After the Omnibus Law failed in the Chamber of Deputies, Javier Milei blamed the legislators who voted against the Executive project and targeted the governors directly. Consequently, there are four Cabinet officials who were targeted because they respond to the leaders.
The governors pointed out by Milei are Martín Llaryora (Córdoba), Maximiliano Pullaro (Santa Fe), Carlos Sadir (Jujuy), Rolando Figueroa (Neuquén) and Gustavo Sáenz (Salta). In Casa Rosada they maintain that “the governors pushed for the law to come out 100% as they wanted and on top of that they asked us for provincial funds; You can give them something, but not everything.”

As a first reaction, the Minister of Economy, Luis “Toto” Caputo, canceled a meeting he had with the man from Santa Fe regarding the provincial accounts. And then, versions began to appear about the possibility of asking a group of officials to resign.
The negative vote of the people of Córdoba was taken personally by the ruling party, since it gave two places in the Nation to three men from former governor Juan Schiaretti and Llaryora. These are Franco Mogetta in Transportation, Daniel Tilliard in Banco Nación and Osvaldo Giordano in ANSES. The name of Flavia Royón, Secretary of Mining, close to the governor of Salta, also emerged.
Osvaldo Giordano and the impact of his wife's vote
As TN learned, at the top of the Government they are especially looking at the case of the head of ANSES and seriously analyzing displacing Giordano because his wife, deputy Alejandra Torres, voted against the Omnibus Law and was one of those targeted by the president. “He's going to have to explain why he did it,” said an official.
“It causes me a lot of pain that at this point in history we continue to think that because we are a 'woman of' we cannot have our own opinion and criteria,” was the response that Torres gave on her official account on the social network that Giordano should be “immediately fired as a traitor.”
In that sense, the legislator from Hacemos Coalión Federal also analyzed what happened on the premises, stating that the ruling party's bill “had an extension and complexity that merited a methodology to work on it calmly, with dialogue, with agreements , with rationality, but that was never present.” She stated this in statements to Radio Miter Córdoba, where she also said that “I did not believe that they thought that I was going to make decisions based on the mandate that Osvaldo occupies.”
