Ipinahayag ni Senior Deputy Minority Leader Rep. Neri J. Colmenares (Bayan Muna Party-list), Setyembre 26, 2014

Ginoong Speaker, mga kapwa mambabatas, salamat sa pagkakataong ibinigay sa representasyong ito para maipahayag ang posisyon ng mahihirap at aping mamamayan sa panahong ito ng Turno En Contra.

Sinasabing nasasalamin sa pambansang badyet ang patakarang pang-ekonomya at prayoridad ng pamahalaan. Tama ito. Narito po ako para ipakita sa inyo na maling-mali ang PPP ng P2.6 trilyong 2015 budget.
