Sinabi kaya ginawa: Karlo Nograles defends hike in SSS pension, contributions

President Rodrigo Duterte always walks the talk.

Davao City Rep. Karlo Nograles was quick to say “I told you so” upon the news that the President has signed the across-the-board pension hike for the Social Security System. The politiko said Duterte had enough political will to push for the things that he promised during his campaign.

“Because it was promised, it will be done,” Nograles said in a Facebook post.

He also defended the increase in worker contributions come May 2017, saying it was only right to raise the rates after so long. The politiko also shut down calls for the government to subsidize the higher pensions, saying it was imprudent to use public funds for the purpose.
