The President of the Republic complained about the criticism for the end of the benefit and said that workers should charge those who closed the trade
The president Jair Bolsonaro suggests that the population covers the emergency aid of those responsible for what he calls “the politics of staying at home and the economy we will see later”. In a conversation with supporters on Friday, 11, he recalled that the benefit implies indebtedness and that both mayors and governors can also compromise accounts to guarantee payment. Bolsonaro said that with the fiscal ‘mismatch’ comes what he called “rampant inflation”, and the citizen pays the bill. “Which country in South America has adopted emergency aid? We put R $ 600 for five months and R $ 300 for four months and when it ends, they beat me up. Snake who decided to stay at home, closed trade and ended his job. Copper from the governors, the governors can give emergency aid, they can also get into debt because the government is getting into debt, even when it will last. ”
The Vice President of the Republic, general Hamilton Mourão, defends the government to find ways to guarantee the payment of a new round of benefit, even if the decision is viewed negatively by investors. According to him, Brazil ‘cannot be a slave to the market’. Mourão believes that in three or four months the country will be able to start a process of consistent immunization, which will help in the recovery of the economy and in the creation of jobs. “We cannot be a slave to the market. So you have to understand the following, we have about 40 million Brazilians who are in a very difficult situation. So the president is obliged to decide some way to help these people, if he says he is not going to help, he will take a stick. If you say it will help, you will also take a stick. I think he will take the best solution. ”
Mourão recalls that, although the proposal is being prepared by the economic team, the final decision on the source of funding for emergency assistance will be up to the National Congress. According to the general, there are only two options: opening another extraordinary credit, which will increase public indebtedness; or take money from other areas. The expectation is that the government will hit the hammer in relation to the new round of emergency aid right after Carnival. So far, the idea is to propose the payment of another three or four installments in the amount of R $ 250 for informal workers. This time, beneficiaries of the Family Grant they should not be entitled to aid.
