Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is known to be a straightforward person and he really speak his mind with clear facts. He’s the kind of senator that will fight for the welfare of the Filipino people. However, he is not alone in this quest to urge the government to do something to the rising electricity consumption. Other senators like Senator Allan Cayetano also backed up his plea.

Subsidize power rates, Palace pressed

By: Macon Ramos-Araneta

SENATOR Antonio Trillanes IV on Sunday demanded that President Benigno Aquino III pressure the government to subsidize the coming increase in the cost of electricity instead of burdening the consuming public.

“Let us apply political pressure,” Trillanes, a presidential ally, told DZBB radio.

“Because if we are just talking here about P10 billion, instead of passing [the burden] to the public you [Aquino should] take charge, since this was because of your fault.

It is sad if the President is not an economist. He cannot understand why his predecessor subsidized the LRT/MRT fares, gasoline and power rates. He even criticized the former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo that she was running these facilities at a lost. Little did he know that it was a strategy to keep the economy flowing during difficult times. This is to enable or motivate people to continue working or doing business when the going gets tough. He is running government services like businesses – and robbed the people of huge portions of their earnings through compulsory income taxes to invest for these businesses and other authority-buying expenses! He better seek for better consultants! What about PGMA as Presidential Consultant for the Economy?
