Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) said Aquino's presidency would pave way for more difficulties and poverty, citing his pro-business agenda that include privatization. "Dadalhin tayo ni Noynoy sa landas ng lalong pahirap (Aquino will bring us into a more difficult situation). More privatization is not the cure. Noy's cure-all for the country's problems is privatization," said ACT national chairperson Antonio Tinio. "Our experience with the privatization of the energy and water has proven that this path mainly benefits the big foreign and local corporations at the expense of the people," Tinio added.

Former Gabriela representatives Liza Maza and Luzviminda Ilagan said Aquino's speech lacked discussion on policies about raising wages of the poor, providing low-cost health services, education, and housing for the poor. They added that the President failed to take a stand on the Reproductive Health bill and the Right of Reply bill that were controversial in the past Congresses. "Parang tinimbang ka ngunit kulang. From the perspective of the majority who are poor, there was no direct policy statement on how he can turn the economy around that will directly benefit the workers, farmers and urban poor," Maza said
