On allegations that teachers bonuses were removed and realigned for DAP:

Since 2012, the fund for teachers bonuses are included in the GAA charged against the
Miscellaneous Personnel Benefits Fund (MPBF) and NOT from savings.

Public school teachers, like all government employees, are now under a Performance-Based
Incentive System (PBIS) consisting of an across-the-board Performance Enhancement
Incentive (PEI) of P5,000 plus a Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) ranging from P5,000 to
P35,000, depending on performance. This means that a teacher or employee now receives a
minimum of P10,000 to a maximum of P40,000 versus the P10,000 across the board bonus in
previous years.

LIVE STREAM: President Benigno S. Aquino III has begun delivering his fifth State of the
Nation Address. http://www.gov.ph/sona-2014
Pangulong Aquino: Nalugmok nga po ang Pilipinas dahil sa labis na pamumulitika. Naglaho ang
pananalig natin sa isat isa, humina ang kumpiyansa sa atin ng mundo, at ang pinakamasakit:
Nawalan tayo ng tiwala sa ating mga sarili. Sa puntong ito natin sinimulan ang pagtahak sa
tuwid na daan.
Pangulong Aquino: Bilang ama ng bayan, nakaatang sa aking balikat, hindi lang ang mga
suliraning ating dinatnan at mga lumilitaw sa kasalukuyanobligasyon ko ring paghandaan ang
kinabukasan. Hindi po madali ang trabahong ito, at tao lang po ako, na kung minsan,
nagkakaroon din ng agam-agam. Ngunit buo ang aking loob dahil malinaw ang aking
pangunahing layunin: Ang ibalik ang gobyerno sa dapat nitong tuonang paglingkuran ang
taumbayan sa lahat ng panahon.
Pangulong Aquino: Sa Training-for-Work Scholarship Program, nag-ambag ang DAP ng 1.6
billion pesos. Nakapagpatapos po ito ng 223,615 benepisyaryo. 66 porsyento nitoo katumbas
ng 146,731 graduatesang nagtatrabaho na ngayon. Iyon naman pong 34 percent na natitira,
tinutulungan na rin ng TESDA na makahanap ng trabaho. Tingnan po ninyo: Lahat po ng mga
TESDA scholar, nakalista ang pangalan at iba pang datos, na puwede ninyong kumpirmahin.
Pangulong Aquino: Nasimulan na rin po natin ang Expanded Conditional Cash Transfer
Program nitong Hunyo 2014, na may pondong 12.3 billion pesos. Ngayon, suportado na rin ng
estado hanggang umabot ng 18 taong gulang ang benepisyaryo.
Pangulong Aquino: Namumuhunan po tayo sa pinakamahalagang yaman ng bansa: ang
taumbayan. Pinapatunayan ito ng datos ng NEDA. Ayon sa kanila, ang 27.9 percent na poverty
incidence natin sa unang semester ng 2012, bumaba patungong 24.9 percent sa kaparehong
panahon noong 2013. Ang 3 percentage points pong ito ay katumbas ng halos 2.5 milyong
Pilipinong naka-alpas na sa poverty line.
Pangulong Aquino: Dito posa isang patas na sistemanagsimula ang panunumbalik ng sigla
ng ating ekonomiya. Nakatipid tayo dahil sa maayos na pangangasiwa ng pondo. Napapalawak
natin ang saklaw ng mga serbisyo nang hindi nagtataas ng buwis, maliban sa Sin Tax Reform
na layuning ibsan ang bisyo sa lipunan.
Pangulong Aquino: Nagtrabaho tayo para magkaroon ng kakayahang tustusan ang mga
proyektong ipinatupad, ipinatutupad, at ipatutupad pa natin. Pinaigting natin ang pangongolekta
ng buwis: mula sa koleksyong P1.094 trillion pesos noong 2010, naitaas natin ito sa P1.536
trillion noong 2013. Inayos natin ang pamamahala ng ating mga utang. Ang resulta: Bumaba
ang ating debt to GDP ratio; ang perang dating dapat ibabayad sa interes, napunta na sa social
services. Pati ang mga obligasyong karamihan ay minana lang, natugunan din natin.
