I need to put this here again as the fact still astonishes me. I just do the conversion into euros for European readers.
Why does a Venezuelan "Socialist" deputy earn
5,085.06 EUR every month PLUS TEN MONTHS of bonus plus expenses for trips and other work related issues?
As you can see here Venezuela is just at place 88 in GDP according to GDP per capita.
Here the references to a well-known Venezuelan priest who found out how much our Venezuelan "heroes" pay themselves.
Tax rates in Venezuela are much lower than in Germany, costs of most things are lower as well, so Venezuelan deputies are living very well. The same is the case for most of the top politicians we have now.
Isn't it a shame in a country where there are so many poor people?
