Ortiz indicated that far from what is wanted to be installed, in reality this bill does not have any article on health. “This protocol in Brazil is a failure, when taxes are confiscatory, tax evasion is big business. The application of this type of protocol is a party for clandestine industries, because the legal ones are stifled by taxes and regulations”, he launched.