Pangulong Aquino: Nitong 2013, sa unang pagkakataon, nagkamit tayo ng investment grade
status mula sa Moody's, Fitch, at Standard and Poor'sang tatlong pinakatanyag na credit
rating agency sa mundo Nitong Mayo lang, panibagong upgrade na naman ang ibinigay [ng
Standard and Poors] sa atin.
Pangulong Aquino: Kung susumahin naman po ang lahat ng puhunang pumasok sa Philippine
Economic Zone Authority simula nang itatag ito noong 1995, makikitang 42 porsyento ang
pumasok sa 4 na taon ng ating panunungkulan. Ang natitirang 58 porsyento, inabot ng 15 taon
ang ibang mga administrasyon para bunuin. Kumpiyansa po tayo: bago tayo bumaba sa
puwesto, papantayan o hihigitan pa natin ang halagang ito.

Pangulong Aquino: Nitong 2013, inalis na nga po ng International Civil Aviation Organization
ang significant safety concerns sa Pilipinas. Sa parehong taon, sinundan ito ng pagpayag ng
European Union na muling lumipad ang Philippine Airlines patungong Europa. Ngayong taon
din, inupgrade ng United States Federal Aviation Administration ang Pilipinas sa Category 1.
Dahil dito, maaari nang dumagdag ang mga ruta papunta sa Estados Unidos. Sa larangan ng
turismo at pangangalakal, malaki ang itinulong ng pagdami ng flight ng ating airlines tungo sa
ibang bansa.
Pangulong Aquino: Talagang nasa sentro ng pandaigdigang entablado ang Pilipinas. Nito lang
pong nakaraang Mayo, nagpakitang-gilas tayo sa tagumpay ng pagdaraos ng World Economic
Forum on East Asia sa ating bansa. Ihahayag natin sa gaganaping APEC Summit dito sa
susunod na taon ang kaunlarang nakakamit natin at ang pagkakataong hatid nito para sa lahat.
Walang pong duda: More open for business na nga po ang Pilipinas
pangulong Aquino: Para magpatuloy ang pag-angat ng ekonomiya at pagbukas ng
pagkakataon, kailangan ng imprastruktura. Ito ang aakit sa mga negosyante, magpapabilis sa
daloy ng produkto at serbisyo, at sisigurong kaya nating makipagsabayan sa iba pang merkado
sa daigdig
Pangulong Aquino: Lampas doble na ang budget para sa imprastruktura, mula 200.3 billion
pesos noong 2011, naging 404.3 billion pesos ngayong 2014. Paalala ko lang po: Hindi po tayo
nagdagdag ng buwis maliban sa Sin Tax Reform na nakatugon sa kalusugan, habang napanatili
din ang ating allowable deficit, at patuloy na bumababa ang ating debt to GDP ratio. Malaki po
ang epekto nito, dahil hindi lang lumaki ang pondo: binawasan pa natin ang mga tagas sa
sistema, kaya natitiyak nating mas sulit ang bawat pisong ginagastos ng estado.

ang epekto nito, dahil hindi lang lumaki ang pondo: binawasan pa natin ang mga tagas sa
sistema, kaya natitiyak nating mas sulit ang bawat pisong ginagastos ng estado.
Pangulong Aquino: Kasabay ng mga natipid ng DPWH, ang nailatag, napaayos, napalawak, o
naipagawa nilang kalsada mula nang maupo tayo, umabot na sa 12,184 kilometro. Isipin ninyo:
katumbas ito ng 4 na kalsadang nag-uugnay sa Laoag hanggang Zamboanga City. National
roads lang po ito; wala pa rito ang mga local farm-to-market roads o tourism roads.
pangulong Aquino: Sa apat na taon natin sa tuwid na daan, nalampasan na natin ang
pinagsamang anim lamang na aprubadong solicited Public-Private Partnership projects mula sa
nakaraang tatlong administrasyon.
pangulong Aquino: Ang mga imprastrukturang matagal nang ipinako sa pangako, atin na rin
pong isinasakongkreto. Ang Aluling Bridge, na 1978 pa po binuo ang konsepto, bukas na sa
publiko. Ang Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3, na bahagi ng Metro Manila Expressway na
proyekto pa noong dekada sitenta, inilunsad na natin noong Enero. Sa mga dumadaan ng
Osmea Highway, nakikita naman po ninyo kung gaano kabilis itayo ang mga haligi para dito.
