P1.8-trillion national budget for 2012 signed

By

BIG BUDGET President Aquino talks with Vice President Jejomar Binay as Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile looks on during Thursday’s signing of the 2012 General Appropriations Act in Malacañang. EDWIN BACASMAS

Amid criticism from impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona that he was neglecting the economy and the poor, President Benigno Aquino III on Thursday signed the P1.816-trillion national budget for 2012, saying he had not forgotten his priorities while his administration was going after those who had failed the people.

The national budget is 10.4 percent bigger than the P1.645-trillion budget for this year.

Shortly after signing into law the 2012 national budget, Mr. Aquino said the appropriations were “results-focused” and prioritized the administration’s “social contract with the Filipino people.”

He said the budget would address the people’s basic needs from food and education to health.

The budget, for instance, will set aside P39.5 billion for the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program for three million of the poorest households in the country, the President said. The P21.3 billion allocated for the program this year covers 2.3 million poor families.

The program provides poor families a monthly cash allowance of up to P1,400 (P500 per household and P300 per child for up to three children) in exchange for ensuring that children aged 6 to 14 attend school and avail themselves of vaccination and other medical benefits.

Poor people, who are at least 75 years old, will get P500 a month under the Social Pension for Indigent Senior Filipino Citizens, which has been allotted P1.2 billion. Close to 200,000 people are expected to benefit from the program.

Swift approval

The President thanked lawmakers for their swift approval of the national budget, noting that this was the first budget measure that was signed into law very early since the restoration of democracy in the country in 1986.

“Indeed, this is a truly historic day,” he said in a speech he delivered after the budget signing witnessed by lawmakers led by Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr.

Mr. Aquino assured the public that “every peso” to be spent by the administration next year would provide “concrete and measurable results that would benefit the poor.”

He said that while his administration was going after those who governed wrongly and aligned with the corrupt, he had not forgotten his priorities.

“Concurrent (with this fight), this budget symbolizes the daily and bigger aspect of justice; that we ensure that no Filipino will be left behind; that each Filipino will be able to be given the chance to be able to achieve their desires; and that the system will not be only for those who have power but will also take care of those in the lower ends,” Mr. Aquino said.

He was apparently reacting to Corona’s call for the President to pursue economic reforms and help the poor instead of pressing the charges against the Chief Justice.

Corona is set to stand trial in the Senate in January after the House of Representatives impeached him on Monday. He is accused of favoring former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who is under hospital arrest on charges of election sabotage, in a number of high court rulings.

Mr. Aquino noted that over 30 percent or P568.6 billion of next year’s budget would go to social services.

Education

He also said that he had increased allocations for basic education, with the Department of Education getting P238.8 billion, “the biggest budget of all departments.”

Through this budget, the government will hire 13,000 new teachers, build and rehabilitate more than 43,000 classrooms, and provide quality education to the poor youth, the President said.

“And like last year since I assumed office, funds for our state colleges and universities have increased,” he said.

Health insurance subsidy

The Department of Health will get P44.4 billion.

Mr. Aquino said the amount would provide health insurance subsidy to 5.2 million poor people; employ an additional 13,000 doctors, nurses and midwives in the countryside; build birthing facilities in rural areas; and offer other health services.

To critics who blasted his administration for its slow spending, the President said big and fast spending would be of no use if the money would not go to its intended purpose.

“In the road to the right path, the projects are of high quality and will not go to corruption. These will benefit the people,” he said.

Mr. Aquino said he expected at least P140 billion of infrastructure projects to be implemented starting next month to help shore up the economy given the  economic slowdown abroad.

He said the infrastructure project would “grow the economy and create jobs.”

“We have invested almost P255.2 billion, which is 33 percent more compared to this year, for infrastructure and capital outlays—roads and bridges, airports, ports, irrigation systems and other agrarian infrastructure, flood- and landslide-control projects and others,” the President said.

