    1. Miski si Trillanes hindi naniniwala sa SALN nya. Paano sya nagkaroon ng 6M? cge nga san galing yan e sundalong kanin yan pati yung asawa nya, may buy n sell sila pero Malabo sa 6 million ang kinita non. Kahit doblehin mo sweldo nya hindi pa din aabot unless hindi sila kumakain at bumibili ng kahit anong bagay.

      Honesty and integrity are the words of Manny Paquiao when he was interrogating Edgar Motabato in the Senate and it is about time for him to show to the whole country that he has INTEGRITY by paying the taxes he owed to the government. The Government needs the money to build hospitals, especially in southern area of the country and much more needed to build half decent or livable houses for policemen and soldiers. Nananawagan po and buong bayan sa iyo Senator Paquiao, na sana po ay iyong bayaran, ang utang mo sa bayan, dahil matindi po ang pangangailangan. Sana po ay iyon tigilan ng pagyayabang, na ikaw ang pinakamayaman sa buong bayan, at panahon na rin upan bayaran, ang iyong obligasyon na utang.

    3. Is that all Trillanes is worth after 2 terms in the senate? Unbelievable , as senator he must have earned hundreds of millions in salaries and allowances. This persona must have mismanaged his earnings and resources recklessly ……….

    4. Pork barrel thieves declaring the stolen funds as their own.

      Too bad there is no agency in the Philippines that will track down the stolen funds and charge the honorable senators with plunder.

      Tax evaders and thieves.

    5. Mas mayaman pa dapat si Mrs Villar kesa sa naka declare. Kaso bagsak presyo ng Vista Land nila. Stock investors give more value to the Ayala and Sy stocks. It seems that investors trust the Ayalas and Sys than Villars. Just my opinion.

    6. Si Trillianes, poorest? Ha ha ha. Nagbibiro yata. Sinong maniniwala na P6M lang ang worth niya? Eh, saan niya tiinago iyong natanggap niya sa DAP, not to mention that he was the biggest recipients among senators of travel allowance maski nakakulong pa siya noon?

    7. Si Psquiao dapat bayaran na niya yon tax niya para magamit na yon pera sa proyecto infrastructure ni President Digong. Puro porma na bilyonaryo dapat bayaran yon tax niya para magamit yob pera sa mabuting paraan.
