Manila, Philippines - There is no stopping Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson from his campaign to remove pork barrel funds allegedly inserted in the proposed 2020 national budget.
Sen. Lacson posted in his Twitter, declaring that he was going all-in on the pork battle despite getting attack from several members of the lower house.

“Dep Spkr LRay Villafuerte, Party-list Rep Mike Defensor, and other House members can take turns in maligning me while defending their pork but I’m still going all in. Patay kung patay! The President’s P95B veto early this year is inspiring. It’s the people’s money after all,” Sen. Lacson twitted.

But despite the agreed "ceasefire on the word war" between some members of the Senate and the House over the issue, Lacson will continue scrutinizing the 2020 national budget until pork barrel has been removed.

"First of all, a ceasefire or not, I cannot stop exposing any form of abuse involving the national budget," Lacson said in a statement Friday.

Lacson earlier revealed that some congressmen would supposedly get P700 million in allocations under the proposed P4.1-trillion budget for 2020.

These made some members of the House offended by Lacson’s statement and demanded an apology from the senator.

Among them were Capiz Rep. Fred Castro, House Minority Leader Bienvenido Abante Jr., and Anak Kalusugan Party-list Rep. Mike Defensor.

  1. I dont like Lacson. But on this one I surely agreed with him. Eto na naman kasi ang mga sugapang magnanakaw mandarambong na mga kongreskotong gustong magpalusot ng pork barrel. Na naman. Ayaw magsitigil kung ano anong palusot pa ang gawa. Magnanakaw talaga.
