Singapore government said: “GST is the one that will give you, over the long term, a sustained revenue of sufficient amount that will take care of our expenditure needs, for healthcare, infrastructure, security”

I saw people defending the increase of GST from 7% to 9% that was announced by #MOFsg during #SGbudget and there were people saying that it’s to curb inflation 😂 you mean there was no inflation the past few years?

Singapore government said:
“GST is the one that will give you, over the long term, a sustained revenue of sufficient amount that will take care of our expenditure needs, for healthcare, infrastructure, security” 🙄

Healthcare?
Singapore is the only country in the world where the government earns from public healthcare as the #medishieldlife premiums collected is more than the claims every single year, do you know there’s also a CPF Basic Healthcare Sum of $54,500 on top of the CPF full retirement sum of $171,000, how many Singaporeans have $225,500 in their CPF account as of 2018?

Infrastructure?
Singapore is the only country in the world where the government does things like merging public transport companies in order to have a monopoly, have fare hikes yet not having adequate maintenance etc… with the latest report stating a 50.3% rise in net earnings to $47.1 million for the year ended Dec 31, 2017 because of the growth in revenue to $1.2billion, which is the fare hike that we’re experiencing?

Security?
Singapore is the only country in the world where the government has the internal security act that allows them to legally stalk its own citizens in the name of security, we allowed bomb maker Mas Selamat to escape from prison, we allowed robber David James Roach to escape canning, but if a girl born after 1990 tries to go overseas… we’ll make sure she’s deported back even though she did no wrong?

NO wealth tax 🤔 the Singapore government said:
“There are only so many handbags you can buy, only so many watches you can buy, only so many people who can afford those.”

By the way, in 2017
“The surplus was more than expected, about S$9.6 billion in total” 😑
A one time $100 to $300 for a 9% GST, and you believe they really care about you?
