The Buenos Aires governor stated: “Every day two or three million Buenos Aires residents go to work in the City, with what they do they contribute Gross Income, and it seems to me that if we do the math, most of the taxes of the city of Buenos Aires Aires are the product of the work of the people of Buenos Aires who go there. But how stupid the reasoning is.”
Kicillof said with strong criticism of the Buenos Aires government: “In a normal season we have ten million tourists, of which many are from the city of Buenos Aires, who go to the Atlantic Coast, to the Sierras, when did you hear me say in the Operativo Sol, I'm going to ask for your address to see if I charge you, do I serve you? The truth is that it doesn't have much logic,” in statements to Crónica.
