Panahon ni Arroyo, hinanap ko lahat ng mga congressmen at ang kanilang mga chiefs of staff. Marami sa kanila ay kamag-anak ang chief of staff nila kung hindi asawa na walang trabaho o may negosyo at sideline lang ang pagiging empleyado sa opisina ng congressman ay anak, kapatid o pinsan. Government is one big employment agency for politicians' relatives. Hanep talaga.
Kamakailan, nagkaroon ng away sina Lacierda at Juana Change dahil sa dalawang ABAD sa gobyerno ni Aquino, si Butch Abad na budget secretary at ang kaniyang anak na si Julie Abad na PMS boss at siyang may hawak sa pork barrel ni Noynoy Aquino.
Nakalimutan nila na mayroon pang dalawang Abad, ang asawa ni Butch na si Henedina Abad na balitang magiging vice-chair ng appropriations committee ng House of Representatives at ang chief of staff naman niya, ang isa pa niyang anak.
Paliwanag naman ng mga Abads (balanced news aka balitang tinitimbang) bago ako sumabad. (it rhymes, Virginia).
Abad said all three appointees were practically casuals who may be removed anytime just for loss of confidence by their principals.The Daughter
“The only real power is the representative, but she owes that to her constituents and is accountable to them,” Abad said.
Julia defended her family. “For now, I think ourHis father must be jack of all trades that he was appointed Agriculture Secretary and then DepEd Secretary in the previous administration.
will have to speak for themselves. We will leave it to the public to judge us by our performance in government later on,” she said.
The justification mentioned for her appointment was because she was the chief of staff of Noynoy Aquino--when he produced only a few bills?
The Wife (thru the husband)
The budget secretary said his wife “didn’t want the province to continue to suffer.”She was urged to run in 2010 when Ms Arroyo was on her way out and no longer in a position to inflict partisan harm to the province, Abad said.
“And the people recognized her sacrifice by electing her despite massive vote-buying by her (Arroyo)-backed opponent,” he said.
O ayan prinesent ko rin ang kanilang sides. For Juana Change to chacha, it takes two to dance.
Paano yan wala pa rin aking nakikitang change. Government is still the biggest employer of kamag-anak, kabarkada, kaklase, inc.
Sa akin naman ang sayaw ko maski pops. Walang particular number ng nagsasayaw. Hige, sayaw bata.
