The Secretary of Health recently admitted that the Philippine medical system is in crisis and could face eventual collapse. He stated that a whopping 88 percent of health care professionals are now abroad. There is only one government doctor to attend to every 28,000 Filipinos.
The looming collapse is the direct product of years of neglect to the healthcare system. Did the good Secretary actually expect anything better whenever you allocated a measly 1% of the national budget towards healthcare? He should have fought harder long ago to end the criminal neglect shown to the health needs of the nation.
Now it is too late. I am convinced, with the startling revelations made today that the husband of GMA was set to gain $70 million over a broadband deal that this corrupt political order is coming to an end. And I am not referring to the presidency alone. Look how all these governors and congressmen immediately went to the aid of their crumbling way of life. Just as it is never within the interests of parasites to kill their hosts, the days of these vermin are numbered.
I hope that the change will happen peacefully but when we learn of the staggering amounts of dirty money involved, that possibility becomes remote. There is too much at stake for these people and their armed minions to give up without violent protestations.
In a crowded city, it is difficult to see dark clouds form in the distance. Try scanning the horizon from the vast plains of Oklahoma.
