Netizen thumbs down Senator Poe’s traffic mgmt. bill in lieu of emergency powers, says just face-saving “palusot” after severe public backlash

After Malacanang withdrew its request for emergency powers, Senator Grace Poe suddenly released a statement saying to the effect that a Senate panel will now look at crafting a new bill that could solve the country’s traffic crisis. [Manila Bulletin]

Poe told reporters including Manila Bulletin that she respected the Palace decision to withdraw, saying they can choose not to pursue the special powers blah, blah.

“Pwede naman nilang i-atras, pero meron naman kaming pagkakataon na ayusin pa rin ang isang plano para magkaroon ng traffic management.”

Poe added, “Basta ako, meron namang mga pagkakataon na puwedeng gawin, ‘yong pangalan hindi lang emergency pero still traffic solution. ‘Yon naman ang aming ginagawa.”

However, if you asks netizen blogger and Ateneo alum Ermin Garcia,this is just Senator Grace Poe’s face-saving excuse after the severe public backlash for denying Malacanang’s request of emergency powers for President Duterte.

Garcia remarked that Poe’s arrogance has clearly boomeranged and her name is now synonymous to the daily sufferings of the commuting public that passes through EDSA.

PALUSOT NI POE – Because nag withdrew na ang DOTr sa request for emergency POWER, naiwan si Sen Poe na walang solution sa EDSA.

Ito ang face -saving palusot niya:

“Meron naman kaming pagkakataon na ayusin pa rin ang isang plano para magkaroon ng [maayos na] traffic management. Puwede pa naman kasi na iba lang ang pangalan, pero consolidation pa rin ng mga kailangan nila.”

“Kasi, ‘di ba, maganda lang pakinggan emergency, pero hindi naman ito martial law. This is about traffic management. Lahat ng kailangan nila: ‘yung right of way, procurement, pati na rin ‘yung traffic plan ng mga local government. “

“Lahat iyan puwedeng ipagsama-sama pa rin sa bill na ‘yon, iba lang ang pangalan,” Poe said.”Meron naman kaming pagkakataon na ayusin pa rin ang isang plano para magkaroon ng [maayos na] traffic management. Puwede pa naman kasi na iba lang ang pangalan, pero consolidation pa rin ng mga kailangan nila.”

AYAN NAG BOOMERANG ANG KAYABANGAN NIYA. ANG PANGALAN NIYA NA ANG NAKATATAK SA ARAW ARAW NA SAKIT NG ULO SA EDSA.
