Santo Domingo.- The senators Rafael Calderon and Heinz Vieluf yesterday defended the use of the Social Fund “the keg,” affirming that the resources are used to help residents in their provinces with urgent and serious problems, such as sickness and death, among other s.

They said if they didn’t have to help with those emergencies, they would have more time to fulfill their Congressional duties.

The lawmakers’ statement comes amid the population’s snowballing rebuke of discretionary use of taxpayers’ money, and growing calls to abolish the Senate to establish an unicameral legislature.

What a load of B.S.

They want these funds for themselves.

the problem is that these animals just do not get it. the country is in a world of sh*t. Leonel maxed out the .overdraft, and now the country is broke. the lender has conditions. these morons would rather have their slush fund, and see the country go into the crapper, than pull together to solve the mess. there is no hope. sorry to say it, but it is the gospel truth.

Charity should not be a senatorial duty.

I don't trust these rascals with access of any kind to Dominican money. They view such funds as their own, and likely use it for their queridas and yipetas, etc.

absolutely, Glomar. if the military brass has no idea where the soldiers are, and how many of them there are, how is anyone going to keep track of how these losers spend free money?

The country of top comedy that is not funny, with no punch line at the end...

Abandon ship... We can all see the rocks a head but the government wants to fuel it with more taxes without changing direction....

" and growing calls to abolish the Senate to establish an unicameral legislature."

No good reason for SO many representatives. Make it an unicameral legislature and spend it on trained teachers instead.

And Dready, yes there is a fiscal mess, but at least the economy IS GROWING. Other nations have a fiscal mess AND NO GROWTH. And that is a Titanic problem.
