The President is living life as a rich monarch

/ 12:14 AM February 04, 2016

So President Aquino found time to meet with Miss Universe, but he can’t find the time to meet with the still-suffering and struggling survivors of Supertyphoon “Yolanda”?

President Aquino can spend long hours to visit Europe and go to nice places abroad, but can’t spend a few hours to see how the rehabilitation work is proceeding in calamity-stricken areas?


President Aquino can host parties where he can rub elbows with powerful leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit, but he can’t assure that poor Filipinos will be provided with proper housing and school facilities?

There are thousands and thousands of Filipino families living way below the poverty line at Payatas Hills, but President Aquino would rather live the life of a rich king instead of living the life of a public servant which he is supposed to be.


What a shame!
