Bayan Muna to admin eco managers: Try living on a P10k monthly budget

Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate lambasted the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) for stating that P10,000 is enough for the monthly budget of a family of 5 to live decently.

“You are outrageously and shamelessly out of touch from reality,” Rep. Zarate said.

The progressive solon also hit the economic managers of the Duterte administration — Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Sec. Benjamin Diokno, Department of Finance (DOF) Sec. Carlos Dominguez and Socioeconomic planning Sec. Ernesto Pernia — for “brazenly downplaying the harsh effects of the TRAIN law on the prices of goods and services.”

“Sila kaya ang mabuhay na sampung libo lang ang budget para sa kanilang pamilya. Nasubukan na ba nila ito?Bumaba muna kayo sa inyong kinatuntungang matayog na pedestal at subukan munang pagkasyahin ang P10,000.00 ng kahit anim na buwan tapos saka kayo magsalita,” said the progressive solon

“Ang hirap kasi ay puro sila projection at plano sa NEDA, DOF at DBM pero hindi naman sila ang nakakaranas ng kahirapan na idinulot ng ipinilit nilang TRAIN law. Tapos kapag nagreklamo ang mga tao sasabihin nilang ‘crybaby’,” added the Davao-based solon.

“With inflation for May at an all time high of 4.6% these economic managers should be fired for adding a hefty burden on millions of Filipinos,” ended Rep.Zarate. (PR)
