Senators fight over committee chairmanship

leave a comment »

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile is having a hard time distributing committee chairmanship because some senators are fighting over those powerful committees. Senators Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. and Ralph Recto, both wish to head the public services committee, which covers public services and utilities, communications, transportation, and legislative franchises. The energy committee has already been assigned to Senator Teofisto Guingona III of the Liberal Party (LP) but Senator Loren Legarda of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) said she also wants to be its chairman. The Finance Committee is also being contested by Senator Franklin Drilon and Senator Edgardo Angara.

What do you think is behind those committees which causes the fighting between our honorable senators? Are those committees juicy in financial terms or just being powerful in authority? How do we know? Senator Miriam Santiago on her interview with The Correspondents said that being a senator is very rewarding as far as finance is concern. This may be the answer…

Here’s the excerpts from the Correspondents:

ANG SARAP MAGING SENADOR NG PILIPINAS

Maganda rin naman ang naidudulot ng pagiging prangka ni Senador Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Ayon kay Santiago ,maramiang tumatak-bong Senador dahil sa laki ng budget na ibinibigay sa kanila kada buwan.

Lumalabas na P35,000 suweldo nila kada buwan ay pakitang-tao lang sa milyun-milyong budget ng bawat senador… Kada buwan ay may Fixed Monthly Budget ang bawat Senador ng humigit-kumulang P2 Milyon.

Sa opisina pa lang nila ay humigit-kumulang P500,000 ang budget nila sa Maintenance and Operating Expenses (Rental, Utilities, Supplies at Domestic Travels) at P500,000 para sa Staff at Personal expenses. Kaya para makatipid ang ibang Senador, kaunti lang ang staff na kinukuha nila Nagtataka ka pa kung bakit mayroong mga Ghost Employee?

Bukod diyan, may P760,000 allowance pa sila kada buwan para naman sa Foreign Travel. At ang masakit pa nito, hindi na kailngan i-liquidate ang mga resibo ng mga gastusin ‘yan kundi certification lang ang Requirement.

Heto pa, lahat sila ay Chairman ng mg Komite sa Senado. Ang Committee Chairman ay tumatanggap din ng budget na sinlaki ng tinatanggap ng mga Senador na humigit-kumulangP1 Milyon din! Hindi sila mawawalan ng Komite dahil 24 lang ang ating mga Senador at 37 naman ang Committee sa Senado.

There’s food for everybody ‘ika nga! Lumalabas na doble ang kanilang benepesiyo at kita kapag sila ay nabiyayaan ng Committee Chairmanship.

Sa P200 milyon na Budget para sa Pork Barrel ng mga Senador bawat taon, awtomatikong may 10% na S.O.P. o kita ng Senador na P20 milyon. Ito ang porsiyento na ibinibigay ng mga kontratista sa mga Senador na nagbibigay sa kanila ng mga Infrastructure at Livelihood Project.

Bago matapos ang termino ng isang Senador, kumita na siya ng P100 milyon sa Pork Barrel pa lang. Yung ibang Senador mas gahaman, hindi lang 10% kundi 20 – 30% ang komisyon hinihingi sa mga kontratista.

Pansinin niyo na lang ang pagbabago ng buhay ng ilan sa ating mga Senador simula nang manungkulan sa puwesto. Kung dati ay simple lang ang kanilang pamumuhay ngayon ay nakatira na sila sa mga eksklusibong subdivision, maraming bahay sa Pilipinas at abroad at mahigit lima angsasakyan.

Ngayon nagtataka ka pa ba kung bakit gumagastos ng daan-daang milyong piso ang mga Senador sa kampanya para sa isang posisyon na P35,000 lang ang suweldo kada buwan? Bawing-bawi pala ang gastos kapag naupo na!

ANG SARAP MAGING SENADOR! ! !

One of the reasons why the Philippines will never, ever get off the ground…… ayon….. . kaya talagang mahihirapan umasenso ang bansang Pilipinas – yung mismong gobierno nila ninanakawan ang kanilang kapuwa taong pilipino at hindi pa iyan….. hindi pa sila nagbabayad ng buwis sa bansa – kaya lahat ng kalyehon lubak-lubak at masyadong madumi at mababaho!!!

Hindi na sila nahiya sa kanilang nakikita…. eh kasalanan naman nila yoon – dapat sa kanila pumunta lahat ng mahihirap…

..we should be thankful to miriam defensor santiago for being fair and honest about this – for exposing these people – that is what the country needs – whistleblowers – if there are no whistleblowers the country will never ever prosper and will just sit in the sidelines watching with envy the prosperity of the other southeast asian countries

-look at Vietnam now, much better…… .while the rest of the new breed of filipinas are just maids –
the present level of education has also deteriorated in that country – whether it be ateneo, up, la salle – they could not compete anymore – they do not know how to use their education to better up their poor country, they prefer to steal not to assist in the path of prosperity for their country – they lack human factor and social conscience and no social responsibility.

…the result of a poor level of education.

so wake up, you filipinos paying your taxes there, stop defending your corrupt masters and do something!!! !!

we all feel so sorry for you….

THIS IS TO LET THE WHOLE COUNTRY KNOW THAT ELECTION IS MORE OF PUTTING AMBITIOUS PEOPLE IN POSITION WHO ARE GREEDY IN POWER, WEALTH & PRESTIGE THAN OF PUBLIC SERVICE… ANG MASAKIT PA PERA NG BAYAN PARIN GAGAMITIN SA ELEKSYON MALUKLOK LANG SILA SA PWESTO!!!

Ikaw Pinoy, ano ang masasabi mo?
