Poe on Cayetano’s ‘sipsip’ remark: "Name-calling cheapens the debate"

Senator Grace Poe who chairs the Senate Public Services Committee has just conducted a hearing which tackles the renewal of a legislative franchise of the country’s biggest network.

A few days back House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano warned the Senate conducting a hearing on the franchise renewal is a direct violation of the Constitution which calls for all franchise grants shall emanate from the lower house before it can be tackled in the upper house (senate).

“You know when I deal with counterparts from the House, at least, me personally and I think many of my colleagues, we try to maintain a level of respect and decorum because name-calling cheapens the debate,” Poe said in an interview on ABS-CBN News Channel

“When you start name-calling, kung gumagamit ka ng mga salitang ganon, ibig sabihin nawawalan ka ng basehan para sa tamang argumento,” she added.
(When you start name-calling, if you use those kind of words, that means you’re running out of basis for the right argument).

The House Speaker a few days back questions the constitutionality of the Senate hearing which is in direct violation of the rule in the Constitution that states all franchise bills should be first emanate from the lower house of Congress beforeit can be tackled by the upper house or Senate.

But Poe a known ABS-CBN ally clarified that her committee would not yet release a report on the matter and will wait for the similar measure be approved by the House of Representatives.
