The decision of the Supreme Court striking down the Aquino administration’s Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) as unconstitutional was so devastating to his regime that it sent the President on a warpath against the high court, provoking the worst showdown between the two independent organs of Philippine democracy since he took office in 2010.
President Aquino is politically dead. We are just waiting now for the burial!
He has the temerity to threaten the Supreme Court in protest of its unanimous decision declaring the despicable Disbursement Acceleration Program unconstitutional.
President Aquino’s primetime defense of the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) was full of thick-faced lies and was an insult to the Filipino people.

To be fair, P-Noy never offered it as a serious proposition, he merely hinted at it. That is for people to wear yellow to signify their continuing trust in his leadership. But you never know, some people might think it a bright idea to people-power the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). It is not.

It was a strange decision, not so much ruling that the DAP (Disbursement Acceleration Program) was unconstitutional, but what happens now that the Supreme Court has said that it is. The decision was quite decisive with its declaration of unconstitutionality but opened a can of worms with its brand of uncertainty.
