Where I Stand

WHAT I BELIEVE IN. WHO I FIGHT FOR.

SUPPORT FOR OUR FARMERS AND FOOD SECURITY

Food security is a national security issue as food priced beyond the reach of the majority of Filipinos can lead to widespread hunger, instability, and unrest. Improving food supplies is the key to making food affordable and ensuring the food security of our nation. We are committed to pushing for legislation and supporting programs that will develop our agricultural sector and provide our farmers—our food security soldiers—with the weapons they need to win the war versus hunger.

JOBS, JOBS, JOBS

The prosperity of our country involves providing economic opportunities for our people via an environment that is conducive for business and spurs job generation. We will work to pass laws and advance policies that develop our industries, maximizes the country’s potential of our people, generates employment, and addresses poverty and inequity in our society.

AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE HEALTHCARE FOR EVERY FILIPINO

Despite the passage of a Universal Healthcare Law, affordable and quality medical services remain beyond the reach of our countrymen, especially those who live in the margins of society. We will fight for greater funding for healthcare so that Filipinos need not fear illness and disease, and are confident that their government will look out for them regardless of the cost of their health care.

GOOD GOVERNANCE AND EQUAL JUSTICE FOR ALL

An effective, efficient, and responsive government should work to uphold the welfare of our people and not add to their many burdens. We will strive to hold government accountable so that Filipinos get the governance they deserve, a state where all our citizens regardless of station have access to basic services and where the rich and the poor are equal in the eyes of the law.
