Sen. Bam: We will not allow railroading, bastardization of Constitution

Senator Bam Aquino asserted that he and fellow senators will not allow the railroading and bastardization of the process to change the 1987 Constitution. 
“I doubt that any senator, opposition or administration, will allow a bastardization of the Constitutionally-mandated process,” Sen. Bam stressed. 
Sen. Bam made his pronouncement amid reports that the joint session for the State of the Nation Address might be used to convene a constituent assembly that will revise the 1987 Charter. 
According to Sen. Bam, the Senate agreed that it will not allow any change in the Charter to be railroaded. 
Instead of pushing for Charter change, Sen. Bam urged the government to focus on addressing the high prices of goods due to the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law. 
“Nakakahiya naman sa taumbayan na habang nalulunod sila sa taas presyo ay Cha Cha at No-El ang pinag-uusapan ng gobyerno,” said Sen. Bam, one of four senators who voted against the ratification of the government’s tax reform program. 
“Hanapan na lang natin ng solusyon ang tumitinding pagtaas ng presyo, imbis na pilitin ang Cha-Cha,” added Sen. Bam. 
Sen. Bam also called on the government to put premium on the welfare of Filipinos, and not on the personal interest of politicians.
