Solid north election backlash

Marcos Jr. warns ‘sin tax’ backers of Ilocanos’ ire

MANILA, Philippines—Beware the Ilocano vote—not just in the so-called Solid North but all over the country.

Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Friday warned reelectionist senators who ratified the sin tax bill of a backlash from voters not only from northern Luzon but from their relatives and friends scattered all over the country.

Marcos, a former governor of the tobacco-producing province of Ilocos Norte, said he expected Ilocanos living outside the region to make their displeasure known over the sin tax bill Congress passed that would drastically raise tobacco and alcohol taxes.

“This Christmas I’ll be going to Ilocos. I’m sure they [tobacco farmers] will call a meeting to discuss the effects of the sin tax on them,” Marcos said at Friday’s news forum at the Senate.

Ilocanos everywhere

“I think Ilocanos who don’t live up north will make their presence felt because of the sin tax bill. They still have relatives and friends among those that would be affected,” he said.

Under the sin tax measure ratified by both houses of Congress after a hearing in the bicameral conference committee, the tobacco industry is expected to generate P164.47 billion in tax revenue in the next five years.

On the other hand, the incremental revenue target for distilled fermented liquor for 2013 to 2017 is P48.53 billion and for distilled spirits P35.49 billion.

The sin tax bill is expected to generate P33.96 billion in incremental revenue in 2013.  Of this amount, the tobacco industry is mandated to collect P23.4 billion.

Marcos believes the 69:31 tax-sharing ratio between the tobacco and alcohol producers will kill the tobacco industry and cost the farmers their livelihood.

“There is an election. They all know who voted for what.  It’s rather clear to them. They observed, they watched,” said Marcos of the Ilocano farmers and their relatives and friends.


“The campaign period will come, we’ll go around and people will ask us who we should help among the candidates,” he added.

Marcos said he and Nacionalista Party mate, reelectionist Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, had talked about how Trillanes’ vote in favor of the sin tax bill could affect his candidacy.

“I know I’ll be hit in the North,” Marcos quoted Trillanes as saying.

While the bicam-approved P23.4-billion tax burden on tobacco is lower than the Senate-approved version in the first year, Marcos said the succeeding years up to 2017 would see a higher burden share for tobacco than that recommended by the Senate.

“It’s back-loaded,” he said. Marcos voted for the Senate version of the sin tax bill but against the bicameral conference committee version. The measure will now go to President Aquino for his signature and enactment into law.

       At saka Bongbong, kayong mga Ilocano pwede namang magtanim ng ibang mga halaman na hindi nakamatay.

      Kung gusto mong suportahan ang mga Ilocano ay kayong mga Ilokano ang dapat manigarilyo ng 24/7 from 10 years old hanggang sa mamatay na kayo. Magsimula ka….ikaw ang manigarilyo, sunod mga anak mo at mga kapatid at mga pamangkin. Pati si Imelda encourage her to smoke.

  • G Gajelonia

    Oh, puh-lease! Spare us of this regionalist BS talk. 

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    Bongbong, there are other agri. products that ilocos soil can produce other than tobacco! you should know that…….

  • Flavio

  • wehd1nga

    hala lagot kayo pro sintax politicians, goodbye na political career ninyo.

  • ApoLapullapu

    Not all Ilocanos depend on tobacco farming and a lot of them do not smoke anymore.  Naalpasen ite mga tawen idekalman.

  • nelsonkamloon

    Whether Sin tax is good or not, just disregard the name of Marcos in politics.

  • blainz

    Arrogance incarnate.

    Bongbong should expect a backlash from all Filipinos who’s had a loved one die of cancer.

    As for those farmers, tobacco isn’t the only crop you can plant, grow something more nourishing and less killing. And for Ilocanos, please stop inflicting the Marcoses on the rest of the country. Not only are they so yesterday, they’re yesterday’s vomit.

  • juno93

    Hindi lang Ilocano ang nabubuhay sa Pilipinas!

  • ManongOsang

    BongBong, Before you start WARNING us about the Ilocano backlash- BAKIT HINDI MO MUNA IBALIK sa Filipino people are  $4 Billion DOLLARS na NINAKAW Ng pamilya ninyo!!!

    Kung mahal mo ang mga Ilokano, then, YOU CAN AFFORD TO GIVE YOUR people the Hundreds of Million DOLLARS na ninankaw ninyo!!!

    These were BILLIONS of Dollars in United States Financial Aid to the Philippines na ninakaw ninyo!!!

    Frankly, You or Any Marcos has NO MORAL AUTHORITY to ever tell us what to do !!!!

    Ilocanos are not what you knows Mr. Marcos…we are not who blindly followed your father. Your Family raped the country…stole  Billions of Dollars which is still hidden in Foreign vaults.

  • jose

    Bonbong is practicing scare tactics, that his father used to employ for his dictatotorial rule against the Filipino people. The senators should vote according to what is good for the whole country, and not be coerced by a few with vested interest.

  • kobe wade..

