Recto’s Watered-Down Sin Tax Bill Version

THERE’S THE RUB: Completely different angle

The people who toiled through the night to get the sin taxes passed have every reason to be pissed off at Ralph Recto. They can only feel stabbed in the back. The difference between P60 billion and P15 billion is vast, the first being the revenue that would have been gotten from the original sin tax bill and the second from Recto’s watered-down version of it. The charge that he’s more concerned with protecting the health of the tobacco industry than that of his countrymen is believable.

 

Bakit itong si Recto wala ng naisip na batas kundi TAX TAX TAX TAX! Saan ba napupunta ang tax na yan? Hindi bale sana kung nagagastos ng maayos at transparent ang buwis ng mamamayan! Eh hanggang ngayon ang daming sirang daan… ang dudumi ng kalye… ang polusyon grabe… traffic palagi… Ang daming nagugutom na batang lansangan…. pati airport ampanget!!!

Kapag karaniwang tao at basic needs ang papatawan ng tax, agad-agad, kapag malalaking kumpanya, lalo na yung mga may malaking planta sa batangas, ang daming achuchu.

In fairness to Sen Recto (if I try to look into their side of the street).
His proposal was gradual_3-tier tax increase. The government_DOF, BIR, DOH, Malacanang, wants All-In. Claiming that the projected tax of Php60Billion has been factored in sa 2013 budget.

On E-Vat : Yes, he was the main culprit on this E-Vat. However, he was also the one recently, that the E-Vat is no longer needed since the country has recuperated a bit from the illness. E-Vat was meant to keep the economy afloat, together with the OFW Remittance money. Presently, the economy is floating, Sen. Recto has mentioned, that it is time to review the E-Vat.

Local tobacco producers : There are plenty of them in oru country. They have families to feed too. High taxation on this products would lead to smuggling of the same. Leaving our producers with no resources.

Don’t get me wrong, I want the Sin Tax to be so high up that it could be affordable only to those who have money to throw away.

Actually…. kahit ano pang mahal ng sigarilyo, may mag sisisgarilyo parin. Ang sigarilyo ay KATULAD DIN NG DRUGS NA NAKAKA A ADDICT TULAD DIN NG ALAK! Sa japan ang isang kaha ng sigarilyo dito ay 200 pesos to 300 pesos. Isang kaha po yan! Mahal din ang alak (alcholic liqiuors) .

Magkano ba ang henessy sa Pilipinas? Sa Japan, I think nasa 3,000 pesos yata eh… Sa japan kahit tumaas ang halaga ng sigarilyo ay may bumibili parin, meron din huminto. Sabi nga nila mahina na ang mga kumpanya ng mga tobacco companies dito sa japan. Pero wala silang magawa dahil mas malakas ang kagustuhan na sana nga eh 100% na ay mawala na ang maninigarilyo. At ito ay ginagawa din ng gobyerno.

Ok lang taasan ang sigarilyo at yung tax nito ay mapupunta sa bayan din. Next year magtataas uli ng halaga ang mga sigarilyo , I think magiging 400 pesos to 500pesos na! Sa america mahal din ang sigarilyo. Mas mahal yata sa Japan o same lang yata. Pero ang dinig ko sa Britain ang pinaka mahal ang sigarilyo at sa France yata.

Sa totoo lang , kung talagang gusto mong huminto ng paninigarilyo ay tibay ng loob at pangako na di napapako. Then makakahinto ka. Sa unang paghinto mo tataba ka, yan ang tendency kasi habang nagpipigil ka ng sigarilyo, gusto mo may ilalagay ka lagi sa bibig mo. Sabi ng iba candy or chewing gums. Yung iba sumasarap ang pagkain kaya tumataba. Pero sabi ng iba, sa una lang daw ito at bumabalik din sa dati ang timbang.

Well! depende din sa tao kung paano naman nya kokontrolin ito o mag exercise sya. Pero sa totoo lang, masarap sa dibdib na hindi na naninigarilyo, maluwag ang hangin pag sumimoy ka.(pwera ibat ibang pollution sa pinas ha! lol) gumaganda ang skin mo din. Nakaka-ipon ka pa ng pera.
