Amid much suffering, a callous gift

The gift of millions of pesos sourced from savings of the Senate and the House of Representatives to each of the two chambers’ members is an act made unconscionably callous amid the hunger and suffering of millions of poor Filipinos, most especially the typhoon victims.

It may be legal as the Commission on Audit chair said, but it stinks to high heavens when you consider that each of them already receives millions in pork barrel funds.

Ugh!
