People mad at Aquino for not abolishing pork -

As I See It By Neal H. Cruz
Philippine Daily Inquirer

Headline: (Janet Lim-) Napoles owns 28 houses (in the Philippines).

Wrong. She owns 30, including the "Upper House" (Senate) and the House of Representatives.

One Luis Abalos, who is neither a senator nor a congressman, got P20 million in pork barrel funds.

Are you still surprised? Janet Lim-Napoles, who is also not a senator or a congresswoman, got P10 billion in pork.

Former representative Manuel "Way Kurat" Zamora of Compostela, hailed in the past as the "poorest congressman," could turn out to be one of the richest. According to the Commission on Audit (COA), he received P3.114 billion in pork allocations in his last three years in Congress. He couldn't explain how and why he could have gotten that much, saying his total allocation for those three years was only P210 million.

Possible explanation: Somebody else got the money but recorded it in his name.

It's turning out that one of the biggest culprits in the pork barrel scams that involve bogus nongovernment organizations (NGOs) is the Department of Budget and Management. Through the years, the department has been playing fast and loose with the people's money. It was so easy to get the DBM to release funds for fake NGOs. All that Napoles' employees had to do was call Leah, Lalaine and Malou at the DBM and the pork barrel funds would be released quickly, according to whistle-blowers Benhur K. Luy and Merlina Suñas.
