Quotes

"I am aware that investors in the energy sector are worried about these measures distorting the market, but let me assure you: government intervention is meant only to address the shortage. The sole goal of this initiative is to make sure our economy does not lose its momentum in the event of an energy shortage" Aquino said
In a text message, Belmonte said: "It was never funded from DAP because we never got money from DBM. They withheld P215m from our budget which we could have converted to savings. We just rounded off our request to 250m but never got any money including the 215M withheld from us."
"Mga kasama ko sa Kongreso, huwag nating payagan ang bago at maling depinisyon ng savings. Kung papayag tayo sa gusto ng pangulo, mawawalang saysay ang power of the purse ng Kongreso, lumuhod na lang tayo sa bagong diktador sa badyet, si President Benigno S Aquino" Colmenares said
"We are resolved to have a strong oversight committee to look into the budget" he said
