According to an article that was published by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Senator Bam Aquino has told the reporters that "apart from his intensified campaign against illegal drugs, President Rodrigo Duterte should also lay down a clear plan on how he will address the country's other pressing problems, such as employment, education, and poverty reduction, in his first State of the Nation Address (Sona) on July 25."
The article however was gone viral and has been shared more than 12,000 times on Facebook and is still counting since it was published on July 21, 2016. But being popular or viral doesn't mean that the netizens take sides with the Senator on this issue.
Take the case of Atty. Bruce Rivera who wrote a letter just to slam down Senator Bam Aquino:
Teka, bakit ngayon ka lang nagsalita. Di ba dati ka pang Senador? Yung endo, bakit di mo file nung Presidente pa yung pinsan mo? Sana mas mabilis naipasa yan kung may pirma mo.
And address other issues? Gumawa kayo ng batas para may issues na iaddress ang executive na taga-implement lang. Gaya ng amendment to the HIV Prevention Law, a real LGBT recognition law that will not just prevent discrimination but recognize LGBT as a class/kind of person, expand the dual citizenship law to include those who are born to Filipino mothers who failed to chose Filipino citizenship to be allowed to acquire it again and most of all, modernize our Revised Penal Code, Civil Code, and Family Code kasi outdated na masyado.
If senate will be able to do that, then President Duterte will have issues to address and laws to implement, But kung walang output ang legislative kasi pure investigation na lang, anong mangyayari sa Pilipinas kung ang mga batas na ginagamit natin ay hindi na effective.
Mahirap sabihin ng lumpo ang bulag na tumingin siya kung siya naman mismo ay hindi din nakakalakad.
