Netizens can’t help but be amused at the fight involving House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno and former Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez in connection with the national budget.

A meme is making the rounds online about a “Gang of Five” comprised of Arroyo, Diokno, Alvarez, Ilocos Norte Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas and Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles.

Except for Arroyo, placed below the photos of the four politikos were the amounts from the national budget that they supposedly used to their own advantage.

Alvarez, Arroyo’s predecessor as Speaker, reportedly got P5 billion for infrastructure projects in the proposed 2019 budget. He’s followed by Nograles, a former congressman for Davao City, with P4 billion and Fariñas with P.5 billion.

As for Diokno, he was accused of allotting P4.8 billion worth of infrastructure projects to Sorsogon this year because his daughter is the daughter-in-law of the province’s vice governor, Ester Hamor.

The House summoned Diokno to answer questions about the budget after Arroyo was accused of receiving a P2.4 billion budget for infrastructure projects for her district in the 2019 national budget.
