Challenge to the 17th Congress

The 17th Congress opened Monday this week. This Congress is comprised of the few who control much of the country’s natural resources and finance. Their economic power is reinforced by their power to determine laws and policies for the land and it’s people. In the recent past, the power as well to appropriate without publicly-approved spending plans considerable amounts of people’s monies. Citizens have seen the ease at which members of Congress, cavorting with business and corporate interests, thwart public interest.

For so long, it was all about their interests. And for so long, Filipinos have been barking at the Executive to do something significant for the nation. Mga kababayan, the Executive is just one man or woman.

Members of Congress need to be more expansive as life has been expansive to them. Do include the nation when you think of your own interests.
