Statement of Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III

"Omnibus motion only applies to them not the entire Congress. Palusot lahat yan. Bottom line is they touched something they shouldn't have AFTER RATIFICATION. What they did affected their colleagues that's why they complained to us, aside from the fact that LBRMO saw a red flag. But all their talks are now water under the bridge. It's all in the President's hands. I washed mine. At the end of the day the Senate exercised its power to scrutinize and challenge what is spurious in the budget. It also proves that the Senate is still and will remain independent. The Senate will let the President decide on the submitted budget."
