ABS-CBN broadcaster Adrian Ayalin breaks down the broken promises of previous State of the Nation Addresses (SONA) a day after President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo delivers her last SONA this Tuesday night (July 28) on “The Correspondents.”

Every year, PGMA speak about defeating poverty in her report on the nation’s condition. But until now, millions of Filipinos remain poor. Instead of spending time on finding ways to alleviate this national predicament, the government seems to be more immersed in the issue of charter change.

Daria Abite is just one of the 27.6 million Filipinos languishing in poverty. The P600 that she and her husband earn in a week from selling clothes and collecting garbage is not adequate to support their family so they were forced to give up four of their eight children for adoption. She said a decent job and regular wage would haul them up from their situation.
