    The author may wish to review Dilma’s history and background before he starts making recommendations to her that she split with her socialist past. Dilma is not just a “committed socialist” but an ardent Fidelista. Brazil is financing at least $1 billion in projects in Cuba while Brazil remains starved of foreign investment. Recently Dilma decided to pay for thousands of Cuban doctors to assist the healthcare needs of Brazil’s poor, at an estimated cost of $520 million and up per year and the political price of Brazilian physician guilds’ wrath. This is a step that not even Lula had dared to implement in his two mandates. The Press likes to call these Cubans “doctors” when , in fact, they are nowhere near as well trained as the average US nurse.
    Dilma is what she is, an ardent Cuban style revolutionary.
