The red scissors are coming too

The upcoming paquetazo could be coming in more ways than one.

After the Chavernment’s Finance Minister hinted at the possibility of future tax hikes, the National Assembly is now saying it could take a look at how to reduce the large payroll of our public sector.

Funny that, during the campaign, Chavismo mocked Henrique Capriles’ pledge of not firing public employees.

In the words of The Matrix’s Morpheus: “Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.”
