i would say that corruption in our country is extremely high, why am my saying this, its because few years before we are in 13th rank as the most corrupt country. But now as what ex senator Miriam Defensor stated during her last interview that we are not at second but at as first. One of the primary reason why this has been the major crisis in our country, this is due to all the hidden agenda that has been done by the senators and congressman, you may not known or notice that this political tycon is mostly accumulating the wealth and the taxes of the masses. Most the Filipino were so blind by this truth, that the senators are receiving billins of dollar upon three years term. Now you ll be the judge if you believe this or not

Yeah, that is what the government is so good at because they have to control the people somehow. And there is nothing better than corruption.