Rice production

Mr. Aquino also said that next year’s budget would “focus on our desire that rice to be cooked in the Philippines will be planted, harvested and sold here” as this would also help provide livelihood to the poor farmers in the countryside.

He said the Department of Agriculture’s P53.3 billion for next year was more than 50 percent bigger than the present budget in order to achieve a rice production of 18.57 million metric tons for 2012.

“What’s good here is that the (rice) funds would remain here in the Philippines to further boost the economy instead of the funds going to other countries and enrich them,” he said.

Carrot and stick

Mr. Aquino said he had directed the Cabinet economic development cluster to come up with a system which would reward agencies able to implement their programs and projects, and penalize those that squander funds.

“I would like to stress that it’s not the swiftness of the spending that we are measuring but the actual results of spending; from the kilometers of road that need to be paved to the quality of livelihood of  the communities,” he said.

    President Aquino said that the government will release P14 billion in January for infrastructure projects.
    Tired of this P’ABNoy he should have done pump-priming the economy on forecast or signs of economic slow-down. Indeed P’ABNoy is only popular to the masses but not to the technocrats and the business sector. Foreign funders has downgraded the country’s economic growth next year that may result to anemic inflow of capital….ABNoy is way-way off from reality… popular indeed but no brain. 

    ABNoy just resign because life of the Filipino people will be harder next year due to your incompetency. Dapat ka nga talagang alagaan ni Monching ayon sa bilin nang iyong tatay nang nasa Fort Boni pa siya dahil mahina kang ma ka gets.

    Dati sinabi nila noong pagkaupo nila 2010, inubos na daw ni GMA ang budget July pa lang. Ang reason ng budget secretary ni GMA is na front-load na ang budget to boost the economy..di tanggap ng kampo ni penoy ang reason na to..but look at now,ganun din pala ang strategy nila- frontloading the budget..student counsil talaga.

    The payoff is coming!  With the case against Corona coming up in January, the timing of the signing of the budget as well as the proding to start the biddings for contracts, is nothing more than just appropriate!  Happy days are here, for the budget must be expended swftly, as declared by the president!  For infrastructure projects, whatever that means!  Would that help the poor eat two square meals a day, create jobs, decrease rising prices of prime commodities, gasoline, etc.  or not is yet to be seen.

    The 1.8T Philippine Budget for 2012 includes the billions for DSWD’s Pantawid? Hahaha! 

    The following news item of the Philippine Star contains different story on the matter. I would like to ask if PDI had intentionally omitted the PEACe bonds issue where Soliman may have a hand on the P 1.4 Billion commission of Code-NGO where she was a former head.  I think PNoy should direct a full investigation on this. Matuwid na Daan na tayo.

    DSWD chief bypassed by CA By Helen Flores (The Philippine Star) Updated December 15, 2011 12:00 AM 

    MANILA, Philippines – Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman yesterday denied anew her alleged involvement in the controversial Poverty Eradication and Alleviation Certificates (PEACe) bonds, even as the Commission on Appointments (CA) bypassed her appointment.Other Cabinet members bypassed by the CA were Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, Environment Secretary Ramon Paje and Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.The appointment of Commission on Elections Commissioner Christian Robert Lim, meanwhile, was confirmed at the CA in a separate hearing yesterday.Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago questioned Soliman’s involvement in the Caucus of Non-government Organizations (Code-NGO), a private entity, which supposedly earned a P1.4-billion commission from the flotation of the P10-billion PEACe bonds.Soliman said the issues on the PEACe bonds have been properly answered in other fora.“This is part of the process… I’m willing to subject myself to the process,” Soliman said.Soliman is a former head of Code-NGO. She was replaced by Marissa Camacho-Reyes, sister of former Finance Secretary Jose Camacho.Soliman denied any involvement in the transaction, saying she was no longer the head of Code-NGO when the transaction happened. She joined the Arroyo administration as social welfare secretary in 2001 but resigned in 2005.But Defensor-Santiago said Soliman’s husband, lawyer Hector Soliman, was once the corporate secretary and one of the members of the board of directors of the Peace and Equity Foundation (PEF).

