🎥📷 On increasing the base pay of uniformed service personnel in government | Nov. 29, 2017

In an interview with media, Sen. Lacson answers questions on:
– pay hike for uniformed personnel
– 2018 budget bill
– tax reform


Quotes from the interview…

On increasing base pay of uniformed personnel…
“Definite sa base pay, military, police, all uniformed personnel, definite na yan. No-brainer na yan.”

... and higher pay for retirees:
“Ang issue na pinaguusapan, makikinabang di ba ang mga retired sa increase. Sa akin ang position ko they should also reap the benefits of this law as passed.”

On tax reform:
“If we want to be pro-poor, not necessarily anti-rich, i-tax mo naman ang dapat i-tax. Kung hindi mo ita-tax ang kaya magbayad ng tax, siyempre tatamaan mo mahihirap.”
