As a mother, a wife of a responsible tax payer, and a concern person I call to the leaders of this country to---
Provide what's best to your citizens. With the taxes you collect each year. I think it is more than enough to prioritize education, shelter and jobs to your people.
This is too much. I had my fair share on how poor our governing system is.
Why can't you provide roof for school buildings, why can't you build new classrooms so children will have space to breath and room to think. Filipinos are intelligent people. All we need is proper caring and support to execute whatever we're best at.
Media tend to exaggerate things, I know. Whether you like it or not, immediate attention and proper planning is needed on your part. My heart for this country is great that if only I have the resources and capability, I would probably end up doing your job.
Be selfless. Stop thinking about your own earnings and benefits. You're seated there to guide, to provide from the share of taxes we are giving, and to be of service to the people.
And please stop pertaining to the less fortunate as the "Masses". You're only pulling them down. Masses meaning the "poor people" the helpless ones. Well, they're not, if you're going to give what is right for each individual. It will uplift their integrity, they will have the sense of responsibility and the value for hard work. Why can't you look at us equally? that includes you by the way.