Aquino´s Administration must be wise enough in curving which businesses in our country will boom for the next year para medyo competitive ang dating.First,in making such infrastracture,i advise our President to give priority in:

    1) Upgrading our National/Municipal road in it´s international standards,complete with “Road Signs” and courtesy….Malaking bagay ang nagagawa n bansa ng kumpleto sa signs ang mga kalsada.It will discipline people(rich or poor)because roads are the only passage that cross both rich and poor,Young and Adult etc. I observed this already in countries who´s people obeyed road signs.Kapag walang sign at bastos at di marunong sumunod sa alituntunin ang mga tao,kahit sa sarili nyang pamamahay eh hindi nya maipapakita ang disiplina sa pamilya.

    2) Constructions of our Drainage…Our country is a tropical country that ALWAYS encounter typhoons,specially sa mga urban areas,kung di magiging maayos ang drainage natin.Babalik ang baha,pagkatapos magiging center ang Schools…Sinong mapeperwisyo?–Mga bata na mawawalan ng Paaralan!…Tandaan po natin.”Kapag may Baha,Laging kakabit ang Sakit”….Eto po eh kahit saang bansa mangyari…Magkaka-Dengue na naman due to stagnant water…Malaria,Leptospirosis,Foot and Mouth desease atbp….Sinong gagastos?…Gobyerno!

    3) Aside from population explosion,we have also “Transportation Explosion”…I advice na magkaroon sa atin ng Transportation Testing Center that will test all vehicles(old and new) bago ma-release ang road permit for another year(or next year).Kung marami ng sakit,junk session na.This can be done by LTO or whoever assign in this.Tandaan nyo na hindi mauubos ang sasakyan at bagkos dumarami pa….Basta may sira,kailangan na ipagawa! This will ensure safety from accident.

    4) Improvement in Public School buildings and Hospital facilities…..I suggest for my country to centralize our Ambulance which means not only every Hospital will acquire Ambulance but an Ambulance Center from which it will be easy for people to access.

    5) Improvement in Health Care System…..Honestly speaking,I like during Marcos regime the “Under Six(6) Clinic! Libreng check up sa mga bata with ages 0-6 yrs old.Why can´t we make a new version like “UNDER SIX and OVER SIXTY CLINIC? Aside from children under six yrs old eh kasama din ang over 60,para naman sa mga matatanda natin na gustong magpagamot ng libre lalo na sa mahihirap?Lalo na po sa matatanda na na hanggang ngayon eh nagtatrabaho pa at deretso ang serbisyo sa mamamayan?…I also like the “Imelda Project” before na may libreng operasyon during early 80´s.

    Kaya pala ambilis magsipirma sa impeachment ang mga tongressman. Para pirmahan na rin ni Penoy ang budget kasama ang kanilang pork barrel.

    Talaga nga naman.

    Taxpayers, tighten your belts. The budget for next year will be your trouble. Have you imagine what kind of budget was approved? Well, it’s a huge spending one that doesn’t give exact concern to the economy of the poor country, Philippines. Even with a remittance economy, no astute economic program that might create jobs is in the pipeline. 

    Why was it approved swiftly? Trade-off was the key. Pork barrel, the biggest source of corruption among politicians, was rewarded by Nhoynhoy so that his corruption-friendly CCT will get the budget that he wished. So again, politics is the main play of the officials in the government – AND NOT PUBLIC SERVICE.

    Every department secretary are now busy releasing fallacious gains. One thing is sure to be so difficult to do for the politicians and officials – to tell and accept the truth.

    • MugPerez

      The two sections are indeed of different sourced from different articles.  But they are not so exclusive.  Fundamental in statutory constructions is that laws should be understood as a whole.

