In reaction to the anti-tambay policy of the Duterte government, Senator Bam Aquino was overheard quipping, “Mahirap na naman ang itinatarget.”
The poor are being targeted.
Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles said she is not surprised why Senator Bam Aquino made such statement.
Angeles, playing the spoiler’s role, exposed Senator Bam Aquino’s ulterior motives in trying to make it appear that PRRD and this administration is anti-poor.
Ask me why? Bam wants the poor to hate Duterte because the poor comprises the biggest chunk among the President’s supporters. If that happens, knock on wood, Duterte is ripe for the picking via popular uprising. Remember how Cory came to power? Di ba Bam?
Ano ang point ni Bam? Gusto nyang ipalabas na anti-poor si PRRD at ang administrasyong ito. Gusto nyang ipalabas ito dahil syempre, ito ang biggest base of supporters ng gobyerno. Kung may makumbinsi si Bam na tutoo itong sinasabi nya (kahit hindi) bababa uli ang popularity ng pangulo at — malay nyo — baka matuloy ang ambisyon ni Leni na maka upo sya by — malay nyo uli — popular uprising, gaya ni Cory.
In fairness to Bam, he was right, partially says Angeles.
Duterte is targeting the poor, that is why the Duterte administration provides free tertiary education at tertiary education subsidies.
PRRD has also defied the free market policies of economic team and listened to NFA Admin instead, who favored importing cheap and affordable rice to the poor.
But wait. Tutoo ba ito?
Tutoong parating tinatarget ng pangulo ang mahihirap. Kaya nga may free tertiary education at fertiary education subsidies. Kaya nga binalewala nya yung free market policies ng economic team nya at sumangayon sa NFA Admin na mag import ng murang bigas para sa mahihirap. Kaya nga nung una pinagbigyan nya ang Kadamay, kasi nga dukhang dukha daw sila. Kaya nga kinukulit ang pag-ayos ng mga tren, LRT at MRT.
Angeles said, a comfortable life is for all. This is even more palpable among the middle class and down to the poorest of the poor.
#AComfortableLifeForAll is for ALL, pero pinakaramdam naming mga middle class at pababa.
Angeles remarked that Sen Bam Aquino must have missed his cousin Noy’s days when the rich became even richer.
Palibhasa, na-miss siguro ni Sen. Aquino yung panahon ng pinsan nya, nung mas yumaman ang mga mayayaman na.
