Social and religious actors raised their criticisms on the subject yesterday, while deputies from different parties took up its defense.

Almost a dozen opposition and ruling party deputies agreed that the exemptions be eliminated, but they maintain the position that also those who benefit from all State institutions. Others were in favor of having a salary readjustment as compensation in case their exemptions are withdrawn.

The politicians love office because of all the goodies they vote themselves to receive. If the public demands they do without one or two goodies they vote in new goodies. The result is the public still continues to pay the tab for their gluttony.

Luis Is Worst President.

I find the whole situation a joke anyways. Why does an average Dominican that could never afford a luxury car car about someone not paying taxes on an import? It’s not stealing money. Stealing money would be using public funds to pay import tax. Our country would do way better if they removed or cut in half all import taxes for everything across the board.
