How Much Philippine Politicians Get

"In the Duterte budget, members of the House majority approved for themselves a P100 million bonanza each, and a P750 million bounty for each of the 22 deputy speakers whose posts Duterte ally Alan Peter Cayetano and his accomplices created to reward those who led the campaign to elect him Speaker.

But the same House majority also approved Mr. Duterte’s cuts in the proposed budget of the Department of Education by some P21 billion, as well as P16.6 billion from that proposed by the Department of Health.

Charged with implementing the free tertiary education program, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) budget was also cut by P11.7 billion.

If the national budget is any indication of regime priorities, as proposed by Mr. Duterte and as approved by the House, the message it is sending is that further enriching the alleged representatives of the people is first.

As Senator Panfilo Lacson pointed out, those worthies will get at least P100 million each in pork barrel funds that they may use for whatever purpose.

The same budget is also saying that Mr. Duterte now has over P2 billion more (for a total of over P4 billion) to do with as he pleases since intelligence and confidential funds are not subject to COA (Commission on Audit) oversight.

The same budget is also declaring that despite the perennial shortfall in classrooms and teachers in the public school system, the education of the country’s young is of little or no concern at all to both Mr. Duterte and the ladies and gentlemen of the House of ill-repute.

It is also announcing, for the information of the entire country and the world, that they couldn’t care less about enhancing and maintaining the health surveillance and vaccination system, despite the surge in the number of dengue and measles cases and the return of poliomyelitis to the country after more than 30 years.

The latter health issues, as almost everyone knows by now were partly created by the partisans of the Duterte regime’s politicization of the Dengvaxia issue in 2017 by whipping up mass hysteria over the supposed dangers of vaccinations.

That campaign was led by a non-doctor with the connivance of certain government and media personalities.

Like their patrons, that sorry band was completely indifferent to the consequences of what they were doing as long as they could heap blame on the administration prior to that of Mr. Duterte’s.

That episode only helps validate the conclusion that ONLY GREED, RATHER THAN PUBLIC INTEREST, citizen well-being, health or even safety, is what drives the dynasties, their collaborators and their agents who have monopolized political power for decades." (all caps mine, for emphasis)
