Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson slammed Senator Bam Aquino and his supporters for getting the credit for the law on free college education signed by President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Co author daw si Bam at si PRRD nag sign lang naman so credit goes to Bam. Ay tongak! San ba manggagaling ang budget?!?” Uson tweeted.
Netizens responded to Uson’s tweet.
“Sa buwis ng mga Pilipino, parehong pinagkukuhanan ng sweldo mo. Pinaglalaban mo bes?” said Facebook page Assortedge.
Uson’s tweet was also flooded with similar responses.
One Twitter user, @Wanabels, even urged Uson to go back to school.
“Since libre na ang tertiary education, pwede ka na magenroll. YOU OWE IT TO THE COUNTRY. JUSKO KALOKA KA GURL,” she tweeted.
Another one tweeted, “Are you implying na kay Duts galing ang budget???? Uhm, news flash: sa taxpayers galing ‘yun. Dun din nanggagaling sahod mo.”
@diannalouise explained to Uson that while Duterte signed the bill into law, he would not have been able to sign anything if the bill was not passed in Congress in the first place.
“Hindi naman pwdeng maging law and isang bill w/o Duterte’s signature, pero wala siyang mapipirmahan kung walang bill na pinasa ang Congress,” she said.
“Sa bulsa ko Mocha. Pati sweldo mo. Taga allocate lang kayo,” @lamielcarl tweeted.
@ohitsmiko lectured Uson on the Congress’ say on the government budget.
Other Twitter users used GIFs and memes to react to Uson’s tweet.

In her Facebook page, Uson also wrote about the law on free tuition, saying that the bill has finally been signed into law because Duterte prioritized it and allotted a budget for it.
“Alam po ba ninyo na matagal nang pinupush yang FREE TUITION FEE na yan? Bakit ilang Pangulo na ang dumaan at hindi naging batas??? Eh kasi nga depende pa din sa pondo na ilalagay ng Pangulo dyan. Kung wala naman budget in-allot ang Pangulo dyan hindi talaga magagawang batas yan. Babalik lang yan sa legislative,” she posted.
Uson slammed former President Benigno Aquino III for his failed promises on free college education and freedom of information.
“Katulad nang nang yari kay PNOY. Puro pangako wala naman nangyari. Natandaan niyo yung FOI? Pangako din ni Pnoy ala din nangyari. At ito nga FREE TUTION FEE ganun din pinangako pero walang nangyari,” she said.
She praised Duterte and hit the ‘epal’ politicians.
“Ngayon si PRRD nag allot talaga ng budget para dyan kaya naisabatas yan. Buti nga si PRRD kahit may mga ibang LP Senators na author nyang bill na yan hindi nya pinulitika. Pinirmahan pa rin nya. Kaya mahiya naman mga umeepal na pulitiko dyan. HINDI NA TANGA TAO NGAYN,” she added, with hashtags “No to #EPALitiko NoToLP #NoToDilawan.
