Budget Law

- the management roadmap - and the

Hydrocarbons Promotion Law.

While legislators' chats burn, few dare to make statements or tweets.

"We are at the security limit. If that point is passed it is war and nobody wants that," official voices from both chambers coincide, asking for prudence.

The scene is like that of the children who, in the midst of their parents' marital crisis, must choose who to live with.

"Do not put us in the middle, if we all know where we are going: to lose like dogs,"

complains a pro-government senator.

Some with a direct line to the President had come to speak.

"I want to express my full support for President Alberto Fernández, whom I consider the only leader who can guarantee the balance in the government coalition and lead the country towards reconstruction," tweeted Edgardo Kueider from Entre Ríos, one of the many provinces governed by the ruling party that fell into the hands of Together for Change at the polls.

Sergio "Oso" Leavy from Salta and Carlos "Camau" Espínola from Corrientes also went to bank the President.

Fernanda Vallejos

"If you are part of a space where you think all those things, what are you doing there? I wouldn't stay for two minutes.

You can't say in private what you can't hold publicly,

"They are wrong in reading that it is from Cristina. If so, would it have been left out of the lists?", Add others.

In the upper house, where the ruling party runs the

, the senators who respond to governors carry messages of discontent and many already imagine a second stage of the campaign more focused on a

La Pampa is one of the provinces that the FdT believes it can turn around.

"We lost, we have to go out and recover votes and we cannot because this exploded publicly. We are

wasting time

Sergio Massa, president of the Chamber of Deputies - the third leg of the coalition - remains


as he is seen leaving or entering Congress, the Ministry of Economy, and the Ministry of Transportation and they insisted that "he works for unity."
