Gov't hopes 'opposition won't reject 2012's budget'
Economy Ministerl candidate Amado Boudou stated that the Government expects "to deal with a more serious opposition this year that won’t leave the country without a budget again,” while meeting with businessmen affected by volcanic ash spewed by Chile’s Puyehue volcano.
12 days before the Government is due to send the 2012 budget bill to the Lower House, Boudou hoped that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s administration "will be able to have the 2012 budget approved and that the opposition doesn’t try to block it."
“It was very sad, in a political way, seeing the opposition using all kinds of obstacles that ended up with Argentina not having a Budget for the first time in its history, ” Boudou added, while visiting Bariloche in Rio Negro province, where he met with local businessmen and shop owners and analyzed the economic and social impact the eruption of Puyehue volcano had over the city.
“Despite the opposition’s caucus stance on the budget, the President was able to take all the necessary measures to have year without unexpected changes, ” Boudou said.
