Tama si Duterte! PH is just fine without begging for US aid says Koko Pimentel


Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III agreed with President Rodrigo Duterte that the government should not go down on its knees and beg the United States not to cut off its aid to the Philippines.
“We can survive but actually our attitude should be, we must survive. Ang pagpaplano ng buhay ng bansa, dapat hindi naka-plano yan na merong MCC na nagbibigay o nagpapautang sa atin. Dapat even without MCC,” he said.
“Siguro sayang na may $430M na pwede natin ma access. Pero kung yung gustong magpahiram o magpautang eh ang daming satsat, ang dami- daming conditions, eh di wala na tayong meeting of the minds. Wala na tayong interest dun. Okay na po yun (na hindi natuloy),” he said.
“Parang nasa menu lang yan na hindi mo na lang pinili. Tanungin natin mga kababayan natin, ano ba ang proyekto ng MCC na alam nila at naramdaman nila ang benepisyo sa kanilang buhay? Tingnan natin ilan ang nakakasagot nyan? Hindi ganun kalaki ang impact sa buhay natin kaya ‘wag na natin masyadong gawing issue yan. Hindi ganyan kahalaga yan,” Pimentel, a staunch ally of President Duterte.
The Senate chief said government leaders should not always be dependent on the financial assistance of other countries.
“Dapat kaya nating tumayo sa sarili nating mga paa,” he said.
