In an interview with “Jornal Nacional”, the president stated that she tried to make a tax reform during her first term in the Planalto Palace. Dilma said she believes that the discussion on the topic needs to be carried out “in depth”, since the federal government has adopted some measures in recent years that, according to her, were criticized, such as the payroll exemption.
