    Pork barrel should be abolished, It’s a known fact that the corruption came mainly from that barrel. Philippines and those honest hardworking people deserved honest, unselfish government workers. People tried their best to pay taxes and remit money but the cheating pig politicians, magalit na ang matamaan. They have the nerve to spend like king or Queen with Peoples money. They act like the money belongs to them that they have no remorse for their action. They act like they deserve the money . I’m for sure if this will PB disappears the Philippines would be a better place for all the Filipino who wants to better their lives. Get rid of the pork barrel!!
