The prime minister was visiting a health center in the Evosmos neighborhood. The pensioner approached him and complained about his low pension. “How can I pay taxes and the ENFIA?” he asked.

“The pensions were cut during the New Democracy administration. From you I didn’t get anything, only 5 euros,” said the pensioner to Tsipras, meaning the 5-euro fee for visiting a public hospital that the current government abolished.

“You are the prime minister. I voted and I am complaining to you,” the pensioner added, according to greekreporter.

“This needs to be said,” Tsipras answered. “We found the country in a very bad state and they shake the finger at us.”
