Lawyer Chides VP Leni for Taking Credit on Excise Tax on Fuel Issue

Veteran lady lawyer and prominent supporter of Pres. Rody Duterte, Atty. Trixie Cruz Angeles chides VP Leni for allegedly taking credit on controversial excise tax on fuel issues being discussed by both Mayor ISko Moreno and Presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos. 


Mayor Isko Moreno earlier claimed that once elected as President he will cut taxes on oil by 50% while Sen. Bongbong Marcos on his part wants an immediate suspension of the excise taxes to reduce fuel prices immediately. 


Due to the controversies involving presidential aspirant Moreno and Marcos, the camp of the Manila Mayor accused Marcos of "idea thievery" which BBM supporters such as Atty. Nick Nangit rejected.

According to the veteran lawyer and defender of Marcos, the ideas of the Moreno camp are not covered by Intellectual Property Code. 

Beside from that, Atty. Nick stated that BBM clearly outlined how he will do it unlike Isko who just said he will cut the fuel tax by 50% without elaborating his proposal.

The controversial topic involving both presidential aspirant Moreno and Marcos  reached the camp of VP Leni as a result, a few days later, VP Leni Robredo joined the fun and claimed that as early as 2018, she already proposed the suspension of excise tax on fuel but because she was part of the Opposition, it was rejected. 


Based on various reactions on social media, the VP camp was apparently not very pleased that only now, BBM, have joined the chorus calling for excise tax suspension because it is election season.  

Due to the controversial statement of VP Leni, Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles took to Facebook and slammed the Vice President for the claimed. 

Atty. Angeles called out VP Leni, telling her that her call for suspension of excise tax on fuel is unnecessary for two reasons. 

First there is no such things as automatic suspension clause if the price of oil hit the $80.00 per barrel. Second, 2018 was a different time because the Philippine economy was robust versus the Philippine economy in 2021. 


Read the Complete Statement of Atty. Angeles:

Iba po panahon ng 2018, madame. Walang COVID. May automatic suspension clause sa batas that says pag umabot ng $80/barrel, suspendido na excise taxes. Malakas ang ekonomiya nun.

Nagmagaling ka na naman.Iba po panahon ng 2018, madame. Walang COVID. May automatic suspension clause sa batas that says pag umabot ng $80/barrel, suspendido na excise taxes. Malakas ang ekonomiya nun.

Nagmagaling ka na naman.
