Hahahahaha. I hope all you PiS voting fools working in hard physical jobs remember the words of Morawiecki when dragging your broken and beaten carcasses off to another hard shift. Remember, it's "not a hard commitment" to let you retire earlier. ;)
And, just for kicks : the Ministry of Finance this year (so far) has increased the level of the Polish national debt by 20 billion. In just over 6 weeks.
