    I think the added tax is fair enough naman.

      Yup. It sounds fair. For people who crap money out of their asses. In case you forgot, there’s also a planned increase on fuel tax by upto Php 9.00/L if i’m not mistaken. That’s more than double than the current tax per litter by 2019. If fuel price increases, transport cost and PUV fairs will increase, this will also lead to increases in prices for basic commodities. So yeah, it sounds fair.
