Queiroga will not recommend vetoing the project that ends with a tax role

Even in the face of the ANS (National Supplementary Health Agency) appeal, the Ministry of Health will not recommend the veto of the bill that ends the tax role, approved this Monday (29) in the Senate.

The government was against approving the text —as was the ANS—, but fears electoral erosion. The assessment is that the approval had great popular appeal and that the veto would have a high political cost for President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), who is seeking reelection.

Behind the scenes, Palácio do Planalto intended to hold off the analysis of the text for the maximum period – which is 15 working days -, but the first lady, Michelle Bolsonaro, has been pressured by entities and family members of people with rare diseases.

The Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga, denied the Sheet that there is political wear and tear on the account and stated that “the veto is an exceptional measure”.

“The veto is an exceptional measure, although it is up to the National Congress to prepare the laws. In principle, the Ministry of Health will not recommend the veto. The powers are independent and harmonious and, whenever possible, the prerogatives of the National Congress are preserved”, said this Tuesday (30).

Amid the fear of political attrition around the president, health plan operators are working to overturn at least part of the text.

The president of ANS, Paulo Rebello, told the Sheet who will suggest to the Planalto Palace a total veto of the bill.
