Pacquiao is the only billionaire in the House of millionaires


MANILA, Philippines – For the second year running, Manny Pacquiao—the man with the golden fists—has won the distinction of being the richest among the 287 mostly millionaire members of the Philippine House of Representatives.

Ricardo Bering, chief of the House’s record management section, said this was based on the 2011 statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) filed at Monday’s deadline by the House members.

“His net worth even increased last year. He is still the richest here,” Bering said of the Sarangani representative, whose explosive fists have won him eight boxing division titles and worldwide fame.

Bering said Pacquiao, who claimed a personal fortune of P1.134 billion in his 2010 SALN, reported an increase in his net worth in 2011. Bering declined to give exact figures since House leaders have not given the go-signal for the public disclosure of the SALNs.

Based on the 2010 SALNs, Pacquiao was the richest member of the House last year—and the only billionaire in the chamber.

His assets then consisted of P397.933 million in real properties and P736.3 million in personal and other properties. He had no liabilities.

In contrast, Anakpawis Rep. Rafael Mariano was the poorest lawmaker, with a net worth of P75,711.

Pacquiao was reported to have earned at least $15 million each from his fights with Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez in 2011, aside from his earnings from commercial endorsements, businesses and as a member of Congress.

Pacquiao’s increasing wealth is expected to highlight further the supposed steep plunge in his tax payments, which media reports said fell from P100 million in 2008 to only P7 million in 2009.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue has filed charges against Pacquiao for his alleged failure to submit proper documents on his earnings. Pacquiao has questioned the filing of the case, saying it was baseless.

House Secretary General Marilyn B. Yap said that almost 100 percent of the House members had filed their SALNs as of 5 p.m. Monday. Yap said her staff would validate the SALNs before releasing information to the public.

Yap also said she had noticed a marked increase in the net worth reported by lawmakers in the face of increased scrutiny by the public and media as a result of the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona in connection with his assets.

“Our members have become more conscious of the SALN. That’s why they have made an effort to make a complete report this time,” said Yap.

Pacquiao topped the list of 10 richest House members in 2011.

That list included Negros Occidental Rep. Alberto Benitez, who was worth P624.847 million; Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos, who was worth P623.6 million; Negros Occidental Rep. Julio Ledesma, P555.069 million; and Leyte Rep. Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, worth P475.611 million.

Also in the top 10 were Iloilo Rep. Augusto Syjuco, worth P294.602 million; Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr., worth P283.291 million; Tarlac Rep. Enrique Cojuangco, P199.593 million; Ilocos Norte Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas, P195.78 million; and Iloilo Rep. Ferjenel Biron, P165.996 million.

Former President and Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was the 17th richest representative with a net worth of P140.212 million.

Malacañang said on Monday President Aquino and almost all of the members of his Cabinet had filed their SALNs.

“We expect all of them to comply with the deadline,” presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said, adding that Mr. Aquino filed his SALN last April 24.

Vice President Jejomar Binay and Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. have also filed their SALNs.

Mr. Aquino declared a net worth of P54.9 million. This represented a P4.8-million increase from the previous year. Mr. Aquino has said the increase in his income came from his share of the property owned by his late mother, former President Corazon Aquino.

Lacierda said the Palace expressed hope that Corona, whose ouster from the Supreme Court has been sought by Malacañang, would disclose his SALN as promised by the Chief Justice’s lawyers.

“We certainly hope so because that would be in compliance with the constitutional provision on disclosure and filing of SALNs,” Lacierda said.

He said he would be interested in taking a look at Corona’s SALN.

  • BatangSingapore

    wala kami pakeelam kay Pacquiao dahil alam namin na hindi kurakot ang tao na yan.

    pati kami paglolokohin ng Baklang Abnormal na presidente ng pilipinas na ito.

    ilabas ninyo at ang kuro kuro ninyo ang SALN ng mga conrrupt na congressman tulad ni Belmonte at Tupas.

    • walaKA

      Oi kupal ikaw ang mukhang abnormal sa mga pinagsasasabi mo!!

    • Bugbugtong

      BatangSing..Ang di pagbabayad ng buwis ay isang klase ng pangungurakot,pagnanakaw,pangungulimbat sa english corruption. Ang milyon milyon kulang ni Pacquiao sa taxes niyang ayaw o itinanggi o itanago niya ay napunta sa sarili niyang bulsa na dapat ito ay mapunta sa mga nag-didil-dil ng asin natin mga kababayan.Sa madalit salita siya ay magnanakaw at gahaman! BatangSingapore…sa Singapore ang mga taong itoy kinukolong at nabubulok sa bilanguan kaya walang masyadong “nag-uulam ng asin”sa kanila.

      • BatangSingapore

        yan ang akusasyon ng BIR at hindi nangangahulugan guilty ang tao.  lalong higit na wala pa ang hatol ng korte.



    • Vito Cruz-Katipunan

      Mr. BatangSingapore (as you presume to be one), Mr Pacquiao is surrounded by hounds of crooks like Chavit Singson and other. Pacquaio may not be stealing money at this point but he is refusing to pay the right amount  of taxes and is not setting the right role model for the masses. 

      Btw, if you’re looking for SALNs you are free to go the HoR and ask for copies. They would gladly give you that. Otherwise, shut up and know the ways and means of this country first.

      • BatangSingapore

        alam ko ways na sinasabi mo at yun ang tuwid na daan sa kurakot


        yan means ninyo ay pagnakawan naman ang mamayan.

        ako pa lokohin mo tungaw.

