    One of the presidentiables should take as a platform a Get-Well-Now/Pay-Later-Plan where Filipino-citizens (depending on collateral provided and their creditworthiness) borrow money from ????? to pay for medicine and medical services.

    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
