With exposes on “pork” in the proposed P3.7-trillion budget for 2019 now coming out left and right, it may be time for new Ombudsman Samuel Martires to step into the picture.
Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said this Tuesday as he thanked an unlikely ally for revealing that a single contractor hogged no less 30 flood control projects worth billions of pesos.
Lacson said both the House of Representatives and the Office of the Ombudsman can conduct their own probes into the revelations.
“Expose pa more! A single contractor bagging 30 flood control projects worth billions of pesos calls for a congressional inquiry/Ombudsman investigation. Thank God I found an unlikely ‘ally’ in Cong. Andaya,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.
Mga nakikinabang lang sa pork barrel ang magiging masaya at mataba sa pagpasok ng taong 2019, na tinaguriang Year of the Pig.
Ito ang nilalaman ng mensahe ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa kanyang Twitter account, matapos unang ibunyag na umaabot na sa P71,000 ang utang ng bawa’t Pinoy.
“2019: Year of the Earth Pig. Brace yourselves for more pork,” saad ni Lacson sa kanyang Twitter post.
The coming year may be a happy one only for those who continue to benefit from the pork barrel system – and a burdensome one for the rest of the Filipinos.
Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said every Filipino, even those born just now, is already saddled with a whopping P71,000 debt, no thanks largely to the corrupt pork barrel system.
“2019: Year of the Earth Pig. Brace yourselves for more pork,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.
