NEWS: Cong. Anton says SONA bares a pro-poor GMA

july 29

Davao del Norte 2nd District Congressman Anton Lagdameo said the State of the Nation Address rendered by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo yesterday no less than bared a pro-poor President.

Asked through text about his reaction to the SONA, Cong. Lagdameo replied that it clearly cast a President “who is working hard to help alleviate hardship of the majority who are hungry and suffering from high costs. Her programs are pro-poor.”

He said that the “President has been addressing problems that started before her term and she is trying to make it easier for the next administration. She is pursuing an agenda which is unpopular but which will benefit everyone in the long run.”

“We are currently facing a crisis which was triggered by global factors and not by her administration. That is why I am very supportive of her programs because I believe that these programs lay down the economic fundamentals that will really benefit our nation as a whole and at the same time answer the immediate problems of our people,” replied Cong. Anton. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
