Lawyer slams Sen. Aquino, Hontiveros for credit grabbing on newly approved bills

After President Rodrigo Duterte signed the bill on free tuition fee, it became a talk of the country on who should people be grateful of.




Social media blogger and lawyer, Bruce Rivera slammed two Liberal Party Senators in the person of Bam Aquino and Risa Hontiveros for praising themselves for the credit of the newly approved bills which are the free tertiary education and no hospital deposit.

In his social media account on Facebook, Rivera said it is an attitude of the LP senators to get the credit for something good while denying the things that could harm their reputations.

According to Rivera, one of the 'dilawans' said it should be Aquino and Hontiveros to get the praises instead of President Rodrigo Duterte since these two senators are the main sponsors of the two approved bills.

"Eto ang sagot ko sa kanila: Eh di ibigay sa kanila ang papuri. Ilagay natin sila sa pedestal at sambahin. Koronahan natin ng mga diamante at hiyas. Ipagbunyi sa kalangitan ang kadakilaan ng kanilang puso. Pero hindi yan ang dahilan bakit kami masaya," as read in Rivera's post.

The staunch supporter of Duterte emphasized no matter who sponsored the said bill, it will not be passed without their colleagues who supported them.

"Kahit sino mang demonyo ang principal sponsor ng isang batas, hindi maipapasa yan kung hindi tumulong ang ibang senador na maipasa. Kung ganid ang ating pangulo sa kapangyarihan at katanyagan, madali niyang gawan ng paraan na hindi isang LP senator ang magiging principal sponsor ng isang importanteng batas. Pwedeng sa House mangagaling ang batas o di kaya pwede niyang kausapin ang mga senador na kaalyado nito na hwag muna ipasa ang batas at hintaying na may ibang version ang maipasa na hindi pangalan ni Bam o Risa ang nakalagay. Gawain kaya ng LP yan. Dati, kung hindi ka miyembro ng majority, swerte na kung naipasa sa first reading ang batas mo kahit gaano man ito kagaling. Hindi nila hahayaan na magpapogi ang iba. Sila lang," he added.


On the other hand, he also stressed that Duterte doesn't bearthe same mentality they have. He only gives his focus on how to help people and not on the credit to win.

"Hindi namin inaalis kina Bam at Risa na angkinin ang tagumpay kasi trabaho nila yan at ginawa nila ng tama. Pero sana naman ay hwag niyo ding ipagkait sa amin ang ipagbunyi ang ating Pangulo dahil hindi siya naging ganid sa kapangyarihan at pinili niyang pirmahan agad ang mga batas na nakakabuti sa karamihan ng mamayang Pilipino kahit gawa pa ito ng mga dilawan. May pinuno po tayong totoong namumuno. Yun po ang ipinagbubunyi namin," Brce concluded.
