P87-M BUDGET FOR PNOY TRIPS SUSPICIOUS!
These are excerpts from a post I ran into in www.trigger.ph
The P87 million budget declared by Malacanang for the
trips ofd Pnoy could be very well more than the actual cost. UK
Malacanang did not give any breakdown of the P87 million.
The eight Cabinet secretaries with Pnoy have their own travel budgets and allowances. Like Pnoy, they also brought along members of their staff, who likewise are entitled to allowances.
The Philippine embassy in the country of destination also gets a separate budget from the Department of Foreign Affairs.
The trips lasted only for a week or seven days. If you divide P87 million by seven days, that’s almost P12,450,000 a day. Question: was everybody in the entourage really needed by their bosses?
Now, let me add my thoughts, guys:
Pnoy’s boys, in particular the ones who prepared and approved the P87- million budget, had better have a literally SOLID JUSTIFICATION for why should these trips be so EXTRAVAGANT.
Since the P87 million is the people’s money, Malacanang and the Cabinet members in the trips must present a DETAILED BREAKDOWN of their expenditures and supporting documents ASAP (as soon as possible).
Until then, we taxpayers have NO GUARANTEE that the money was JUDICIOUSLY AND LEGALLY SPENT, that there was NO OVERPRICING of anything and no funds went into anybody’s pockets.
Somebody must also prove that the companies they had tapped for the trips, like airlines and accommodations, had indeed offered the most reasonable and cheapest rates.
And not just because these were owned by government officials or cronies of Pnoy and the Aquinos or Cojuangcos.
Pnoy has been boasting that his government has been wisely and prudently handling funds since he assumed office. Therefore, it shouldn’t be a problem for any of his boys to prove that ther had been no anomalies for the
US abnd trips, if HE’S TELLING THE
Keep in mind, guys, P87 million is P87 million.
But you wanna know what’s DESPICABLE and INSULTING people, especially to the poor and the sick?
The government doesn’t mind spending P87 million for a week’s travel of Pnoy.
But two years into his administration, among others: the education sector is still SHORT OF TENS OF THOUSANDS of classrooms and books, land reform is some 900,000 hectares short of the expected accomplishment to date and HUNGER is worsening.
To the architects or engineers, landowners and food merchants:
How many classrooms can be built or how many textbooks can be bought for P87 million? How many scholarships can that amount fund? How many hectares of land can be bough for distribution to poor farmers, how many food generating projects can be started with P87 million?
Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

Villar disappointed a lot of people big time! He made a fatal error; his political career whatever is left of it, is now gone. His wife's political ambitions will never take off as a result of his guilty verdict on CJ Corona!
The fallout of the trial will haunt them.
No doubt. It's obvious that the judgment against the chief justice was politically orchestrated, biased and discriminated...he was singled out for obvious reasons and everybody knows about it. C'mon people, wake up and smell the garbage looming in the air in our country. We can't blame others if we're being discriminated, because it's how other people look at us as a nation.

Suspicions and very serious doubts on
conviction will never go away. It will be remembered for the ruthlessness, viciousness
and super abuse of power by Abnoy. Corona
Try watching The Conspirator and read Grisham's The Appeal. You'll find some similarities in the plots of the true-to life movie and the novel with
's ouster... sometimes, life is indeed
stranger than fiction. Corona

Sabi nga ni Madam Miriam, yung impeachment is a quasi-political thing. Kung ang evidence lang ang pinagbabatayan dun, it wouldn't have turned out that way. Syempre kinu-consider din nila yung political careers, kuno, nila. Let's face it.
WHY SHOULD WE STILLMTRUST PNOY?
Hell, no. Never trusted him to begin with. 30
