In a Facebook post, Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Chu taunted Senator Risa Hontiveros by borrowing the line she uttered when ABS-CBN’s franchise was denied.
‘MANININGIL ANG KASAYSAYAN, DI BA, SENATOR RISA HONTIVEROS?’
Ms. Chu remarked she found it odd for Philhealth to put out ads starring its Philhealth chairmen – but when Risa Hontiveros was going to run for senator, her ads was all over the place.
‘Philhealth doesn’t need to put out TV ads starring its Philhealth chairmen—but when Risa Hontiveros was going to run for Senator, her ads was always running on TV, across multiple channels.’
Ms. Chu found it irresistible to invite netizens to compute the cost of Risa Hontiveros’ Philhealth ads back then when was going to run for senator.
‘Back then the cost to run the ad was about P440,000 (no tax yet, just basic cost) per 30 seconds. (PER 30 seconds.) How many times did the PHILHEALTH ad. come out?’
Ms. Chu recalled former Senator Herrera issued a warning about Philhealth losing money for adverts during Hontiveros’ imminent run for a senate slot in 2016.
‘Former Senator Ernesto Herrera once warned that the public health fund was losing money for advertising during Risa’s imminent run for Senate in 2016, as Philhealth was spending for her information campaign. KAILANGAN NGA NAMAN, Risa ran and lost in 2013. (I think she also lost in 2010. She badly needed the Philhealth platform.)’
‘One of the many ways the previous administration “legalized” its spending for elections using our own money,’ Ms. Chu lamented.
Ms. Chu mentioned the name of another Senator who also had Philhealth ads. (Many years ago, Loren Legarda would also have PHILHEATH ads.)
Ms. Chu sneered at the thought of Philhealth running ads and having Risa Hontiveros as endorser at the time when she was running for the senate. That’s why, Ms Chu can’t help but conclude that the wokes like to allege that DUTERTE is a propagandist because they are guilty of using government funds.
‘As if kailangan ni Philhealth mag ad, at kailangan si Risa Hontiveros pa talaga, during the times she was running for Senate. Kaya pala ang hilig nyo magparatang na propagandist si Duterte, kasi kayo mismo GOVERNMENT FUNDS ginagamit nyo.’
On Risa Hontiveros supporters defending the senator from allegation of misusing Philhealth funds, Ms. Chu wondered how would the wokes defend the shameless use of Philhealth to help boost awareness about Risa?
SO ANO ULIT, WALANG KINALAMAN SI RISA HONTIVEROS SA PANG AABUSO SA FUNDS NG PHILHEALTH? ANONG TAWAG SA GARAPALANG PAG GAMIT NG PHILHEALTH TO HELP BOOST AWARENESS ABOUT RISA?
Ms. Chu was seething with anger because now, after benefiting from
Philhealth, she pretends she doesn’t know about the plunder of Philhealth funds.
Tapos ngayon, after nakinabang sa Philhealth, NAG MAMAANG MAANGAN that she doesn’t know about the plunder that happened there.
Ms. Chu asked Hontiveros why did she allow this to happen? She hope the COA will break down the actual expenditure because the ads aired for months.
Ok Risa, how did you allow this to happen? I hope the COMMISSION ON AUDIT breaks down the actual expenditure because this aired for many months.
Ms. Chu reckoned that if this was Duque using Philhealth ads for propaganda, she bet Risa’s hypocrite mouth will run off, pretending to be some social justice warrior concerned about the spending, correct? Ms. Chu bluntly told Risa she’s not what she thinks she is but someone just paying off her debt of gratitude to the admin that finally gave her the coveted Senate seat.
Pero Risa kung si Duque gumamit ng Philhealth ads for propaganda, your hypocrite mouth will run off for sure, pretending to be some social justice warrior concerned about the spending, ano? You’re not some social justice warrior, Risa, you’re just paying off your utang na loob to the administration that finally gave you your much desired Senate seat.
Ms. Chu gave the Opposition a heads up with pleasure.
‘Buko na kayo. Marami pa ang lalabas.’
Ms. Chu ended the FB post by taking a swipe, one more time with feelings, at the wokes whom she said became politically aware only in 2016, throwing tantrums that their perfect Philippines is looking like this now.
‘So HI EVERYTHING sa mga ngayon lang politically aware na akala mo pag gising nila ng 2016, yung perfect Pilipinas nila ganito na ang ichura.’
