Khaw Boon Wan: Get Ready For Higher Transport Fares To Alleviate Public Transport Subsidies

It has already begun. Singaporeans have not even began to enjoy their GST gift from the government, news of rising cost for Singaporeans have hit the news. Transport Minister and Henry Thia lookalike Khaw Boon Wan said in Parliament on Monday with a straight face that the government is currently subsidizing 30% of public transport operations, and that Singaporeans should expect higher fares for public transport to keep subsidies in check.

DID PAP INFLATE MEDICAL COSTS TO MAKE ITS SUBSIDIES LOOK GOOD?

Every instance of PAP helping citizens results from PAP first helping itself, ie, PAP KPIs are based on increasing prices of goods and services. For example, PAP increased HDB grants only after it had increased public housing prices multiple times the grants. It’s the same with education, healthcare, etc. This can be confirmed by our polyclinic bills.

GOVT INFLATING CONSULTATION FEES TO MAKE MEDICAL SUBSIDIES LOOK GOOD?

The consultation fee for a neighbourhood private doctor is usually between $20-$30. Public polyclinic is supposed to be cheaper than private clinics. How in the world can a public medical service be much expensive? It's either the authorities are inflating the consultation fee and then makes it look like the gov is heavily subsidizing our medical cost or our doctors working at polyclinics are being paid super scale salary that rival the private sectors. I know the latter isn't true.

Filipino New Citizens Abusing PCF Childcare Subsidy Scheme Meant For Low Income Singaporeans

My friend is baffled. She doubt our government allows low income earners to be Singapore citizens. In addition, if they are really earning low income, why do they have a maid and a car? However, as the new citizen (former filipino citizen) showed her CPF contribution which is very low, she is entitled to the childcare subsidy and thus they only pay about $8.00 per month when others are paying $650.00 per month at the PAP PCF childcare centre. She is also angry as SIngaporeans who are really low-income earners have to pay $35 per month after subsidies.
