It really does not matter whether the PDAF nor the Philippines Congress exist or not.
The culture of greed will always find a way to seep any bank or pocket full of money.
During Marcos, there was no Congress and Pork Barrel (PDAF), but corruption and stealing were rampant at the time, the President, his family and his close friends.
The only difference is the number of corrupt politicians that has access to the money.
In today’s political structure, hundreds of congressmen has access to PDAF, which if it falls to demented ones, it will end up Napoles style.
What to do?
1. I can think of is the approval of Freedom of Information bill. If FOI is approved, any Filipino can have access to information, from the receipts, the contract, of each of the government’s transactions and deals.
2. Prayer, I believe in the power of prayer.
3. Be honest even if others are not. This is the motto of a Christian businessmen organization. The full text is “Be Honest, even if others are not, even if others will not, even if others cannot. He who walks honestly, walks securely. Proverbs 10:9”