    Anong gusto mo bongbong? Mamatay ang mga tao sa kakahitit ng sigarilyo? Huh!!

  • ricardo

    This is as stupid as stupid gets. Bongbong should do better than to insult or disrespect his fellow lawmakers. Lawmaking is a function of democracy. Its goal is to promote the general welfare, not reelection.

    If taking good care of Ilocanos is your priority, we’ll let you be. But don’t expect the others to cozy up to the Ilocanos and abandon public health and the general welfare.


    MATAGAL na kasing dapat namayapa na yan, e, talagang madaling makalimot ang mga Pinoy o…madaling mabili.  Pwede ding pareho.itong hambugerong yagit na ito, gustong-gusto sa lugar namin.  Gustong-gustong ihatid sa HP (himlayang pilipino).

  • Luthmar

    Tobacco, cigarette smoking KILLS.  Bong Bong tell your Ilocano followers to plant corns or camote, instead.  You should worry about the people’s health, not their pockets.

  • jr18496

    In Hawaii, if you ask an Ilokano if he/she is a Pilipino, he/she would reply NO! I am an Ilokano.
    Those non-Ilokano Pilipinos should not vote for Marcos or anybody they endorsed. There are more non-Ilokanos in th ePhilippines than Ilokanos.

  • jr18496

    In the first place, why did Marcos get elected in a Nation wide election? Does it mean that there are non-Ilokanos who voted for him?

    Marcos Jr doesn’t know the Ilocano peoples’ sentiment. Heck, he can’t even speak Ilocano. He’s he’s nothing but an interloper in Ilocandia. Such divisive statements coming from him show only too well that whilst he may have inherited is father’s looks, he unfortunately ( or fortunately for the Filipino) did not inherit his father’s intelligence. His delivery is good but woefully lacking in the substance department..

    Sen. Marcos, so are you saying that just because your people up in the North that produce and processes Tobacco that it’s the only livelihood you can help them with? C’mon. You’re a leader. You can provide better answer to your people than that. Or probably you’re the one scared that you cannot propose an alternative livelihood for hardworking Ilocanos.

         Hello! Ang layo ng sagot mo sa topic ko. Now to answer your different topic, I suggest you read the book, “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson, M.D. And history will also teach you that Man can do more than mope. Don’t say I don’t feel for the farmers but have you read the latest news here? A British firm will open up a US$200M plant in Ilocos. So much for that!

      • batangpaslit

        I don’t have that book anymore, “Who Moved My Cheese?”.

    The Marcoses, especially Bong-bong, have been insulting the Ilocanos for so long. They think the Ilocanos are hopelessly parochial and that they would always vote as a clan. Ilocanos are more intelligent than that. Even children of tobacco farmers know and understand the harm that their produce is causing on the health of a lot of people. Many are now encouraging their parents and families to shift to other economic activities to support themselves decently and to be good contributors to the well-being of society. Don’t count on us to be forever fooled Bong-bong!

        paki basa mo po muna ito..then decide: “The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.”– Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor from 121-180 A.D.

        1944 Benigno Aquino Sr- charged with TREASON- japanese collaborator ( pinoy who collaborate w/ JIA are known as MAKAPILI)
        Arrest and collaboration chargesIn December 1944, as the American forces continued their advance to liberate the Philippines from Japanese forces, the government of the Second Philippine Republic was moved to Baguio which included Aquino before they flew to Japan where together with other officials they were arrested and imprisoned at the Sugamo Prison when the Japanese surrendered. On August 25, 1946, Aquino was flown back to the Philippines for his trial on treason charges by the People’s Court

        1968 Benigno NINOY Aquino jr– RP lost oil rich SABAH due to his political ambition. Aquino was imprisoned on charges of murder and subversion. He was found guilty of subversion and sentenced to death in November 1977. ( MARCOS the MERCIFUL )This was commuted into exile to allow a humanitarian medical treatment in the United States in 1980, accompanied by his wife. According to some through the efforts of Imelda Marcos convinced Pres. Marcos to be merciful..International media called marcos the merciful…even US president bush was a FAN of marcos. Benigno Aquino Jr. ,NINOY is a friend of MALAYSIAN LEADERS.. Ninoy’s accomplishments in the Senate and his most famous political stunts. such as the fateful revelation of allegedly 1968 Jabidah Massacre (the killing of about 60 Filipino-Muslims who were being trained for an operation authorized by Marcos to secretly infiltrate & claim the island of Sabah from Malaysia), resulted in the alleged mass killings of our advanced civlian groups mostly tausugs & ilocanos in sabah..and the birth of muslim rebellion in the south (mnlf, milf,biff) ..1968 NINOY aquino EXPOSE- the RE-TAKING of oil rich SABAH by marcos ..MNLF was born ..MUSLIM rebellion begun which resulted in the killing of 130,000.& displacement of million of families..NO WONDER ..pres. cory & noynoy will not claim sabah..our LOST oil rich territory due to ninoy’s friendly relations to malaysia..
