"Believe you me, [businessmen] are really sick and tired of politics," Favila told reporters in Malacañang yesterday after joining Ms Arroyo in a roundtable discussion of positive developments in the economy.
Favila said businessmen were after the passage of only three measures -- the antiterrorism and anti-smuggling bills and the bill on fiscal incentives.
He said businessmen would rather engage in making money.
"Kung may pera sa impiyerno, pupunta doon ang negosyante (If there's money to be made in hell, they'll go there)," he said.
Oh, don't worry, Mr. Favila, that's where we're headed already. Thanks in no small part to your boss.
