Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Monday assured the public that he will scrutinize and ensure that the proposed 2020 national budget will be a “pork-free or cholesterol-free” budget.

In a statement, the senator – who is the vice-chair of the Senate Committee on Finance – stressed that he will make sure that no taxpayers’ money will be wasted and that the 2020 national budget will undergo scrutiny to make sure that government can maximize it for the betterment of the lives of Filipinos.

Go also highlighted that the budget should be given back to the people through quality and easily accessible basic services, such as healthcare which could greatly benefit the indigent and those who are hit by calamities and disasters.

Asked if he supports the adoption of the House version of the budget and the removal or vetoing of the reported “parked” funds, Go told that he will look into the matter carefully and stressed that the budget for next year must be passed by Congress in time, otherwise the government and the Filipino people will incur losses.
