ideally, we should be beholden to the government, not politicians. the pork is a tool where we depend on individual personalities for projects, rather than the government. a politician is like a mini-government itself! #abolishPDAF

The PDAF should be used for the betterment of the educational system(should be free), health care services, free housing for the poor #Aug26

In a presidential system, is it imperative that a legislative body hold such funds? Is it not right and just to distribute the fund to the executive body, improve the system of transparency like approving the FOI Bill. The abolition of PDAF may indeed lead to a system of another name. History dictates. Let's be vigilant.
Scrap Pnoy! Senators are doing fraud, and Congress is supporting the fraud. The nationwide televised trial against the supreme court justice Renato Corona said it all-- that Pnoy's cohorts can have their way. The removal of CJ Corona made a kick-off start in corruption. But taxpayers are is still on the front line. WE WILL EXERCISE OUR RIGHTS! People power is searching for change in the form of government. Now is definitely the time to stop all this mess.
ABOLISH PDAF! We should limit the role of Congressmen/Senators to only studying & identifying possible social development projects for their respective district/constituents. Meddling in the actual bidding, procurement and/or implementation of projects should be the functions of State bureaus and/or agencies such as DA, DPWH, DepEd, DSWD, etc. In this manner, no actual money will be given to Representative/Senators and will be directly given to the implementing agency per se. Consequently, these state bureaus and agencies should be closely monitored by other relevant agencies such as the COA, Ombudsman etc.. Lastly, active participation and monitoring from the civil society groups and/or people's organization should also be adopted e.g. FOI bill/law.
