Where do our taxes go anyway???
There is a reason why so many Filipinos, and that includes me, hate paying taxes… we see no benefits from it!
In the news a few minutes ago, a man got hit by a speeding Honda Civic. He was hit hard in the head and needed to be rushed to the hospital right away. Do you know that a couple of hospitals in Parañaque have no ambulance? Grabe talaga! Where can you find hospitals without an ambulance on standby? If it weren’t for the news crew of ABS-CBN, I doubt if help will be given to that hit and run victim. When finally an ambulance arrived, it has no medical crew in it! Thank goodness some well meaning barangay officials helped.
Upon arriving at the hospital, the victim was made to wait once more because the doctors were hesitant in admitting him. My guess would be because of financial concerns. Could the victim pay them? But because there’s the news crew of ABS-CBN, the hospital was forced to admit the victim.
Take a moment and imagine yourself in the victim’s shoes. You are paying taxes to this godforsaken government and you couldn’t even be given first aid???
