PART 2

(via ABS-CBN News)

Liberal Party vice presidential candidate MAR Roxas also explains in this interview that EVAT/taxes in themselves are not bad. Taxes fund the operations of the government, and build the needed infrastructure such as roads, ports, and bridges all over the country. It’s when these taxes are stolen by corrupt government officials and are used for their personal purposes that makes VAT/EVAT evil. These taxes also enable local officials like mayors to give benefits to their constituents like free birthday cakes to their senior citizens, etc. Just to be fair, Roxas did not author the E-VAT Law.
