How can a Speaker avoid getting replaced? By suspending the session which won't allow voting. While this delays any ouster plot, it also delays passage of the 2021 national budget. Sen. Drilon cited part of the budget that is in danger of being used for the 2022 elections. PhilHealth is just one of the graft-ridden government corporations and the others must also be investigated, according to Sen. Go. Meralco may give discounts to low income households that cannot afford to pay electricity at full cost.