      There is an undeniable link between the two. The appointing authority, id est, the President.

      The President is expressly and mandatorily prohibited from making appointments during such period.  Appointment to the vacancy in the Supreme Court finds no basis as an exception in under either sections.

      Vacancy was made on 12 May.  Former president’s term ends 30 June.  A good 48 days remain for the new President to take action and fill the vacancy.

      My two cents worth. (“,)

      • MugPerez

        Bakit hindi mo sagutin ang argumentong sinimulan mo.

        Sa aking ala-ala, may desisyon ang Korte Suprema na binaligtad para lamang bigyang puwang at dahilan ang appointment ni Chief Justice Corona. Hindi kaya ito ang paglapastangan sa Konstitusyon, na baligtarin at bigyang dahilan and issue na dati nang nadesisyunan?

        Sino kaya sa ating dalawa ang bayaran? Ang sa akin ay pag-iisip ng malaya. Ang tingin ko katulad ka ng ibang mga abugado ng dating Pangulong GMA, na kahit linsil ang argumento, alam nila na mayroon silang kikilingan pagdating sa Kataas-taasang Hukuman. Siguro may katotohanan ang mga hablang iniharap kay Chief Justice, kung ganito ang pag-iisip ng mga kumukiling kay PGMA. (“,).

  • Raymond Ballon

    I commend Mr. Aquino for this swift resolution which favors the majority of our poor fellows.

    I think, the most important department that he should prioritize is the education department. He says the biggest chunk of the budget goes to this sector. However, we should wisely allocate the resources to the elementary, secondary and tertiary levels. Since universities in the Philippines have gone down the ranks, we may correctly suggest that the tertiary should have the biggest allocation.

    This is a good move on the part of the President. But let us wait and see. Passing a fiscal budget is different from implementing and assuring that every peso goes to the benefit of the target.

    I noticed that education gets the lion share of next year’s budget.  The President wants that 6 to 14 years old must have access to free education.  That’s good for the poor who can’t afford to finish elementary and high school educations.

    Some 2.3 million Filipino families - ”poorest” in the nation shall receive a subsidy of up to P1,400 aside from health benefits that poor families seriously needed.

    Even the 200,000 poor seniors shall find a helping hand under the administration of President Aquino.

    Public Works and Defense spendingS shall provide employment and job opportunities to millions in the country.  The approved budget for fiscal year 2012 is well-balanced and geared to improving our economy and helping poor Filipinos all over the country. 

    Great job Congress and President Aquino.

    NEXT MOVE shall be STRENGHTENING the AUDIT and CHECK systems.  If you do this Mr. President, you shall be written in history as perhaps ONE of the best Presidents we ever had.

    And don’t forget GMA, CORONA, ABALOS, and the MURDERERS in Mindanao.  They shall be subjected to the strictest implementation of LAW.

    Only in the Philippines na yung nagbabayad ng tamang buwis not enjoying what they are paying for! Instead na encouraging them to pay our government has allocated to “2.3 million poor families” but they never consider those people pumping money for government treasury..   Di ba sila nahihiya nyan?  No wonder We are still a third world country pag uutak ng ating namumuno ganun parin.. di na dapat ikahiya! kasi ganun talaga paguutak natin! palagi nating pinupuna ang bad comment and impression ng foreigner saatin e tama naman sila….

    Only in the Philippines! di mo yan makikita kung saan saan… na mas ini-encourage ng gobyerno ang mga taong mahihirap na maging tamad  at umasa nalang  sa ibibigay ng gobyerno.. Instead of giving away for FREE why not just subsidized and invest more on micro financing para na naman  atleast may makita tayong resulta, and kahit maliit lang  gegenerate parin ng work. We allocated that much on project that doesn’t generate anything….And itong budget nato mapupunta ba talaga sa dapat pag laanan or pag punduhan? di kaya ito ma pupunta lang sa ilang curropt at piling mga tauhan ng mga AQUINO?
