Liberal Party senatorial candidate Paolo Benigno "Bam" Aquino, a cousin of President Benigno Aquino III, on Saturday said it has never been hard for him to live a simple life.
In the "Bagito o Beterano? The DZMM Halalan 2013 Forum", the 35-year-old Aquino said if he wins the race in May, a senator's salary would not be a problem to him and his family.
"Mamuhay ng simple. 'Di naman ho 'yan bago sa atin," he said.
"Marami tayong mga kababayang namumuhay sa mas maliliit na sweldo. Kung kaya ho nila, dapat mas kaya ho nating mga senador," Aquino continued. -- DZMM, February 9, 2013
