Ping: Mga Gahaman sa Pork Barrel, Kayang Purgahin ng Presidente

veto

Puwedeng maawat ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa pamamagitan ng veto power ang pagkalulong at pagkagahaman ng karamihan sa mga kongresista at ilang senador sa pork barrel.

Ito ang nakikitang solusyon ni Senador Panfilo Lacson upang malinis at matanggal sa loob ng 2019 national budget ang pork barrel na pilit na isinisingit ng marami sa kanyang kasamahan sa lehislatura na tila walang kabusugan.

Ayon kay Lacson, higit pa sa sapat ang veto power ng Pangulo upang matanggal ang mga personal amendments sa pambansang badyet na bunga ng pagsisingit, hindi lamang ng mga kongresista kunding maging ng ilan sa kanyang mga kasamahan sa Senado.

“Mr. President, you have displayed your strong political will on several occasions. This time, use your line-item veto power over the 2019 appropriations measure by removing all the ‘pork’ inserted by lawmakers who are incorrigibly insatiable and simply ‘beyond redemption,’” banggit ni Lacson sa kanyang Twitter account.

Vetoing the “pork” in the P3.7-trillion budget for 2019 may further affirm President Rodrigo Duterte’s much-touted strong political will, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Tuesday.

In a post on his Twitter account, Lacson said the President can expunge the pork from the budget using his line-item veto power.

“Mr. President, you have displayed your strong political will on several occasions. This time, use your line-item veto power over the 2019 appropriations measure by removing all the ‘pork’ inserted by lawmakers who are incorrigibly insatiable and simply ‘beyond redemption,’” he said.
