It is a big deal with the national government begins to solve a problem the economy faces. Pres. Bush's father lost his election because he failed to recognize the looming economic crisis...clearly Bush II has learn an important lesson...
BTW...I went to the grocery store to buy stuff for salad and dessert for a family dinner tonight. While I was there I picked up some spices to bring home...not to many and a bottle of wine to go with our BBQ (asado :). $79.00 later...I am still in shock and glad I never go the grocery store in the states! I will complain just a little less about the prices when I get back to Buenos Aires.
Can't wait to see you all (not really, I was just saying that to be nice :) Enjoy the last two weeks!
