Bobby: Your arithmetic is wrong. The congressional pork barrel per year amounts to Pesos: Twenty-nine-billion (spelled with a B) and 800-million. Here are the computations: 250 members of the House of Representatives, including party-list members @ Pesos 100-million each = Equals Pesos 25-billion. (As one billion is equals 1,000 million; ergo, 100 congressmen @ Pesos 100-million each = Equals one-billion. 24 senators @ Pesos 200-million each per year = Equals 4.80-billion. Your estimate of Pesos seven-billion and 200-million is way off. You were mistaken by the number of zeros in a billion: nine. Hundred million has only eight zeroes. Mar
