Santo Domingo.- Deputies from the various political parties on Tuesday rejected the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) suggestion that the Government raise the light bill as the only solution to that problem.

Ruling PLD party deputy Ramón Cabrera said a higher light bill at present would cause a considerable fall in the population’s purchasing power, whereas his opposition PRD party colleague, Hugo Núñez, called it “inconceivable” to levy more taxes on the population through energy sector.

Pro-government PRSC party deputy Maximo Castro said the Government should take the measures needed to deal with the energy crisis but without affecting the poorest sectors.

On Monday the IMF Mission) concluded its consultation to Dominican Republic, warning the electricity sector continues to drag a large deficit.

Sometimes, I think the IMF is out of touch with reality.

Many times I know that government is out of touch with the people.

Those who steal electricity hope government won't touch them.

"Those who steal electricity hope government won't touch them."


Stop the "Free Lunch" or "Yo No Pago" mentality, implement a land tax, eliminate many of the tax exemptions that currently go to the wealthy and well connected, increase the effective tax to the average in Latin America, 22% of GDP and implement a real progressive system of taxation in the DR.

Invest the 22% of GDP in:

* K-12 education (over 10 years double the % of GDP to 8% of GDP) and merit based University studies with two year tech schools serving those unqualified for 4 year institutions.

* Infrastructure. Roads, ports, railroads, bridges, energy, etc.

* Basic Health Program. Promote abortion on demand, eating healthy to stay healthy, ...


If YOU truly want and desire modernity and development, then YOU have to PAY the price.

No PAIN, No GAIN.

To the assorted imbeciles that don't know it:

The only reason that the DR has not collapsed is that the IMF has lent them billions to stay afloat.

Typical that you would want to bite the hand that feeds you.

How can you tax something that is rationed ? In Constanza they cut the power from 9 to 5 and if it rains no power for several days. Ever wonder what happens to peoples food when the refrigerator is off for several days ? I cringe what the 8 hours everyday does. Why doesn't the country use wind energy in these ares ? Surrounded by mountains and steady breeze no one would even notice them

Juanbullshit .......

That is the biggest Haitian lie ever !!!

There was more done in Dominicana in 30 years of Trujillo,

with Dominican labor and money,

with the external debt paid in full,

than has been done in the last 50 years,

in debt and with Haitian labor.


Freaking Haitian lie and fallacy !!

"De vital importancia para los expertos es reducir las pérdidas por robo y por deficiencias en las redes, las cuales rondan el 40%, muy por encima del promedio de América Latina."


Electrical theft and other deficiencies account for 40% of the losses in the sector.


Stop stealing it and start paying your fair share.
