Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III couldn’t believe House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano’s gall in warning that the Senate would be to blame if the 2021 national budget is reenacted.

“The nerve! Passing the blame, it’s unacceptable!” Sotto told reporters Thursday (October 8) in a series of Viber messages when sought for comment about Cayetano’s remarks.

In a Facebook live video Wednesday (October 7), Cayetano said the House of Representatives should not be blamed in case the P4.5-trillion national budget for 2021 is not passed on time. He explained that there will only be a one-day delay in the Senate’s receipt of the general appropriations bill (GAB) as the House plans to pass it on third and final reading when session resumes on November 16.

Cayetano had the session suspended on Tuesday (October 6) amid the speakership row with Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco. The GAB was passed on second reading before the session was suspended but the long break also meant the House will wait for more than a month before approving on third and final reading.

Sotto dismissed as “palusot” (excuse) Cayetano’s insistence that the House squabble will not result in a delay in the 2021 budget’s passage.

“Ang tanong: Bakit ninyo kami dinadamay sa problema niyo?” he asked.
