Binay said in a separate interview. Binay's proposed tax cut to benefit state workers By Helen Flores (The Philippine Star) | Updated March 1, 2016 - 12:00am 0 0 googleplus0 0 Binay, standard bearer of the United Nationalist Alliance, has vowed to exempt workers earning P30,000 and below from paying income taxes if he is elected. Binay, however, argued that what was more damaging to the country was the government's blatant disregard for the losses incurred by failures in collections of the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Bureau of Customs. The Vice President said the government is losing P230 billion every year because of the smuggling of agricultural products, P30 billion from oil smuggling and P12 billion from tobacco smuggling. To compensate for potential revenue losses resulting from the scrapping of income taxes, Binay is looking at selling government assets and the privatization of a number of government-owned and controlled corporations; approval of revenue-generating measures, including Fiscal Incentives Rationalization; fuel marking to fight oil smuggling and improvement in tax administration and collection efficiency. Binay said the government could generate more than the projected P30-billion loss from reducing income taxes once smuggling is abated.
The other senators who are members of the tribunal are Cynthia Villar (Nacionalista Party), Vicente Sotto III (Nationalist People's Coalition), Nancy Binay (United Nationalist Alliance), Juan Edgardo Angara (Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino) and Pia Cayetano (NP).
"I think it's 40-30-20 split, 40 percent to Grace, 30 percent to Binay and 20 percent to Mar," Osmeña said, adding the Vice President proved to have a strong following in Davao despite the fact that Duterte, during the 2010 presidential and vice presidential elections, campaigned for administration candidate Gilberto Teodoro.
Members of the SET include Carpio, as the chairman, and his fellow Associate Justices Teresita de Castro and Arturo Brion; as well as Senators Vicente Sotto III and Loren Legarda of the Nationalist People's Coalition; Paolo Benigno "Bam" Aquino of the Liberal Party; Pia Cayetano and Cynthia Villar of the Nacionalista Party and Nancy Binay of United Nationalist Alliance.
Senator Nancy Binay, Binay's eldest daughter and a member of UNA, said that she, too, was surprised by Tiangco's statement.
The senator is reported to be a viable challenger to Binay due to her strong survey showing. Recent surveys placed her second to Binay but she has yet to declare any political plans. Binay: I won't do that to a woman Pressed about Tiangco's statements, Vice President Binay sought to further distance himself from his political lieutenant's pronouncements. "Ayaw ko hong makisawsaw diyan, and unang-una mahal ko pa rin ho si FPJ," Binay said in reference to Poe's late father, actor Fernando Poe Jr. (I don't want to meddle with that, because, first, I still love FPJ.) Binay added that it is best that voters get to choose from a wide field of candidates. "Pangalawa, hindi ko ho ugaling, kababaeng tao pa naman, kumare ko pang buo iyan," Binay said. (Second, it is not my character to attack a woman, especially one who is my family friend.) The Binay camp has been sending mixed messages about Poe, highlighting a key problem in a campaign with multiple spokespersons, and with a candidate who easily gets peeved: messaging. (READ: Binay to launch party, ads despite freeze order) Binay reiterated this on Wednesday: "The word here is 'considering.' I did not approach her and say, 'Mare, can you be my vice president?' There was no opportunity to do that. While his spokespersons keep attacking Poe, Binay attempted to show his deep ties with her father. Binay again mentioned that he was FPJ's 2004 campaign manager, and was even with him at a Christmas party when the action star was rushed to the hospital in the days leading up to his death in December 2004. Binay said he even told FPJ, "Goodbye, my friend. Now, Binay said it saddens him that Senator Poe signed the partial Senate blue ribbon subcommittee report recommending plunder charges against him over the Makati parking building. Binay referred to FPJ's memory in questioning Senator Poe's statements about his reputation for corruption. Poe added that Binay, currently the top contender for the presidency in 2016, has a lot to explain in connection to the corruption allegations against him. Poe was one of the senators who signed the Blue Ribbon subcommittee report recommending the filing of plunder charges against Binay and several others in relation to the alleged overpriced construction of the Makati City Hall Building II. The 3 officials - Binay, Poe, and Roxas - are among the top contenders for the presidential race. Binay, who campaigned vigorously for Grace's late adopted father Fernando Poe's presidential bid in 2004, is a declared presidential aspirant for 2016.
These reports were mostly about the platforms of senatorial candidates, a rumored debate between administration candidate Ana Theresia "Risa" Hontiveros-Baraquel and UNA's Nancy Binay, as well as developments in the romantic life of re-electionist Senator Francis Escudero.
Among the Star's frequent news subjects were Miguel Zubiri and Nancy Binay for their views on such issues as the Sabah conflict and political dynasties.
