MALACANANG AND THE SENATE - HEADLONG INTO A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

Move over Ultra stampede news, here comes a big one.

Malacanang has just upped the ante on the EO 464 thing. The president is not giving permission to cabinet officers to appear at the Senate on Department budget hearings as well as the national budget hearings. Well then, who are going to testify about budgetary requirements? Some say that Malacanang has gone too far in clamping down the truth.

Where do we go from here? Headlong into a constitutional crisis, I believe.

The Supreme Court has to come out with a wise decision on the constitutionality of EO 464...and quickly! Or else, as we say in the streets, the shit will truly hit the fan.
