The Freedom from Debt Coalition staged the “Pitong Wika ng Masa: Pasyon ng Mamamayan” this morning to criticize the Aquino administration for its inept performance in addressing the needs of the Filipino people during the president’s six-year reign.
“During his term, PNoy deliberately betrayed the public in favor of corporate and political interests,” Sammy Gamboa, FDC Secretary-General said.
Early this year, President Aquino III vetoed the proposed SSS pension hike that would have granted P2,000 across-the board increase in monthly pension. In addition, he also rejected the proposed income tax cuts last September 2015, citing an estimated P30-billion in loss of revenue.
