P-Noy administration compared to Cookie Monster by Gabriela party-list Rep. Luz Ilagan
Only one of them is cute.
RG Cruz of ABS-CBN News reports that Gabriela party-list Rep. Luz Ilagan "has described the Aquino administration as a ’Pork Barrel Monster,’ much like Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster." She had quipped, "If there’s a Cookie Monster who eats cookies, Malacañang has become a Pork Barrel Monster, it refuses to let go of its own pork barrel."
The report noted: "The Makabayan bloc on Monday said it is now studying President Aquino’s impeachment over the Dibusrement Acceleration Program (DAP), which they slammed as illegal and unconstitutional. Meanwhile, ACT Teachers Party-list Rep. Antonio Tinio said the President must be held accountable for the DAP. He said a Supreme Court declaration of the DAP as unconstitutional may hasten things."
According to the report, "at least four petitions are pending before the high court assailing the constitutionality of the DAP, which was where the administration sourced funds allegedly given to some lawmakers after the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona."
