Bam Aquino heavily criticized by netizens, asks Pres. Duterte to address other issues other than drugs

Working silently in the background during the Pnoy administration, a senator wants to assume the role as the leading voice of the opposition by taking the proverbial bull by the horn.

The bull is no less than President Rodrigo Duterte and the upstart senator is Senator Bam Aquino, cousin of the former President.

Lately, Senator Bam Aquino told Pres. Duterte to address other issues aside from drugs like poverty reduction, education and unemployment.

This cannot be said when President Benigno Aquino bungled in addressing the issues confronting his administration one after the other.

In an article published by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Senator Bam Aquino told reporters that “apart from his intensified campaign against illegal drugs, President Rodrigo Duterte should also lay down a clear plan on how he will address the country’s other pressing problems, such as employment, education and poverty reduction, in his first State of the Nation Address (Sona) on July 25.”

President Duterte can discuss important topics that matter to the lives of Filipinos like education, employment and poverty reduction.

The PDI article starring Senator Bam Aquino has gone viral and has been shared more than 12,000 times on Facebook and counting since it was published on July 21, 2016.

However, being popular does not mean that the netizens take sides with Senator Aquino on this issue.

Take the case of Atty. Bruce Rivera, who wrote an impassioned letter slamming Senator Bam Aquino on a Facebook post that reads:

Dear Bam,

Teka, bakit ngayon ka lang nagsalita. Di ba dati ka pang Senador? Yung endo, bakit di mo file nung Presidente pa yung pinsan mo? Sana mas mabilis naipasa yan kung may pirma mo.

And address other issues? Gumawa kayo ng batas para may issues na iaddress ang executive na taga-implement lang. Gaya ng amendment to the HIV Prevention Law, a real LGBT recognition law that will not just prevent discrimination but recognize LGBT as a class/kind of person, expand the dual citizenship law to include those who are born to Filipino mothers who failed to chose Filipino citizenship to be allowed to acquire it again and most of all, modernize our Revised Penal Code, Civil Code and Family Code kasi outdated na masyado.

If Senate will be able to do that, then President Duterte will have issues to address and laws to implement. But kung walang output ang legislative kasi puro investigation na lang, anong mangyayari sa Pilipinas kung ang mga batas na ginagamit natin ay hindi na effective.

Mahirap sabihin ng lumpo ang bulag na tumingin siya kung siya naman ay hindi din nakakalakad.

Another netizen lambasts the senator on a Facebook post that reads:

To Bam “Walang Kwentang Senador” Aquino na campaign manager ng Made-in-China na VP:

Sa madaling salita Bam kasabwat ka rin. Kasabwat ka sa dayaan noong eleksyon. Kasabwat ka sa corruption at hindi malayong kasabwat ka sa drug trade! Lahat naman yata kayong mga dilawan nag dadrugs eh! Address other issues kamo? Yung Pinsan mong kasing adik mo rin hindi mo nga binigyan dati ng ganitong klaseng advice na mas kailangan nya!!! Bakit hindi ka nagbigay ng advice na “Insan, address other issues besides YOURSELF naman”. Bobosenator Bam Aquino, FYI, ang droga ang pinaka malaking issue ng Pilipinas na mas lumala noong naging presidente ang inutil mong pinsan na kseng inutil mo rin!
