[VIDEO]: The Senators’ Reactions to PBBM’s first SONA
The Senators’ Reactions
Many senators if not all are happy about President Bongbong Marcos’ first SONA. It was comprehensive, said Senator Win Gatchalian. Senator Bong Go is happy about the emphasis on additional hospitals. While Senator Sonny Angara is all praises for the president’s plan from agriculture to education.
The senators can’t be complete without the opposition. But this time, the one surviving anti-Marcos is seen to oppose for the sake of opposing. Not anymore a check and balance kind of thing. Senator Risa Hontiveros said that she would like to hear more about anti-corruption practices. Despite the detailed speech of the Filipino leader, there are things that can be left out.
All is Well
However, topics like assets or specifically gold deposits can find another time. The 20 pesos per kilo f rice promise always has an update on local news. Senator Migz Zubiri calls it amazing. Senator Nancy Binay also thinks it’s inspiring. Senator Lito Lapid likes face-to-face classes. Senator JV Ejercito is excited about his railway system advocacy. Senators Jinggoy Estrada, and Joel Villanueva can clearly follow PBBM’s interntions for the nation.
