The Makabayan Bloc is planning to ask help from the Supreme Court in order to stop the implementation of the Tax Reform Law.

Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate said that their primary argument is the alleged railroading of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law.

Zarate explained that the legality of the Tax Reform law is questionable since it was approved even if the Lower House had no quorum, and no copy of the legislation was given to the lawmakers.

The congressman warned that more 15 million Filipino indigents will be affected by TRAIN due to the expected increase in the price of the basic commodities and services.
