Drilon blasts Pernia: Yabang mo ah!



Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon on Wednesday (May 31) has slammed National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Chair Ernesto Pernia for looking down on lawmakers on the issue of taxation.

“We do not claim expertise but certainly we know something about the budget and if Pernia’s statement is accurate, I find that a little arrogant. Ang yabang naman niya! Labingsyam na taon ko ng tinitingnan ang budget eh, hanggang wala pa akong natutunan?” he fumed.

“Hindi naman siguro. Sinabi nya ba ‘yan? Eh ‘di sabihin mo, such arrogance!” Drilon added.

“Medyo mayabang lang ang dating ano?” Drilon commented.

Drilon, practically reminded the NEDA chief that lawmakers are elected by the people and are expected to reflect the public’s welfare whenever they express opinions on matters that concern the general public.

“Pernia would not have the monopoly of wisdom, I must say,” he said.
