The Department of Finance (DOF) announced on March 7 that they were planning to distribute P1,000 worth of cash aid to 9.3-M households to lessen the effects of inflation in the country.
According to the Targeted Cash Transfer (TCT) program, a P500 will be distributed to households within the next two months.
However, the program of the said government was not popular among netizens, including talent manager Ogie Diaz.
In his tweet, Ogie said it’s better for the government to produce jobs instead of giving cash aid to the people.
He even doubted if the said program would become corruption-free.
“Sana, trabaho ang i-produce. Eh sa ayuda na yan, anong assurance na sa brgy level eh walang kupitang magaganap? Sa brgy lang ba?”

Fans of Ogie agreed with what the talent manager said.
“Same sentiments po nay @ogiediaz. Mas namimihasa ang mga tao na nag aantay sa ayuda. Bakit hindi sila iguide sa business na pde nilang pagkakitaan.” netizen Charmed said.
“Ineencourage lang ang “nakasahod” behavior instead of empowering them na makabangon at angat buhay lahat..slave mentality para madali icontrol,” netizen Mango commented.
“Dinadaan talaga sa pera… Marami Ang matutuwa kasi easy money eh.. Lalo na ang mga tamad na marami pang bisyo. Short term tulong kurakot too loooong.” netizen Ache stated.
