"Meron akong soft heart sa reelectionist na kasama namin, whether from the majority or minority bloc kasi nakasama ko na sila and alam ko how they work, ang work ethic nila," Lacson said  in the weekly Senate press forum.
"Sila ang laging nariyan, nag-aaral, nagde-defend ng bill so kabisado namin sila," he said.

Mar Roxas is an “asset” 

Mar Roxas is making a political comeback from his 2016 lost in the presidential elections, where he placed second to incumbent and now sitting President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
"He’s a good addition kasi sa acumen niya. Marami tayong bills na nagre-refer na makatulong sa economy, sa development. So he’s an asset to say the least na maging senator come 2019," he said.

Cleared of corruption in Yolanda Funds
    
Lacson clears Mar Roxas the former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary from corruption allegations linked to the onslaught of Supertyphoon Yolanda in 2013.
"We would just like to correct that very wrong impression na si Sen. Roxas parang abused the funds," Lacson said.
"Huwag naman ibato sa kanya ang Yolanda funds because he never took advantage. There was no way for him to have that opportunity to take advantage," the senator said.

"Wala naman talaga siyang kinalaman sa pondo ng Yolanda except ang DILG [Department of Interior and Local Government] nag-provide ng cash assistance sa LGU and dumaan sa kaniya," he said.
