President Rodrigo Duterte's close aide said the tax payment of middle-class families contribute to the country's economy."Mahalaga po ang papel ng middle class sa ating bansa at ekonomiya. Kaya naman po nararapat lamang na hindi sila mapabayaan ng gobyerno sa krisis na ito," said Go.

[Translation: Middle-class families play a big role in our country and economy. The government should also take care of them.]Go reiterated his appeal to banks, quasi-banks, and other financial institutions — both public and private — to provide a grace period and impose no increase in interest rates on consumer and corporate loans to assist the Filipino middle class so they can bounce back.

The Labor Department is giving one-time cash aid of P5,000 to affected workers in the private sector under the government's social amelioration program. Meanwhile, the Trade Department has launched an assistance program for small and medium enterprises under the social amelioration measures.

The national government is currently studying calls to provide more cash assistance to middle-income families. Duterte said his administration is working"double time" to also provide for the needs of the middle class. Read more: CNN Philippines »

Then why not just give tax cuts to those who are employed so they can have more take home pay. 😂😂😂CLOSE AIDE!!! thank you at least for not printing his disgustingly cloying name.

Now he is singing a different tune, but still you will not get my vote. Oh ha. May nagpapabida na naman. Bilib ako sa social media listeners ng gobyerno. Well funded talaga para meron silang sagot agad sa mga trending issues, not to come up with well planned solutions, just motherhood statements to look like they are on top of every popular issue.

Kung saan ang sunog, doon siya magpahambog Wow, ayan na nman si Bong Go walang originality. Mahilig manggaya at manguha ng credits ng iba. Si Cong. Salceda ang nagpropose na isama middle class March 19 pa pero di pinansin. Grabe naman kayo maka close aide. Hardworking yan si Sen. Tay, shout out mo ulit sya sa susunod na speech ha? matagal na rin sya hindi nababanggit sa speech.

Manahimik ka nga Aide, alalay, caregiver, maid, utusan, tagatakbo, all respectful jobs EXCEPT when it's bong go. Thank you cnn for not referring him as senator, because he's every inch not one. senatePH Dahil maraming nagreklamo...pa-papel na naman ang pambansang epal. Pinarurusahan na nga ang tao ng DIYOS sa mga gnagawa nyo sa kapwa nyo ala pa rin kyong tigil,tuloy tuloy pa rin paninira nyo sa kapwa,bka ubusin na kyo ng DIYOS sa pmamagitan ng virus na yan

Are you just realizing this? Or is it the in thing now? Regardless the middle class won’t vote for you. Oh god. Not sure he's a senator or a roadie. 😒 Nagpapa gwapo ung epal... Yes wag tawaging senador kasi pagpapa-epal lang ang alam nyan. 🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭 'aide' 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Pootah, ikaw na naman?!!!!

Close Aide. Haay, Sen Bong Go, be a man to fulfill duties sa larangan na pinasok mo. Parang pinilit lang to maging senador para maging saling pusa sa mga botohan. Echo Chamber? thank u Bong Go for that exclusive info. this wld be the most impt info we get from an aide when there's a serious crisis. ang bilisbilis tlaga ng response nyo sa pagtulong sa mga poor at middle class.

First lady Never heard of a legislator who works at the executive branch of the government. Okay maybe I was not present at class when this part of the Philippine Constitution was discussed back in college. Yung ang tawag sa iyo close aide, samantalang senator ka 😂😂😂 Hindi ka pa rin iboboto ng middle-class

Di mo kami mabobola Close aide talaga di Senator ahahaha buti nga. He’s running out of scripts. Can’t come up w/ a better one cause he’s brainless.💀🧠 Bakit ung mayaman wala bang tax? His only job is being close aide to Rodrigo, bakit pinasweldo as Senator yan? Digong’s favorite PA sangkalan nalang lagi ang middle class.

This guy knows nothing about economy, taxation and other national issues. He's a clown in the senate... wag seryosohin sinasabi nya. Lol! Bong Go is like a skid mark in your underwear you can't get rid of. Everyone has to deal with it from time to time but nobody wants it. Actually, pinaka-neglected middle class kapag may trahedya. Pero ang middle class ang isa sa may malalaking contribution sa economiya. Bago namin mahawakan ang sweldo, kaltas agad ang tax.

Regardless. Don't give that crap as alibi. Give what every middle class families deserves. Epa pa more Naman naman...close aide? He is an elected senator....aide is alalay e...sabagay ..bagay! Ahahaha. Ang comment niya ay mga 2 days after ng issue. nakikiramdam muna ang pambansang epal. Playing safe lagi ang gago.

Hu u powz? Chinese scammers have looted our people. Time to return the favour for our treasury Aide pa rin sya diba tumakbo at nanalo na syang senator my hero ....🤮 You won't get votes from the middle class. He's a Philippine Senator, Filipino people voted for him. We commonly addressed people who held previously government for the position they had what more if they are in their currently in the position.

How is this brand new info. [Anyway, yes to expanded coverage of the governmental aid to reach more families] 🤔
