Senator JV Ejercito has been given the arduous task of defending the proposed 2019 budget of several government agencies in the Senate.

Ejercito admitted that his only concern was how to defend the budget of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), which has recently been criticized for a string of gaffes.

“Tasked to defend key agencies’ budget again this year. I am not worried with DOH, DOTr, DILG and others. What I am worried is how to defend PCOO. :)” Ejercito tweeted.

“It’s my duty to defend their budget as a Vice Chair of the Committee on Finance,” he added.

Ejercito voiced his concern amid the public outrage over the lewd federalism video posted by PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson on her Facebook page.
