It’s the battle of the economists!

Marikina Congresswoman Stella Quimbo has set the record straight after getting her proposed economic stimulus bill virtually rejected by Acting Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Chua, who said her P1.3-trillion spending plan to perk up local activity was not “fundable.”

Quimbo, who also got her PhD in Economics in University of the Philippines Diliman, refuted Chua with a smile from beneath her face mask and fashion-forward fuschia dress.

“Naninindigan si Teacher Stella na naaayon sa ating Saligang Batas ang pagpondo sa kanyang P1.3-T economic stimulus, taliwas sa sinasabi ng ilang economic managers. Dagdag niya, kailangan ang agad na implementasyon ng programa, lalo’t lumobo na sa 7.3 milyon ang nawalan ng trabaho, base sa pinakahuling datos,” the politiko said.
