DOH and Philhealth Budget Anomalies
Sources of unplanned budgets are the DOTRr, DPWH, and other projects that can’t be done yet due to some circumstances. Lawmakers have a hard time balancing the redirection because of the anomalies at the DOH and Philhealth amidst the Pandemic. Earlier, Senator Imee Marcos urges the Secretary of Finance, Carlos Dominguez to take a loan from the World Bank.

Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez disputes Masagana 99 success. He said that he was the one who clears that up. Domingues insists that the country’s World Bank privilege is due to proper financial management. That is why he does not want to borrow more money despite the almost zero interest rate from the World Bank to help people due to the pandemic. Marcos said that no bank would lend to countries with no money. However, the international bank was set up to help rebuild nations. The Philippines is still a third world country with huge potentials. Besides, the favorable interest rate can only mean that the country’s gold deposits are indeed existent.

The Philippines is thought to be the land of Ophir. History dictates that most of the world’s gold is in the country. There are legal documentations that they are consolidated in trust funds under the Marcos foundation. His last will and testament detail the proceeding that they are for the welfare of humanity. The recipients are the Filipino people. Is Senator Marcos’s confidence when it comes to the World Bank derives from this? By the way, at the end of the vaccine purchasing struggle, the initial doses are reported to be financed by the World Bank and ADB.
