For demanding PRRD to explain P7.16 national debt, Leni Robredo draws jeers from lawyer Glenn Chong, La Salle prof Contreras

It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

This is the kind of comment Leni Robredo has been getting lately on Facebook for her penchant of making statements on every issue outside her competence.

Rather than appearing knowledgeable in the eyes of the public, Robredo has become the laughing stock on social media.

In case you missed it, Robredo demanded President Duterte to explain the P7.16 national debt as per PhilStar’s headline recently.

When Leni Robredo’s headline-grabbing statement came to lawyer Glenn Chong’s attention, he wasted no time in roasting Robredo on Facebook.

In the Facebook post, Chong lectured the VP on budget deficit and national debt exposing her stupidity and ignorance as a legislator.

WALANG KATAPUSANG PAGKAKAMALI
NI LENI ROBREDO!!!

Tila walang katapusan ang pagkakamali ng ale na ito.

Leni Robredo demanded, take note, she demanded, na ipaliwanag ng administrasyong Duterte kung bakit lumubo ang utang ng gobyerno sa P7.16 trilyong piso (7,160 bilyong piso o 71,600 milyong piso).

Bago pumuna, dapat mag-aral muna upang hindi magmukhang BOBO!

Mula 1988, panahon ni Corazon Aquino, hanggang 2017, panahon ni Rodrigo Duterte, pati na ang panahon ni Noynoy Aquino, kulang ang nalilikom na pondo ng gobyerno upang matustusan ang mga pangangailangan ng sambayanan. Ang tawag dito ay budget deficit.

* Sa mga taong 1994 hanggang 1997 lamang na walang budget deficit ang gobyerno.

On the average, mula 1988 hanggang 2017, ang budget deficit ng ating bansa ay pumapalo sa 2.08% ng kabuuang halaga ng mga produkto at serbisyong nagagawa ng bansa o Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Ito ay pumapalo sa daan-daang bilyon taon-taon.

Dahil dito, napipilitan ang gobyerno na mangutang upang mapunuan ang pagkukulang sa pondo nito, taon-taon. Kaya ang P7.16 trilyong utang ngayon ay accumulated debts o pinagpatung-patung na utang mula pa noon.

Kaya maling-mali na ang administrasyong Duterte ang pagbibintangan ni Leni Robredo sa mga pagkakautang na ito.

Besides, ang budget deficits na ito ay dumadaan sa Kongreso kada taon. At dahil naging kasapi si Leni Robredo ng Kongreso, dapat ay alam niya ito. Kung hindi niya ito alam, wala pala talaga siyang silbi bilang Congresswoman. Kung alam naman niya ito, malisyoso ang kanyang hininging pagpapaliwanag sa Pangulong Duterte. Pumili lang siya sa dalawang ito – kanyang kabobohan o malisyosong pagpaparatang.

Finally, bakit palaging deficit ang ating budget? Simple lang ang dahilan. Kurapsyon sa pangungulekta ng buwis at kurapsyon sa paggastos ng pera ng bayan.

Dahil sa marumi at madayang halalan, nakakapasok at nananatili ang mga kurakot na politiko na walang ginagawa kundi patuloy na halayin ang kaban ng bayan. At dahil nakikita ito ng mga kolektor ng buwis, pati sila nangungurakot at din. Kaya this vicious cycle goes on and on.

La Salle professor Dr. Antonio Contreras couldn’t help but make a comment on Facebook that Leni Robredo’s poor math skills has become an embarrassment.

Nakakahiya na talaga ang math skills ni Robredo. Economics graduate yan ng UP ha.

Meanwhile, social media blogger MJ Quiambao Reyes reminded Robredo that silence is better than talking when you know nothing.

MADAM,

As the saying goes, “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”

Of the 7.16T, 6.4 of that was inherited (some 4T, accdg to Foreign Debt Coalition & as reported by Rappler, were incurred by previous admin). So, how about asking B.S. Aquino how our national debt ballooned during their time?

Thereafter, look around you. Open your eyes: There are thousands of on-going infrastructure projects nationwide. Yes, thousands of farm-to-market roads, bridges, seaports, airports, terminals, etc. It does not take a genius to actually see and understand where the 700B+ (debt incurred by current admin) goes.

Your thoughts?
