Nothing fairer than these two powers discuss the subject ", clarified the parliamentary, which earlier this month proposed debate in the House explaining that the new bus fare is abusive, It serves only the interests of entrepreneurs, not having been discussed with society, having no transparency and no supervision.

In Small Hours of the fourth, parliamentary presented an audio June last year, when the mayor of Manaus, Arthur Neto, He said it would not reset the bus fare to R $ 3,54, who had just been authorized by law. "It's to say it would be a bold and dishonest and that could even be arrested, but that was not going to do this with the city's population. But the mayor lied, because this adjustment authorized in late January, and not only to R $ 3,54, as determined Justice, but to R $ 3,55, to benefit entrepreneurs ", said José Ricardo, referring to the Municipal Decree No. 3.612, from 26 January 2017, signed by the Deputy Mayor, Mar¬cos Rotta, fixing the technical fare R $ 3,55 and operational, R$ 3,30. "And that $ 0,25 more will be paid through subsidies to companies, It is public money, corresponding to the requirements of entrepreneurs ".

And to top, the governor, Jose Melo (PROS), It announced that it would suspend the application of the GST and property taxes incentives, if the passage did not return to R $ 3. José Ricardo, the decision of the governor contradicts a state law that remains in force, You need to have a decision of the Assembly on its revocation. "Besides that, the governor, before stopping, should charge the counterparts of businesses and City Hall. He never did anything. Until today, He had no accountability of these incentives and subsidies, that they are designed to keep the rate the same amount and modernize the transport system. But, in practice, what people see daily is dwindling fleet and the most damaged ", he stressed, concluding that those who lose it is the population, since these public funds could be invested in other areas too important, such as education, health, safety, Water, home.

Citando uma reportagem publicada por um veículo de comunicação, ele confirmou a sua convicção de que os recursos são mal geridos. A matéria fala da história de dois médicos, what, por conta própria, compraram um aparelho de perfurador, utilizado em cirurgias ortopédicas, e que estava em falta tanto no Pronto-Socorro João Lúcio quanto no Joãozinho, East zone. "Unfortunately, essa é a realidade de muitos hospitais. Esses médicos compraram quatro aparelhos. Cada um custou apenas R$ 200. Disseram ainda que o ideal seria ter o perfurador pneumático, que custa de R$ 4 a R$ 5 one thousand. Mesmo assim o valor é baixo, frente a tantos equipamentos de saúde que chegam a custar milhões de reais. O problema da saúde é sério, porque os recursos são mal utilizados. Precisamos investigar”.
