Mar pushing the Cheaper Medicines bill with Ilongo solons

Tuesday, August 28, 2007 | posted in , , , | 0 comments

They had indeed joined forces in order to help bring down the cost of our very expensive medicines which deprives our fellow citizens from having the quality healthcare they need no matter what the big pharmaceutical companies do.

Together with Senator Mar Roxas, who is pushing the Cheaper Medicines bill (Senate Bill No. 2263) in the Senate, his fellow Ilongos in the House are also helping him in order to expedite the passage of the said bill. These Ilongo solons are as follows:
  1. Iloilo Representative Janette Garin
  2. Iloilo Representative Ferjenel Biron
  3. Capiz Representative Antonio del Rosario
  4. South Cotabato Representative Arthur Pinggoy (also an Ilonggo)

Rep. Garin even said that "Maybe, he (Senator Mar Roxas) found a good campaign slogan in it for his presidential bid in 2010." Even if it's for 2010 or not, it's still for the people. He is being perceived that every thing he does today is for 2010.

Let's hope that together, they can reconcile their different versions of the Cheaper Medicines bill so that they could fast-track the bill immediately.
