Members of the Social Security System, supported by their elected representatives in both chambers of Congress, should pour the pressure on Administrator Romulo Neri on the SSS’ P12.5 billion “contribution” to Gloria Arroyo’s P330 billion economic stimulus fund.
When the “contribution” was first floated by Arroyo during a meeting last year with business leaders, the impression given was that it was more of an exaction from every government financial institution with money to spare. Some billions from the SSS. More billions from the Development Bank of the Philippines. A few billions from the Land Bank.
