Lacson ready to lose some friends, gain enemies in pork barrel battle


Ready to rumble.

Senator Panfilo Lacson is prepared to lose some friends and gain enemies in fighting any pork barrel allocation during the annual deliberations of the proposed national budget.

“The yearly ‘pork battle’ is on. Gloves are off once more. It’s time to lose some friends and create more enemies. I’ll be busy blocking trolls again. I never learn,” he tweeted.

The Senate is set to begin the hearings on the proposed P4.1-trillion national budget following advanced approval of the spending plan last Friday at the House of Representatives. The budget proposal is reportedly on track for approval before the end of the year.
