Duterte's 10 Point SocioEconomic Agenda: CHED's increased 8 Billion budget to secure free tuition in SUCs

Days ago, prominent social media personality Richard Heydarian asked on his Facebook page if the Filipinos have already felt the change that President Duterte has promised during the campaign period. Many Filipinos have answered his query by sharing their personal experiences. Judging from the responses on his post, you would be surprised how much safer and satisfied most Filipinos feel today.

If that's not enough, here's how much CHANGE the government is giving Filipinos now.

In a Facebook post published by Malou Tiquia, a renowned political analyst and strategist, she pointed out 7 basic reforms that this government has taken so far. Abiding to the 10-Point Socioeconomic Agenda of President Duterte, here are 7 provisions that the legislative has approved according to Tiquia:
1. Increased budget worth P8 billion for the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) so that all college students enrolled in any SUC in the country will not have to pay for their tuition fee.

2. P3 billion increase in the PhilHealth was approved so that all Filipinos will now be covered by the universal healthcare program, while indigent patients will not have to pay for anything in government hospitals under the No Balance Billing (NBB) policy.

3. Additional funds for the Department of Health (DOH) worth P1.521 billion for the Doctors to the Barrio program, construction of additional health facilities, and medical assistance to indigent patients; as well as the P2.646 billion allocation for the establishment of DOH-Treatment and Rehabilitation Centers in regions which do not have such facility.

4. P100 million will be granted to centenarians and additional funding is provided for the supplemental feeding program. Moreover, all 4.4 million beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) will now be entitled to a rice allowance in the form of cash grants.
5. P2 billion is provided to subsidize irrigation fees that farmers have long been shouldering.

6. Additional P1 billion is allocated under the Small Business Corporation so it can provide loans at almost no interest to microenterprises; additional funds were also provided for various programs of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) including Employment Facilitation and Capacity Building Service

7. Allocation for the combat and incentive pay of the military and police worth P12.1 billion, as well as funding for the Capability Enhancement Program of the PNP.

Thats a total of Php3.350 Trillion budget for FY2017.
