After the decision of the Central Bank to prohibit the financing in installments with credit cards of trips and services abroad, the main leaders of the opposition dedicated strong criticism to the economic policy of the Government through social networks.
Mario Negri, president of the Juntos por el Cambio interblock in the Chamber of Deputies, charged against the Government for the monetary authority’s stocks of tourism. “He prohibits everything that cannot be resolved. Now Argentines will have to pay a fee for their tickets abroad or seek usurious financing. They returned to exterminate any habit of the middle class “, sentenced the radical deputy.
For her part, the president of the Pro, Patricia Bullrich. He pointed out against President Alberto Fernández for the prohibition of the purchase in quota of trips abroad with credit cards.
“President: I have to go shopping, will you give me permission? Because in Argentina you decide from the price of meat on weekends to the ticket fees. Let’s see: govern! Argentina has 45 million of free beings, not slaves of their stupid decisions! “, transmitted, with an ironic tone, the former Minister of Security through her Twitter account.
For his part, the deputy elected by the City of Buenos Aires, Javier Milei, also joined in the criticism of the Government’s economic policy and, according to his interpretation, this decision “what is showing is the lack of dollars from the Central Bank “.
The economist was forceful when analyzing the decision of the monetary authority and stressed that “basically it is a devaluation without touching the exchange rate. ”
Alfredo Cornejo, senator elected by Mendoza and head of the National Committee of the UCR, said that this ban by the Central is “another way to lock ourselves in and liquidate the economy“.
“They locked us up like crazy and badly with the excuse of the pandemic. Now they prohibit paying in installments for trips abroad, another way to lock ourselves up and liquidate the economy. Wasn’t it better to implement a more sensible economy leaving ideology aside? “, expressed the still national deputy through his Twitter account.
The elected deputy José Luis Espert also had no mercy with the Government when analyzing the measure. “As always, the initial stocks, leads to more and more stocks … and more and more stocks until everything explodes. But we like to try again and again with things that only fail. We are sick,” concluded the economist.
The macrista deputy Silvia Lospennato it also rejected the Central Bank’s decision. “They are not going to let us or visit our loved ones who emigrated,” he said.
Radical senator Luis Naidenoff said that the ban on buying tickets and accommodation abroad in installments and with a credit card is “one more measure that marks the clear disorientation and lack of direction from the government. “” The consequences are obvious: punishment of the middle sectors, “he added.
The deputy elected by the city of Buenos Aires Martín Tetaz was another of the leaders who questioned the monetary authority. “By hand. The BCRA’s face was being filled with fingers in the travel account for delaying the real exchange rate. It was more devaluation or more stocks. They went for more stocks“, said the economist.
The national deputy Fernando Iglesias stressed that “with the prohibition of paying air tickets in installments, the Government ends the electoral period.” “Now, to pay the Platita Plan, comrades! “, he added wryly.
Cristian Ritondo, head of the Pro in Deputies bloc, also gave his opinion on the issue. “How easy to prohibit people from taking out installment tickets when others travel in luxury aircraft“He said. The reference has to do with the government’s decision to rent Lionel Messi’s private plane for an official trip to Mexico.
The president of the Civic Coalition, Maximiliano Ferraro, accused the Government of following “restricting freedoms and punishing the middle class. ”
“Closure of the Palomar, a brake on low-cost, stranded abandoned … Now they are tightening the stocks and only those sectors with greater purchasing power that do not need to finance their tickets will be able to travel abroad,” concluded Ferraro.
