The House of Representatives' vote on a bill allowing full foreign ownership over the public services sector is proof that we are being sold out to China and other countries.
The government should tighten security in our public services after learning that a Chinese state company owning 40% of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) can remotely shut down our power if they want. But it seems the House now wants to surrender to China our water, our communications, and our transportation too!
Here's the cruel irony: while the government is trying to shut down media outlets it accuses of foreign ownership, this bill wants countries like China to take over our public services!
While illegal Chinese offshore gaming sites abuse women and children and refuse to pay taxes, the approval of House Bill 78 adds insult to injury. This unconstitutional bill sends the message that rich foreigners are favored over the welfare of Filipinos.
