When I got an invite for the bloggers meet with TG Guingona III, I was like, â€œwho is this guy?â€ The only thing that entered my mind was, he is probably a relative of Teofisto Guingona. But why is he running for senator?
When I saw him, I said to myself that ahhhh. Iâ€™ve seen him on Television. Still, the question remained. Who is he? Heâ€™s not popular. How can he win the election?
I asked him that and he said thatâ€™s why he is joining his partyâ€™s rallies as he doesnâ€™t have sufficient funds to advertise himself.
Teofisto â€œTGâ€ Guingona III is with Noynoyâ€™s campaign. He is joining all the activities of the Liberal Party. They share the same advocacies. TGâ€™s main advocacy however is Budget Reform.
As representative of the 2nd district of Bukidnon, Congressman TG Guingona III has filed several bills/resolutions on budget reform which are still pending with the committee on Appropriations.
How is our budget done anyway?
To explain in simple terms, the budget is first proposed by the president (executive). The Congress (legislature) will review the proposal and authorize it. It is congress that will say where the money goes. It is their most important law that they will pass in the year. When approved by Congress, the president will implement it.
Do you honestly think that the budget allocation is being followed? Your guess is as good as mine.
