Danilo Suarez: Ping Lacson doesn’t understand problems of House lawmakers

Dec 7, 2018 @ 10:47

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez said the proposed P3.757-trillion budget for 2019 does not have “pork barrel.”

The Quezon politiko made the remark in reaction to Senator Panfilo Lacson’s accusation that the proposed budget was full of discretionary funds for legislators.

Lacson revealed that Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s district in Pampanga received P2.4 billion in discretionary funds.

But Suarez said Lacson’s interpretation of the P2.4-billion amount was wrong.

“I’m sorry to say pero mukhang mali ‘yong interpretation ni Ping. ‘Di nag-congressman si Ping. Baka ‘di niya naiintidihan ‘yong problema ng may constituency,” he explained.
