, a leader who answers directly to Cristina Kirchner.
