The Media Block on BBM
If you don’t know about the wisdom of BBM on the laws, chances are, that you are a victim of a media block. As people already know, the biased media usually include him in the news only if it is against him or his family. Otherwise, his good deeds would remain unannounced but thanks to social media.
Taxation on the Cigarette and Alcohol Industry
BBM artipulates Senator Franklin Drilon’s sharing proposal which is 60-40 for tobacco alcohol based on history. This is allegedly based on the consensus of a caucus that Bongbong Marcos disputed. Drilon cited health reasons. But Marcos insists that it’s 40% high and never reached 60%. He stresses that job loss is detrimental if these industries won’t survive.
Do not treat me like a Muslim but treat me like a Filipino, BBM said. This should be the basis of the Bangsamoro law. Marcos rejected the original bill, saying it was unconstitutional. He made good on his promise to submit a substitute version of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) in 2015. Overall, he’s into job creations by investing in the economy. Teach them how to fish and they eat for a lifetime, he added.
