Over 300 govt agencies & LGUS have not remitted GSIS contributions of their employees. Caloocan Mayor Recom Echeverri not only one.

@Karen_DaviLa Ampatuan overnight at Heart Center, another instance of the rule of men, not rule of law. Courts r disobeyed in simple orders.

@cesdrilon More liberal agenda, less govt, less bureaucracy, free market, less subsidies for the lazy

@Karen_DaviLa Educ, health, housing, agri, pub works for d poor on-going, then CCT for d poor, soon condoms & ligation for d poor.

@RPeconfreedom Yes, the Renewable Energy law is a big racket & energy robbery by the RE firms. One of the man-made warming rackets.
