Alberto Fernández has started the application for his pension as ex-president: seven million pesos. I’m not kidding. The worst president we’ve had since we recovered our democracy, will get seven million pesos each month. What a nerve! Does he think he deserves that obscene sum of money after his lousy administration? Argentina is in ruins, a wasteland, thanks to decades of Kirchnerism. Why on earth should Fernández get such a “prize”? Absolutely unmerited, unjustified, unfair. With the average monthly pension Argentina’s retirees get nowadays, they cannot survive, literally. Not enough for rent, medicines, daily expenses, services, food. But neither Alberto nor Cristina Fernández de Kirchner seem to care, since they are not willing to give up those privileges. The naked and painful truth.
