ThinkingPinoy explained why we should thank Bam and at the same time why we should not thank the senator for the free tuition law.
According to ThinkingPinoy, Sen. Bam Aquino had the balls to file the Free Tuition Bill only because he knows he won’t encounter opposition from his LP cohorts and because it won’t be PNoy who will sign the law who always worried about where to get the money to finance it.
The veteran blogger also explained how the Free Tuition Law became successful and the reasons why it was signed by Pres. Duterte because it’s the President’s allies in both houses of Congress that approved the bill.
Here’s the Complete Explanation of ThinkingPinoy:
SHOULD WE THANK BAM FOR FREE TUITION?
Yes and no.
Bam Aquino had the balls to file the Free Tuition Bill only because he knows he won’t encounter opposition from his LP cohorts. Filing this in the previous congress would’ve just incurred the Aquino Era Malacanang’s wrath, a Malacanang that was so busy with maximizing savings to feed its DAP machine, the same DAP machine that the Pnoy regime used to bribe rival politicians to submission.
In short, this Ninoy Cosplayer had the guts to file this in this Congress because it won’t be Pnoy who’ll worry about where to get the money to finance it.
Let me give you a quick rundown of how the bill was made into law.
1. Who authored the Free Tuition Bill? Bam, I’ll give him that.
2. Who dictates what gets prioritized in the Senate/Lower House Calendars? Duterte’s allies.
3. Who provided the necessary numbers to pass the bill in the Senate? Duterte’s allies.
4. Who provided the necessary numbers to pass the bill in the Lower House? Duterte’s allies.
5. Who allowed the bill to get past plenary? Duterte’s allies.
6. Who decided against vetoing the bill? Duterte.
A free tuition bill does not require a genius to write it. Yes, Bam wrote the bill, but it was everything else that happened afterwards that actually matters.
Oo, si Bam ang ama (o ina ) ng bata, pero si Duterte ang nagpalaki, nagpakain, nagpatapos.
My point? Fine, I’ll give Bam credit for authoring the bill, but for its actual passage, I won’t give him more credit than he deserves.
OH, AND DID I SAY THAT IT WAS PGMA, WHILE SHE WAS STILL A LEGISLATOR, WHO FILED A FREE TUITION BILL FIRST?
Ang tawag diyan, Inday Bam, ay bandwagoning.
Yung tipong alam mo nang llamado ang Golden State Warriors dahil sa pagpasok ni Kevin Durant, tapos kunwari, biglang DubNation ka na.
Wag ganun, Bam. Wag ganun.