Ang Ternate-Nasugbu Road, na noon pang 1994 sinimulang ilatag ang plano100 percent
complete na rin ngayon.
President Aquino: Muli, dahil sa mabuting pamamahala, mas may kakayahan na tayong
tugunan, maging ang mga problemang paparating pa lang. Halimbawa: sa tubig. Alam nating
habang lumalago ang populasyon at umaangat ang ekonomiya... Hindi na po natin hihintayin
ang tagtuyot: Ang mga solusyong talagang pinag-aralan ng mga dalubhasa, inaprubahan na po
natinang Kaliwa Dam Project sa Quezon, at ang pag-aayos ng mga linya ng Angat Dam.
Pangulong Aquino: Narinig na rin ninyo ang pinakamalaki nating PPP projectang Laguna
Lakeshore Expressway Dikebubuksan na rin ang bidding bago matapos ang 2014.
Napakaraming benepisyong maidudulot nito... Pag pumalo ng 12.5 meters ang taas ng tubig sa
lawa, tiyak, babahain na ang mga komunidad sa paligid nito. Ang solusyon: dikeng may taas na
higit sa 15 metro. Ikalawa pong pakinabang: Malilinis ang tubig sa Laguna Lake. Ang ikatlo po:
Bawas trapik. Sa ibabaw ng dike, magkakaroon ng expressway, na babagtas sa Los Baos
hanggang Taguig.
Pangulong Aquino: Sa mabuting pamamahala, nanunumbalik ang tiwala ng merkado, ng
mundo, at ng taumbayan sa ating gobyerno. Nagbubunsod ito ng isang siklo: Dahil nakikita ang
resulta ng agenda ng reporma, nakikiambag ang bawat isa sa ating mga Boss. Talagang hindi
nag-iisa ang gobyerno sa pagsusulong ng malawakan at makabuluhang reporma. Totoo nga
po: Kayo ang aming lakas.
Pangulong Aquino: 3.5 billion pesos po ang nakahanda para sa pagpapaayos ng
imprastruktura, pagbili ng mga lote, pagpapatayo ng mga permanenteng tahanan, at iba pang
suporta sa Zamboanga. 2.57 billion pesos dito, nai-release na sa NHA at DPWH.
Pangulong Aquino: Bawat isa sa 25 na kritikal na tulay at kalsadang nasira ng lindol,
nadadaanan na. May kabuuang 3.583 billion pesos nang nai-release para sa rehabilitasyon ng
Bohol at Cebu. [Palakpakan] Kasama na rito ang 2.49 billion pesos na ipinagkaloob ng DILG sa
lokal na gobyerno, para sa pagpapagawa ng mga palengke, civic center, tulay, water systems,
munisipyo at ibang pang istrukturang pampamahalaan.
pangulong Aquino: Tanggap naman po siguro ng lahat na malaki ang problemang dala ni
Yolanda. Pero ayon nga po sa international standards, kapag nangyari ang ganitong klaseng
sakuna, isang taon ang inaabot bago matapos ang relief at mag-umpisa ang rehabilitasyon ng
isang bansa. Pero sa loob lang ng walong buwan, idineklara ng United Nations mismo na nasa
yugto na tayo ng rehabilitation. Si Ginoong Yuri Afanasiev ng United Nations Development
Programme na nga po ang nagsabi: "We have never seen a recovery happen so quickly. And
many of us have been in many different disasters."
Pangulong Aquino: Ngayong Hulyo, isinumite na sa atin, at nilagdaan na rin natin, ang LGU
Rehabilitation and Recovery Plan para sa Cebu, Iloilo, Samar, Eastern Samar, Leyte, at
Tacloban City. Pumasa po ito sa masusing pagsusuri ng mga cluster ng Gabinete; laman nito
ang mga pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan, ayon na rin sa isinasagawang
malawakang post-disaster needs assessment.
