The candidate for national deputy Ricardo Lopez Murphy and the national deputy for the Frente de Todos Fernanda vallejos placeholder image they had a tense debate. The legislator reproached him for the passage of the economist through the government of Fernando de la Rúa while the former minister blamed the Government of Alberto Fernández for the deaths that occurred during the coronavirus pandemic due to the delay in the purchase of vaccines.
In the program Two voices, for TNVallejos affirmed that “the recipes defended by López Murphy are the same as those proposed when he was minister of the Alliance and lasted 15 days in office”. “Argentine society rejects them deeply; For the same reason that he threw him out in 15 days, he threw out the Macri government in 2019 and now Peronism is ruling again, “he added.
“We have to go back to the things that did work, what we did between 2013 and 2015. They want to come to us to average the years when they governed, that things are bad, with the years that we govern when things are going well,” he boasted the economist of Kirchnerism.
Asked about the increase in the dollar, the legislator asserted that “under the objective conditions of the economy There’s no reasons to think that there could be a situation of instability, the exchange front is well managed “.
In this regard, he pointed out that “every time Peronism governs when an election arrives, these catastrophe forecasts and no world falls. “He even pointed out that” the exchange catastrophe that was predicted during 2014 and 2015 “occurred with the administration of Mauricio Macri” when he applied all these recipes that Ricardo surely shares. “
“No country in the world has this dollar festival“, Retructed, for his part, López Murphy, who warned about a” looting of the productive sectors. “
“That’s why companies are leaving and nobody thinks of investing and creating jobs in Argentina. We are doing very badly, we have an inflation of 50% in retail prices and 65% in wholesale prices, this government has placed the largest public debt that has been placed in history: 30 billion dollars ”, indicated the economist.
Vallejos replied: “There is no more looting than the one that occurred with Macri. Imagine if we had entered the pandemic with those 90 billion dollars that they happily eloped during the Macri government ”.

In a heated debate, López Murphy emphasized that the country is “Stalled for 15 years”. And Vallejos sentenced: “That is totally false. If you deny the statistics and invent a kind of science fiction that accommodates your debate, it cannot be argued. I respect their ideas, but we cannot deny reality or lie ”.
“We have to ask ourselves how the Gross Product Per Capita fell during the four years that Mauricio Macri governed or the recipes that López Murphy now comes to defend again, which are the same that he proposed when he was Minister of the Alliance and lasted 15 days in office. ”He reproached.
Faced with this statement, López Murphy clarified that he is not taking charge of a government in which he did not participate. “Now it is a broader front that tries to put a stop to the internal and external policies that have led the country to this situation,” he said.
Later, the analyst pointed out that “Argentina has become impoverished” and pointed out that “no country in the world” has the same dollar system as Argentina, with the exception of Venezuela and Cuba. “
“We are not Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua or any of those sister countries to which so much is stigmatized. We are a country very different from any of those economies. For a myriad of reasons, comparison with those countries is impossible and, furthermore, I find it unpleasant to speak pejoratively of other countries that have their problems and have to solve them, as we must solve ours, “Vallejos answered to justify” more participation. state where applicable ”.
It was in this section that López Murphy pointed out that “Venezuela is a lake of oil and they are poorer than the poorest countries in Africa; Cuba is worse, they fiercely repressed their citizens and they can’t even produce sugar anymore; and we have also been in solidarity with one of the worst dictatorships in Latin America, which is the one in Nicaragua, with a presidential couple who have brutally persecuted their opponents and put them all in prison to win the elections.
Vallejos appealed to irony by warning that “this level of debate is good for memes on social networks “and compared López Murphy’s speech with the Vox in Spain:” It’s the same as what the right wing of Together for Change in Argentina says, “he said.
“Argentina has a diplomatic tradition of non-interference in internal affairs of other countries and of unrestricted respect for the right of self-determination of the peoples, and I am very happy that this is the case, ”he added.
To which López Murphy reproached with an interrogative tone: “I don’t do Chicanas, but when there were problems in Colombia and Chile, the President referred to the Duque and Piñera governments, Wasn’t there non-interference?”. “Opinion politically is not interference. Interference is what Mauricio Macri has done, who has sent weapons to a brother country as if to collaborate with a coup, “replied the official deputy in reference to the alleged shipment of arms to Bolivia.
Managing the pandemic
One of the points of the debate was linked to the management of the pandemic and in this regard, Vallejos highlighted the government’s massive vaccination campaign. “It is being vaccinated at full speed”, synthesized the deputy.
However, López Murphy described it as “Wrong” health policy and accused the government of carrying out “medieval quarantines.” “It was delayed in hire the best vaccines of the world, even today members of the ruling bloc criticize their own government for having made the DNU to find the best in the world. I believe that this delay has cost us tens of thousands of deaths, “he emphasized.

The economist even pointed out that the handling of the pandemic in Argentina was “worse” than in Uruguay, which has 50 percent of the population with two doses of the coronavirus vaccine. “We have to look at which country looks like us. We did much worse than them. Argentina had no need to do worse than its neighbor, it can do the same as they did in Chile and Uruguay without any difficulty,” he said.
However, for Vallejos it is “difficult” to compare the reality of these countries, since they have a wide difference in the number of inhabitants. “It seems to me little rigorous analysis and also not very rigorous to qualify which are the best vaccines, when scientific publications show that the performance is good in all, “he added.
