Conrad De Quiros’s take on the proposed budget

8 Oct

Check out how Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Conrad De Quiros recently lashed Budget Secretary Butch Abad’s budget allocations by clicking here.

Here’s an excerpt:

“…how in God’s name can the budget secretary know more than the communications secretary what he actually needs? I’ve heard of budget secretaries telling departments heads, ‘No, what you’re asking is too much.’ This is the first time I’ve heard of a budget secretary telling a department head, ‘No, what you’re asking is too little, let’s double it. No, that’s not enough, let’s triple it. No, that’s still not enough, let’s quadruple it.’

Three, while at that, why on earth would you need P50 million, let alone P200 million to formulate or craft the President’s messages?”
