What about the government agencies involved in the reported P10 Billion pork barrel scam? Aside from the fake NGOs, there were also genuine government agencies and officials involved.
We're uploading the full speech in a bit!
Aquino: Matapos ang trahedya, isa na siguro sa pinakamahirap na tungkuling ginampanan ko ang paghahatid ng balita kina Leni.
Aquino: Maglingkod sa bansa dahil sa inyo. Hindi nag-iisa ang mukha ng pagbabago
Aquino: Nang unang iminungkahi ang Pantawid Pamilya, nariyan ang tanong: Paanong maaabot ang kailangan nitong epekto; nasaan ang pondo para masaklaw ang lahat ng maralitang Pilipino?
Aquino: May puwang pa ba para sa mga agam-agam? Ngayon pa bang natutupad na ang mga dating ni hindi natin magawang pangarapin.
After the speech, we'll have a discussion about the SONA and the President's Legislative Agenda with Tanya Hamada and Sixdon Macasaet. Join us in the conversation!
Aquino: Sinabi po sa akin dati: Noynoy, simulan mo lang. Sinimulan nga po natin, at ngayon, kitang-kita na ang layo ng ating narating.
Ngayon, Pilipino, ituloy natin ang pagkakapit-bisig, sabay nating arugain, pabilisin, at palawakin ang transpormasyon ng lipunan. Ako po si Noynoy Aquino; ipinagmamalaki ko sa buong mundo: Pilipino ako.
Napakasarap maging Pilipino sa panahong ito.
Where is citizen power needed? -Defining 'Inclusive Growth' and supporting PNoy's fighting stance on anti-corruption in all agencies.FOI na!
Join us after the SONA speech to discuss the President's legislative agenda with INCITEGov's Tanya Hamada and CODE-NGO's Dodo Macasaet. We will be joined also by Prof. Marivic Raquiza of the UP National College of Public Adminstration (UP-NCPAG)
We'll be uploading the video of the speech in a bit. Stay where you are! We have more for you here on Rappler.
The Conditional Cash Transfer program will get renewed funding in 2014. What are your thoughts on the effectivity of the program and the Aquino administration's expansion of the program?
Education is a top priority of any administration. The Aquino administration seems focused on ending the classroom and teacher shortage by 2016 or earlier. What else must President Aquino do to improve our country's education system?
Agriculture and land reform go hand in hand in reducing social inequality as well as in securing our food supply for the future. Share your ideas on the President's agenda to increase productivity and look after the welfare of farmers.
The Aquino administration likes to highlight the economic gains made in just 3 years. Are we truly on the way to sustainable growth or are we just as vulnerable today as we were during the credit and financial crises?
The current's health care system, although functioning, is still sorely lacking in terms of delivery and ease of access for the poor. Given its complexity as an issue, what should PNoy focus on?
The President sent a clear message to erring agencies, corruption and poor performance will not be tolerated under his watch. But can he truly stir good governance reforms through to completion before his term ends?
And that's the President's SONA 2013. So, Tanya and Sixdon, what are your quick thoughts?
Before we go, I'd like to ask Tanya and Dodo to say some final words on this year's SONA and what we - the media and civil society - need to watch out for in the coming months, particularly with the 2014 budget and the last 3 years of the PNoy administration?
Final words on Rappler Blog.. I appreciated linked specifics on poverty alleviation-educ-health. So much more to do on Inclusive Development
