If Marcos was still President he would have threatened to sequester these monopolies unless they tow the line. Meralco was bought by the Marcos regime and the housewife president gave it back to the Lopeze’s for nothing… Now the son is propping it up. Poor Filipino people, like Rizal said the indolence of the Filipinos is now prevailing. Basket case Philippines, Notice how the rich are getting richer, and all are your Presidents cohorts. I LOVE THE PHILIPPINES AND IT’S PEOPLE BUT I HATE THIS GOVERNMENT!

And don’t we ever forget the power plants are undergoing preventive maintenance daw(?) as it is shutdown therefore not operating but the consumers will still be paying for the undelivered electricity! (and get taxed as well, VAT for it) this is stipulated in the oppressive “eh, pera” i mean EPIRA! the creation of FVR’s gorillas!

Para may pakinabang naman kay cabalen robert eh ulit ulitin mo ang mga panlalanang ng Meralco et.al.. sa taong bayan hangang Valentines 2014 at baka sakaling maibalik ang hold up na singil ng Meralco. Kaya lang I remember Meralco’s prices also increases yearly during Gloria’s time and that was 9 long years of Meralco price increases.
