The current government of Alejandro Garcia Padilla is trying to sign a bill to replace the IVU by VAT of 16%. The opposite political party organized a march through Ricky Rosello.

There are many people in favor and other against this new tax. Personally I think there are other ways to raise that money although they are not politically correct.
