Juana Change to heartless congressmen: F*ck you!
Some congressmen are a bunch of callous and egotistical men for refusing to fight for the proposed increase in Social Security System (SSS) pension, according to comedienne and activist Mae Paner, also known as Juana Change.
Giving them the middle finger, Paner went on a rant against the lawmakers who abruptly ended the session last Wednesday to stop any attempt to override President Aquino’s veto on the SSS pension hike. She used the hashtag #pakyu16thcongress in her Facebook posts as she lamented the sad plight of senior citizens seeking the much-needed pension.
“Sa huling araw ng konggreso, pagkatapos ng mahigit tatlo’t kalahating oras ng paghihintay, sa loob lang ng isang minuto, parang kidlat na nag adjourn ang Congress. Naghuhumiyaw ang mga senior at umiiyak. Umalis ang halos lahat ng mga konggresistang walang malasakit. They simply did not care.
F–k this 16th Congress! Napaisip ako. Dapat pa ba ba tayong maniwala sa eleksyon? Ngarat ang daliri. Pero sino ang bastos?” Paner said on Facebook.
Another post of Paner read: “#pakyu16thcongress May time para kay Pia, wala pa para kay lola!” She was referring to the red-carpet welcome given by lawmakers to Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach when she visited the Lower House last week.
”#pakyu16thcongress puro kayo bulsa, wala kayong puso,” she added.
