On Philhealth corruption fiasco
Indeed, Duterte and his cronies have tested positive- positive for corruption! ₱15 billion were lost alone in the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth). In a Senate inquiry, as much as ₱154 billion were reported to be corrupted by its officials. The P15 billion could have been spent to buy 1,250,000 computers worth ₱12,500.00 for high school students or fund the schooling of 962,000 elementary students. Anyone could imagine how many PhilHealth members and beneficiaries could use the fund for their medical needs especially during this time of Covid19 pandemic. How much more would Duterte and his cronies take away from the poor?
What is extremely outrageous is how Duterte become obviously complacent or hesitant to directly sack his now-resigned military appointee.
Corruption lies to the very bones of Duterte’s government. It is imperative that his ouster becomes the public’s priority. Organize, unite and fight back! #OUSTDuterteNOW