Pangulong Aquino: Binigyang-lakas natin ang mga LGU na siyang mga frontliner tuwing bagyo
at ibang sakuna at ibang sakuna, gamit ang moderno at malawakang forecasting system. Sa
DREAM-LiDAR project sa ilalim ng Project NOAH, halimbawa, napapadali ang pagtukoy kung
saan ang mga lugar na pinaka-babahain. Nakamapa na po ang 19 sa target nating 20 river
systems para matukoy kung ano ang mga lugar na agad naapektuhan tuwing bumubuhos ang
ulan.
Pangulong Aquino: Tuloy-tuloy ang modernisasyon ng AFP. Nakuha na natin ang brand new na
8 Sokol Combat Utility Helicopters, tatlong AgustaWestland-109 helicopters, at ang kauna-
unahang landing craft utility ship na ginawa dito mismo sa ating bansa, ang BRP Tagbanua.
Dumating na rin po ang apat na refurbished UH-1 helicopters at 2 navy cutters.
Pangulong Aquino: Dumating na rin ang paunang mga M4 assault rifles na binili natin para sa
kasundaluhan. Sa mga susunod na buwan, ang kabuuang bilang ng baril na mapapasakamay
ng ating mga kawal: 50,629 units ng M4. Ang bonus pa: dahil sa maayos na proseso ng
procurement at tapat na pangangasiwa sa pondo, may savings tayo na mahigit 1.2 billion
pesos; itong savings ay ipinambibili na natin ng mas marami pang baril.
Pangulong Aquino: Nagbabago na rin nga po ang mukha ng ating kapulisan. Patunay po rito
ang 30 pulis, sa pangunguna ni Inspector Charity Galvez, na tumalo sa tinatayang 250 NPA na
sumugod sa kanilang presinto noong 2011... Mabuti nga po't naabot na ang 1:1 police to pistol
ratio, kaya't naisyuhan na rin ng bagong baril ang ating mga rookie policewomen
Pangulong Aquino: Pinapaigting pa natin ang pangangalaga sa seguridad ng taumbayan.
Simula ng ika-16 ng Hunyo ngayong taon, ipinatupad natin sa National Capital Region ang
Operation Lambat. Matapos nating gawing triple ang dami ng checkpoints at magsagawa ng
iba't ibang operasyon, ang resulta: 862 sasakyan at 29 mga baril ang nakumpiska natin.
Nakapag-serve tayo ng 587 warrants of arrest, na nagresulta sa pagkakaaresto ng 410
suspect.
Pangulong Aquino: Ibinalik din natin ang Oplan Katok para matiyak na ang may tangan ng
lisensyadong baril ay ang karapat-dapat lamang. 28,714 na bahay sa NCR ang kinatok ng mga
pulis para sa operasyong ito.
Pangulong Aquino: Pinapatunayan po natin, sa paninindigan at pagkakaisa, kayang linisin kahit
pa ang isang institusyong napakahabang panahon nang dinungisan ng katiwalian.
Pangulong Aquino: Matapos ang mahabang panahon ng hidwaan at napupurnadang
negosasyon, naibalik na natin ang tiwala. Pruweba po nito: Noong nakaraang Marso, nilagdaan
na ang Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro.
Pangulong Aquino: Wala pong nakakatangging napag-iwanan ang ARMM. Gusto po nating
bigyan ng pantay na pagkakataon ang lahat ng Pilipino, kaya nga dapat may boost up, para
naman maka-catch up ang ating mga kababayang nasa laylayan. Halimbawa, sa budget na
imumungkahi natin para sa 2015, 5.17 billion pesos mula sa budget ng DPWH ay nakalaan
para sa imprastraktura ng ARMM.
Pangulong Aquino: Kasalukuyan na po nating pinapanday ang panukalang Bangsamoro Basic
Law. Humihingi po tayo ng pang-unawa sa ating Kongreso ukol rito. Mahalaga pong maging
masusi ang paghimay natin ng bawat probisyong ilalatag. Sa abot ng ating makakaya,
isusulong natin ang isang panukalang batas na makatuwiran, makatarungan, at katanggap-
tanggap sa lahat.
