The squabbling in Congress over the grant of emergency powers to President Aquino ostensibly so he can resolve a much-ballyhooed power shortage in 2015 is a false debate, inasmuch that it misses the mark on the real emergency that now confronts our collective future.

A fare increase in Metro Manila’s railway system is inevitable. No less than President Aquino had long been pitching for higher fares at the Light Rail Transit and Metro Rail Transit systems, arguing that the government wanted to reduce its subsidy for the trains’ operations so that the money could be used for other social services. The President claimed it was unfair for the entire country to help finance the operating cost of the railway system that benefits only residents of Metro Manila.