      • Vito Cruz-Katipunan

         Hindi kita niloloko. Aminin mo lang na wala kang alam. The problem with  you is that you refuse to see things in a bigger  picture. Just because Pacquiao is rich ay hindi na sya magnanakaw. Malaki na nga discrpancy nya sa taxes, hindi ba parang pagnanakaw na din yon? mag ingat ka sa sinasabi mo mas nagmumukha kang walang alam.

  • mel bercel

    the pinoys are waiting to see your saln mr chief justice renato corona. do not give us the standard answer ‘in due time’ it will be made public. there should be no excuses that it does not become public effetive 1 may 2012.

  • Andoy51

    Pacquiao the only billionaire in the House! Mabuhay si Pacman, ang Pambansang Kamao!

    Kaso lang bakit wala para P7 million ang binayaran niyang income tax. Nahawa na ba siya kay Renato Corona na eksperto sa pag-doctor ng kanyang SALN?

    Sana naman, magbayad ka ng tamang buwis, Manny. Idolo ka ng karamihan, lalo ng mga kabataan. Tapos hindi ka naman good citizen kundi tax evader. Paano naman kitang ibobotong presidente pagdating ng panahao?

    • BatangSingapore

      ala,in mo muna kung ano ang hinahabol ng BIR.

      tanga ka kapag kapag hinanapan mo ng tax yun bilyon ni pacman


      • Andoy51

        Magbasa ka. Mag-aral ka BatangSingapore.

        Halata naman sa mga comments mo na panggulo ka lang.

        At ayusin mo ang mga salita mo dahil wala kang urbanidad.

        Alam mo yang tawa ng tawa sa post? Baliw.

    “Our members have become more conscious of the SALN. That’s why they have made an effort to make a complete report this time,” said Yap.
    AT TALANG MAY CONSCIOUS EFFECT???Ang kailangan ng mga tongressman ay CONSCIENCE!!!

  • yaptangcom

    For all of his legendary exploits inside and outside of the ring, Pacquiao’s tax payments, if the  media reports are to be believed, fell from P100 million in 2008 to only P7 million in 2009! Just for the record, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was the president during that period. Now Kim Henares and the rest of the BIR are asking Pacquiao to pay his fair share but the Pacman is crying political harassment. Which begs the question: is this the same person projecting a bible-totting and preacher man persona these days? Pacquiao should just pay up and shut up!

    And the only true god-fearing and Bible-reading member of the House of hypocrites, too hakhakhak. I heard from the grapevine that aside from a crucifix, he will be carrying a Bible into the ring in the fight with Bradley hakhakhak.  .

    i can not see problem with pacman because he is a law abiding citizen of the world, he pays his taxes here and in the US. dapat ang busisiin ng maigi ng BIR ay iyong tax ni renato CORONA. dahil sangayon sa casaysayan,, hindi pala talaga bumabayad ng tamang buwis ang mga matataas na tao. After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of  tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”
    “Yes, he does,” he replied.
    When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own sons or from others?”
    “From others,” Peter answered.
    “Then the sons are exempt,” Jesus said to him. “But so that we may not offend them, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.” Matthew 17:24-27

  • Tama Lang

    Being a billionaire does not make you a good government servant. In his locality or province, yes, he may run for office because the local townfolks will benefit from his generosity. But in the national scene, the challenges are quite different and complicated.  We need Filipinos who are qualified, sincere, and have an attitude of ‘servant leadership’.

  • alice_in_chains

    wow! an all time lie!

    • ethicsingov

       Some truth, some lie. Better to have a SALN than none where there will be no way to base their lifestyle. As taxpayers, let’s be vigilant in ensuring that public officials and any tax-paid workers are law abiding.

  • Mang Teban

    Impeachment-phobia is effective, is it not?
    But, I am certain that most of the SALNs by the legislators do not tell the entire story about their net worth.

    I cannot believe that the poorest lawmaker has a net worth of only 57 thousand pesos. Does this guy not receive his share of the pork barrel and would like us to believe that he spent all of it for the “welfare of the poor”? “Anak pawis” o “pinapawisan sa takot na mabuko”?

    I cannot believe that the richest lawmaker has a net worth of only 1.1 billion pesos. His accountant should be prepared to lose his professional CPA license if the Bureau of Internal Revenue will examine the records of his client, Manny Pacquiao. Product endorsements and share in pay-per-view revenues should clearly amount to 2 billion pesos at least. If he has no liabilities, his assets (in cash and in non-cash assets) will amount to his net worth. Forbes Magazine has reported that Pacquiao earned in one year, US$ 25 million or about 1.1 billion pesos. His SALN should NOT be about his earnings in boxing in ONE YEAR only – what about his tangible assets bought from previous years’ earnings? Are you kidding me, Ninong?

    Really this business of the SALN is still subject to manipulation. What the public would really like to know is this – – – Why do congresspeople get richer and richer each year when their total compensation cannot possibly buy them a new condo unit or save huge foreign currency deposits? And, for legislators making lawmaking as a sideline while they can engage in other things like make a movie or earn money in sports, what are they doing in Congress?

    • Basang Sisiw

      ask the CJ

  • santosboi

    yeah and the reason he is the most coz he got his worth from good ways. unlike his colleague that came from anywhere unknown ang yaman. kaw ba naman ilagay mo sa anak mo, sa asawa mo, sa karelated mo ang nakaw na yaman mo malamang pulubi ka sa SALN mo. hahaha

    Manny Pacquiao was blessed with fists of gold, but he
    has yet to show whether he’s got a golden brain to be
    a leader of the people, too.

    More recently, he has been talking to God, and that
    seems a bad sign.
