MANILA, Philippines—Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Wednesday urged fellow members of the House of Representatives to “set aside legislative work” to extend help to those affected by Typhoon Pablo (international name Bopha).

In a statement, Arroyo who now represents the second district of Pampanga, said the “government should always be at the forefront of trying times like this.”

The former President, who is presently under hospital arrest for charges of plunder, said that helping distressed countrymen should come first.

One lawmaker who is taking time off from work at the House of Representatives is Compostela Valley (first district) Representative Ma. Carmen Zamora, who is now on her way to her constituents.

In a text message to reporters, she said that her district was the first to receive a heavy blow from the typhoon and appealed for help.

The House of Representatives has been working overtime to pass key measures before they go on Christmas break. One of these is the controversial Reproductive Health Bill, which President Benigno Aquino III has urged legislators to vote on.

    Itong sira ulo nating presidente, notorious ito for being a coward, lazy and heartless.

    Nagtatago nga ito tuwing may bagyo.

    Walang pakialam sa mga nasasalanta.

    At lumalabas lang pag pwede nang mag pa photo-op sa mga biktima.

  • jadejones2012

    We love you, GMA!

    The Filipinos are sick and tired of this incompetent, piece of- s h  i  t  president that we have now.

    This buffon’s name is PNOY.

    He also markets himself as tuwid na daan, but his governement is riddled by corruption, led by his KKK (Kabarilan, Kaibigan, Kamag-anak).

    Hindi lang tarantado ang taong ito, corrupt pa!

    • concern_netizen

      Hehe, nawalan ka siguro ng raket kay Pnoy no?  I hope you are not one of the smugglers of imported rice during GMA.  In 2009, we imported more than 2million tons of rice making us the world’s largest rice importer.  For your info, we are expecting to import only 150,000 tons of rice next year, and probably will have surplus the following year.  If this is not progress, I don’t know what is.  Don’t worry, election is coming in four years.  By then you can elect GMA back to office, but for now, please allow majority of the Filipinos to enjoy the fruits of a “tuwid na daan”

    Mrs. Arroyo being a rabid supporter of CBCP and the MitsuBishops is now trying to lend a hand to the church’s call to delay voting on the RH bill in pretense of helping the typhoon victims.

    Concerned government agencies and the LGUs are already there doing their jobs, hence the lawmakers should likewise do their jobs in the House. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HUE7BZXUJ7I5AFIBEPSIBONAHA Alfred A

       Unfortunately the way our system works, Lawmakers (congressmen) are the source of funds for the LGU’s. Without them no funding will come-out.

    • billy gunner

       seems that, like your president, you have a different view of what things should come first. or maybe you’re the president himself disguised as ryane(?)!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HUE7BZXUJ7I5AFIBEPSIBONAHA Alfred A

    Puro nalang RH Bill..condom at ibapa.. magtrabaho kayo puntahon ninyo ang mga victims sa Mindanao. Why not buy relief goods instead of condoms???

    ARROYO!!! bakit di mo bawasan ang perang ninakaw mo sa kaban ng bayan para naman makatulong ka…wag mong ipitin sa bulsa at cabinet mo ang mga kayamanang ninakaw nyo.. ngayun mo sabihin sa mga kaalyado mong congresista na yung mga ninanakaw ninyong pera eh bawasan at ipamigay sa mga naapektuhan ng bagyo at mga sarisaring kalamidad.

    malaking tulong yan MRS. arroyo, at pakisabi na rin sa mga ibang magnanakawa sa gobyerno na sa panahon ng kalamidad eh wag na munang isipin ang kanilang sarili ganansiya..yung perang nakalaan na pondo para sa mga kalamidad na ang pangunahing apektado eh mga mahihirap sana naman eh wag nang kurakutin pa, kaawaawa naman kung isang kilong bigas at isang lata ng sardinas na lang eh ipagkakait pa sa kanila…magkameron sana kayo ng pusong me awa sa inyong kapwa…itigil nyo na ang pagpapaimbabaw sa mga taong walang kakayahang umintindi sa mga maiitim ninyong budhi na wala ng inisip na iba kundi magpayaman sa sarili..

    yun sanang kinurap ninyong pera na pinambilio ng tonetoneladang bigas sa INDIA na bulok at di naisaing kahit isang kilo man dun sa nabili na yun eh iawas nyo na sa mga ninakaw ninyo at ipamahagi sa inyong kapwa na sinasabi ninyong dapat tulungan at iprioritize.

    Maawa sana kayo sa mga dukha at mararalitang pilipino na wala namang ibang lalapitan kundi ang mga katulad ninyong magnanakaw sa gobyerno…Pera naman ng taong bayan yan it’s high time siguro na ilabas nyo ngayun yan sa panahong gipit na gipit na sila at walang malapitang iba kundi sa mga katulad ninyong walang budhi at magnanakaw dahil tama lamang naman na sa inyo sila lumapit dahil nas inyo ang kanilang kwarta…nasa inyo ang kanilang bigas na isasaing…nasa inyo ang sardinas na kanilang iluluto…

  • Maldi2

    This are the traits of a president that we miss from this current Administration.  Minsan lang lumabas si Pnoy sa Taguig at Marikina para tulungan ang mga nabagyo, pero bitbit naman ang mga kandidato nyang Senador – , nangangapanya!  PWE!

    Even as GMA is hard of breathing, she could not stop thinking of the Pablo victims. Considering how PNoy’s administration utterly failed in disaster response and rescue when the last big storm Sendong struck the south, GMA has all the more reasons to worry about the Pablo victims. Here’s a little girl, who despite being slowly choked to death through a neckbrace by the big bully in the palace, still manages to be so selfless. At times like this, we cannot help but be reminded of our lady of VMMC. So cute, so cuddly, so pretty, prettier than pink.

    We love you GMA!

    while Arroyo urges her fellow congressmen to help save lives, Aquino, on the other hand, urges these same congressmen to vote for a bill that will prevent lives.

  • Your_King

    Arroyo would have urged Aquino to prioritize ‘Pablo’ victims but she is already aware that Aquino’s main priority is victimizing and persecuting her.
