A top official of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) hit PhilHealth’s controversial policy wherein all overseas Filipino workers will be mandated to pay three percent of their salaries on the health insurance.

“Why don’t we just leave OFWs alone except to help them when they are in trouble. Their blood but better wages abroad account for 10% of our GDP according to the assholes who want to take some of their earnings,” DFA secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. posted on Twitter.

He added that after the abolition of the income tax on OFWs, PhilHealth has figured out another way to tax OFWs out ‘for the great privilege of being born Filipino, poor and jobless at home.’

“They are just totally out of purview of government exaction for which they will not benefit at all.”
