More army bases than hospitals in S’pore

Are army bases more important than citizens’ health? Face the fact, Internet is defeating Singapore Propaganda House. They have been in power because of their grip on the media. What problems? All the problems and the evil side of PAP are being brushed aside by the devilishly clever Singapore Propaganda House. Reading the Singapore Propaganda House’s depiction of the 50 years of PAP rule is like watching an Indian movie, where the heroes are always right and they always win. The result? Singapore is now becoming a third world country. The worst part is their inept performances are being rewarded with monstrously huge salaries beyond our imagination. What kind of leaders are we having in Singapore?

Looking Like A War Zone

Speaking at the Singapore Anglican Community Services 100th Anniversary Charity Gala Dinner in Dec 2013, Lee Hsien Loong made the dubious claim that more social spending does not mean better results. As an example, he pointed out that the Americans spend more on healthcare than anybody else in the world, 18% of GDP. Singapore budgets only a minuscule 4% of our GDP for healthcare, and our life expectancy is longer and infant mortality rates are lower. The difference is that the cost of staying alive here is depleting our own savings intended for retirement needs. Unlike in America, there's no social security here.

It seems that this is one of the latest trends happening in Singapore where “Things Are Falling Apart!” Realy langgar!

Dr Tan has worked as a GP in the heartlands for the past 19 years. He is also one of the authors of the Singapore Democratic Party’s healthcare plan.

KHAW, WHAT WERE YOU DOING WHEN YOU WERE THE HEALTH MINISTER?

While you were heading the Ministry of Health, WHAT WERE YOU DOING to allow such a situation to arise? You did not even add 1 single hospital bed despite the millions of FTs your government imported. This is about the ill and sick and you call yourself a good Buddhist? Are you not afraid of Kama for the suffering you caused to these ill and sick people due to your gross negligent on the job which you demanded to be paid in millions of dollars a year?

Hospitals out of bed, again

This is, however, not the first time public hospitals face a shortage of hospital beds for their patients. In 2010, similar reports have surfaced. Mr Khaw Boon Wan, the Health Minister then, said Singapore will never be caught in such predicament again. Mr Khaw once described that the opening of Jurong General Hospital (even with the closing down of Alexandra Hospital) would bring in an additional 400 beds to the local hospitals in 2014.
