The income restrictions were removed years ago so that all Filipinos could take advantage of the program. Sad state when those can afford to pay full price still insist on the discounts that many poor need. You are correct, it was never intended for foreigners, but I knew some, that were well off and still had the cards and used them. They got them from "friends" in the Mayor's office even though they were not authorized to issue them. Corruption knows no Nationality.
