Governors João Doria from São Paulo, and Wilson Witzel from Rio de Janeiro (currently impeached), have been openly scheming to undermine the federal government.

As the federal government exempts the cooking gas and diesel from federal taxes, Governors take the opposite direction and increase state taxes on the same products.

At the beginning of the Chinese virus pandemic, president Bolsonaro has been harshly criticized for supporting the view that the fight against the virus should not alienate the economy. The lockdowns promoted by governors and mayors, backed by the Supreme Court, has led thousands of families to ruin. Today, Brazilians’ main battle is against hunger.

Cooking gas and diesel oil are essential items for the entire population, and end up having a great influence on inflation. Brazil is a country of continental dimensions, consequently, the price of fuel used in trucks that transport food is a matter of national interest and not just one category. Sensitive to people’s struggle to survive, the federal government has granted a federal tax exemption on many products, however several states have shamelessly increased state taxes on these same products, preventing any savings from reaching the final consumer. How pathetic.

It’s an opportunistic and cowardly gesture that reveals who is actually working against the people. It has never been about saving lives, it has always been about oppressing the population. Governors need to be reminded that the Chinese virus can’t be beat by hunger.

The states that have increased their taxes are Acre, Alagoas, Amazonas, Amapá, Espírito Santo, Goiás, Paraíba, Piauí, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Norte, Rondônia, Roraima, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Sergipe, São Paulo, Tocantins and the Federal District.
