MY FIGHT is against ‘pork’ and corruption, and nothing more.
It is never about the House or its members, even if some of them take turns in insisting otherwise.
For one, the chair of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Sid Ungab, is one of their many decent members whom Rep. [LRay] Villafuerte tried to undermine by attempting to withdraw the budget measure from his committee, but held his ground and rejected his malevolent move.
As for Rep. Villafuerte and his claim of a ‘ceasefire,’ for once he should stop prevaricating. How could I not honor something that I did not have knowledge about? He should not put words into my mouth then comment on it himself.
