Mauricio Macri harshly criticized the Government in his end-of-year message: “Never again poverty and abuse.”

Through his Facebook profile, former President Mauricio Macri published his end-of-year message in which harshly criticized the government and pointed out that in the course of 2020 the optimism in the administration led by Alberto Fernández left diluting.

In this sense, the referent of the opposition bloc Together for Change affirmed that “already last summer, the release of dangerous prisoners, the lack of an economic plan and the first attacks on the Judiciary they deepened the recession and raised doubts about the republican convictions of the government ”.

The former president also made harsh questions against the Government House for the handling of the pandemic of coronavirus.

“The pandemic arrived and, with it, one of the quarantines longest and most destructive in the world. We stop looking at our affections, we lock up our children insanely. Many lost their jobs, before an officialism that was dedicated to preach fear and more fear, exercise their authority, their power and criticize society for the increase in cases. And still we end up being one of the countries with the most deaths for Covid, “said the former head of state in his message to say goodbye to the year.

With respect to economy, Macri pointed out that “There is no clear course. We were once again without reserves and without energy and the taxes increase and they do not stop increasing, again at levels that do not exist in other countries, which clearly, obviously, removes the possibility that someone wants to invest and generate work for Argentines ”.

However, the former president was hopeful in the future and affirmed: “What was not lost is the conviction of the Argentines that we want to live in freedom, that the law and our rights are respected. The learning that this frustrating 2020 leaves us is that the course to resume is that of work and the truth. Never again to poverty, lies and abuse.

Macri’s full message

MY CONFIDENCE IN THE ARGENTINES IS TOTAL

Dear Argentines,

One year ends very difficult for all, in which we suffer the effects of the pandemic and quarantine, but which also closes with esperanza. Yes, I know it sounds strange, because today it is difficult to see how things can improve, but if something good left this year is the demonstration that even in the hardest moments the commitment to our values ​​is intact. We want to live in peace, with respect, with work, in freedom, without lies or abuse, and we are ready to fight for the country we love.

The year had started for many with the logical expectation before a new government. We ourselves, as opposition, offered help in the transition and we supported him in the things that we thought were worthwhile. That optimism, however, is gone diluting. Already last summer, the release of dangerous prisoners, the lack of an economic plan and the first attacks on the Judiciary they deepened the recession and cast doubt on the government’s Republican convictions.

And on rained, wet. The pandemic arrived and, with it, one of the quarantines longest and most destructive in the world. We stop looking at our affections, we lock up our children insanely. Many lost their jobs, before an officialism that was dedicated to preach fear and more fear, exercise their authority, their power and criticize society for the increase in cases. And still we end up being one of the countries with the most deaths by Covid.

All of that could have been avoided with more humility, more attention to international experience and allowing activities that in countries like Uruguay, for example, they were never, never, prohibited. This quarantine leaves us sequels that we will suffer many years. Not only for the millions of Argentines who lost their jobs but also for the consequences psychological, educational and health of other pathologies (for example cardiological, oncological, diabetic) not treated in time.

To make matters worse, when it had to be focused on the health emergency and its economic and social consequences, the Government faced an authoritarian and judicial agenda away from the problems of the Argentines. Wanted to expropriate Vicentín, sought to get rid of the judges who investigate corruption, attacked the old Post Office, when not, to chase my family and spanked him unfairly a part of its budget to the City of Buenos Aires.

In the economy does not see a clear course. We were once again without reserves and without energy and taxes increase and do not stop increasing, again at levels that do not exist in other countries, which clearly, obviously, removes the possibility that someone wants to invest and generate work for Argentines. As we know, private formal work is the only solution to our problems. For there to be upward social mobility and each Argentine family can dream of a better future we need to generate quality private work.

However, we ended the year with almost 50% poverty, millions of new unemployed and inflation on the rise. Sad, But all the efforts made by the Argentines in 2018 and 2019 were lost, years that – I recognize, of course I recognize – were very hard, but in which we were finally straightening the boat and today the boat looks like the derives.

But what was not lost – indeed, it is stronger than ever – is the conviction of Argentines that we want to live in freedom, that the law and our rights are respected. The learning that this leaves us frustrating 2020 is that the course to resume is that of work and the truth. Never again to poverty, lies and abuse. As I already told you, I am pessimistic, yes, I am pessimistic for the next few months because I believe that we will continue to suffer the consequences of the blunders of a government without plan or direction. But I am very, very optimistic for the next few years, because I see the strength and conviction of the Argentine people, stronger than ever, fighting to defend our future.

That is why I am full of hope, because my confidence in the Argentines is total. My trust in you is absolute.

We are millions of Argentines whose hearts are full of a desire to future, progress, freedom and appreciation for democracy that cannot be changed by anyone. Let’s trust that, trust us, and move forward to 2021 with the assurance that we are not alone. We are a lot. And every day more.

Happy new year and strength!
