After her return to Argentina after being in Cuba, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner performed in the city of La Plata for the first time after the PASO and analyzed the work of Mauricio Macri and officialism after the victory of Frente de Todos. Now, following the “Sinceramente” presentation tour, the vice-president’s candidate will travel to different provinces of the country, in an event that will have political campaign dyes for October 27. This afternoon, he arrived in Posadas, capital of Misiones.
“It must have been God who brought me to Missions today. I am very happy to be in this town of workers”, Cristina began her speech in Posadas, recalling the tragedy of the tornado of San Pedro, which occurred 10 years ago, and then give the step to her book and the present day the country. Regarding the exchange rate run, Cristina recalled the 2008 crisis in the United States. “Lula was telling me that we had to try not to make people afraid of the crisis. In Argentina, in the people, the crisis of 2008 was not felt. Some told me that I should have let the crisis feel, but the task of a ruler is not to make people suffer, it is to prevent it.” We had five exchange rate runs and the last one was in 2015. You have to work hard and be very strong. The 125 was a self-inflicted crisis, which, coupled with the outside, we could have made excuses, but people don’t vote presidents to blame someone else, people vote president to solve the problems,” he added.

“It makes me very bad that every 10 or 15 years Argentina repeats cyclical crises. In 2001 many people had no hope and to put a different country and I think the most important of the 12 and a half years that Nestor started proves that with difficulties, with problems, there can be a different country model.” I think that returning to neoliberal policies, or I don’t know that, because we have to see what happened in these four years, nothing like it ever happened… Nestor paid the IMF after 47 years, there was constant indebtedness and renegotiation. At the time it was 10 billion. Now it’s $57 billion. The problem is where the money is, because the silver came in, and who’s going to have to pay.”
“Vaca Muerta is a fantastic opportunity,” he said of the momentum of multinational companies and the exploitation of the country. “This former president, after recovering YPF, signed the contract with Chevron. You want to make outsiders believe we’re against multinationals? I was the one who signed the contract.” What we Argentinians don’t want is to make us pay international prices to what’s produced here. Rather than investing national capital, they came to invest from the outside. No more myths and scaring, and above all, no more lies, that’s what I ask.”” Where I see the most dangerous fall is in health and in food. The lack of vaccines, lack of proper diet, worries me strongly. We had developed very important policies to help HIV sufferers.”
“It seems to me that they see people as part of a set, I think there is no compromise. How could they convince workers, professionals, SMEs that fees had to be increased? Have you ever heard the billionaires say they had to pay more? No, that’s called installing things in people’s heads and ourselves with prejudices of repeating.” People are afraid of losing their jobs and those who have already lost it are very desperate. If I had to define management, it would have to be like chaos where things that I thought we would not be going to live again have been lost.” Dujovne said companies had a debt of one-third of their capital and families devoted only 5% of their income to paying the doubt. That was the country we had left in 2015″”I am distressed to see the country like this, it was a lot of effort. I stayed with that Nestor proud to have paid the fund and now I say, “What an immense sorrow what happened to us and is happening to us.” You have to work and not put your arms down.” It’s going to take a lot of effort.As Alberto says: “We’re going to meet our debts but we’re not going to make the Argentinian people suffer.” It’s going to require a new order and a new social contract, because when you have more, the more responsibility you have.”” Just as politicians tell us that the higher we are, the more responsibilities you have, economic actors have to understand that they are the ones that have the most commitment. Everyone, with intelligence, capacity, we’re going to build a new order.” In this note:
