In Congress, militant solons endorsed three impeachment complaints against Aquino over the partly unconstitutional Disbursement Acceleration Program and the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement.

“Kontra rin po sila sa inyo… Patuloy pa rin ang kontra sa pagbabago (They are against you…They are against reforms),” Aquino said.
