CONG ABY BINAY MADE A GOOD POINT TODAY ON HER MORNING INTERVIEW WHEN SHE RESPONDED TO THE QUESTION OF HER RENTING A HOUSE IN DASMA VILL MAKATI WHILE HER HOUSE IN SANLORENZO VILL WAS BEING BUILT BY SAYING, “HINDI NAMAN KAMI POOR DI BA?”
Oo nga naman. Mukhang di kayo poor. But heres the thing. Im from a family where one parent was in government from 1986 until he died ( Justice Francis Garch) and my mother was on and off with every govt except ERAPs.
Now our financial situation was such where it was my mom, who was a corporate executive for a TOP 100 company for DECADES, who brought in most of the money that we used for education and lifestyle. In fact evne today, some of my sibs and myself, still need a bit of a helping hand from her.
Now whats interesting is that VP BINAY and my father entered govt at roughly the same time (around late 80s) when lawyer Jejomar Binay was given the post of Makati City Mayor and my father was given the office of the Sandiganbayan.
After decades in govt, my father had no property to his name, save an apartment that my mom paid for after they separated. If he had not died of cancer at 65, he would have retired with about 20M. A nice sum of money but not extravagant in any sense.
Which leads me to this question, It seems that the Binay kids have done very well for themselves. As young as they are they can afford houses in Makati Subdivisions and have houses with elevators. It makes me wonder if we can ask CONGRESSWOMAN ABY BINAY, to explain their kind of lifestyle, considering that her father has been Mayor almost non stop since 86, with breaks only when his wife took over, and all of the kids seem to have so much at so young an age. I don’t think Jejomar went into private practice when he was not mayor and I ahvent heard of the Binay kids being top notch in whatever field they entered prior to taking their elected govt posts.
So Yung hindi antanong nang host kaninang umaga tatanungin ko na. Since it was CONG ABY herself who opened up the door to her not being poor, how then have the kids managed so well when logically, the income of a Mayor (the elder Binay) couldn’t have paid for much of what they seem to have and they don’t seem to be the paragons of anyting outside of staying in power for close to three decades?
