5 most egregious broken promises by the PAP – it’s time to kick them out

Mr “New Taxes” Heng claims that the PAP always delivers on its promises. Really? Let’s do some fact-checking. Below are 5 of the most egregious broken promises made by the PAP which have made Singaporeans poorer. And for this, PAP deserves to be booted out this coming GE.

1) Your CPF will be returned at 55. Broken Promise No 1!

Our CPF has been virtually confiscated and now many Singaporeans will receive their last payment only if they live to 98 years old !

2) Your HDB will never go down in value. Broken Promise No 2!

Now Singaporeans know that under the PAP, their HDB flat will be worth zero and be taken back at the end of 99 years.

3) There is no need to increase the water price . Broken Promise No. 3!

The above statement was made by Vivian Balakrishnan in Aug 2015, about a month before GE 15. Less than 6 months later, the PAP hiked the water price by 30% and Indranee Rajah told Singaporeans to earn more so that they could meet the cost of living.

4) We have a 1st class healthcare system which is the envy of the world. Broken Promise No. 4!

Healthcare costs have become ridiculously inflated and many Singaporeans can not afford the health care they deserve and dread the prospect of falling ill because of the enormous financial burden it will place on them and family members. The only thing world class about Gan Kim Yong and the PAP system is the enormous profits they make on the “ Shields” such as Eldershield and MediShield. For ElderShield, over $3.3 Billion in premiums were collected and only about $300 million in claims paid out. It must be the best insurance business ever devised! The losers are the Singapore people whose Medisave were depleted by the exorbitant premiums.

5) If you study hard and get a good education, you will get good jobs. Broken Promise No. 5!

We have a whole generation of graduate poor. Many fresh graduates can’t find employment and are reduced to driving Grab or Gojek to eke out a living. Now Ong Ye Kung does not want more than 30% of our students to complete University and the PAP tells our young that a University degree will not guarantee a good job. Quite the reverse of what Lee Kuan Yew used to tell Singaporeans in his National Day Rally speeches in the 80s.

We are fast becoming the Grab and Gojek Nation when other Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have over 50% of their students finishing University. Studies have shown that in the knowledge era where a high premium is placed on innovation and creativity, a society needs more and not less graduates!

You can conclude yourself whether Singapore has a bright future under the PAP or whether continued PAP rule will lead to the accelerating decline of our Nation in the coming decades.

    bite the bullet, complete change is needed, give the opposition a chance.

    After all, Mao never had any experience being Chairman of PRC, Obama, never had experience being president of the US.

    Send the whites to the cleaners, kick out all the foreign shit, let’s make a new Singapore.

    Is there a reason for doing this way?

  • Unfortunately:

    Well said but unfortunately people still vote for PAP despite them saying they dun like PAP this and that. These people deserve all the bullies from PAP bcos they are selfish and arrogant. Till today people still believe in HDB property values will never come down. People still believe with PAP everything is fine.
    People still think that Changi airport is the most advanced, beautiful and best in the airport. I just came back from Hongkong via Lantau Airport,Changi is outdated and old. Jewel will be renamed as Jewel Cemetery where ppl can pay respect to all white uniform cronies. PAP has not idea to recover the economy.
    Worst is ppl still refused to admit that the world has changed and is changing every minute and second.
    Singapore is now far behind Guangzhou and chinese hardly use cash and using Alipay and Wechat, fast and efficient but we are still using. In times to come Sg girl graduates will work as maids or night places in China.

  • NotMyProblem:

    @Lim Tean; Some of these promises were made by the previous, previous PAP!

    This current PAP promised to revise the withdrawal ages to 62, 65, 70 until I don’t when! The was totally agreed by the members, they voted the PAP again.

    The value of HDB will never go down was also by the previous government. This government promised the value after 99-years will be zero. See how the people accept it this time.

    Minister Khaw already warned you that you cannot eat your degree, but people still must go to Universities all over the world. Compare to Malaysians, by percentage they have lesser degree holders, but they are smarter than Singaporeans.

    1st class healthcare system was referring to the high cost of medical care and how low is the government budgeted for it. Dying is cheaper than living. The medical bill kills you and not your illness.

    This PAP already promised GST will be increased by 2% as well as other new tariffs. See what will happen this coming GE!!

    GRC MINORITY REPRESENTATION IS FAKE – it is just a tool of backdoor piggybacking of Boh Liao into political arena.

    The so-called preservation intent of minority representation is HYPOCRITICAL – it is only relevant to PAPpypolitics at the gate of the poll. Once in, minority “representation” is tossed into the garbage bin.

    YET ANOTHER BROKEN PROMISE AND BROKEN LAW APPLICATION!!!

  • pap is doomed to run road:

    before Msia GE14, many said Dr Mahatir no chance.

    but what the Msian IBs did not know was the citizens wanted to know the truth about 1MDB. so the citizens voted PH and so najib and wife are now being drilled for their stealing S$m from citizens.

    so the same here in Spore. many say 70% sheep won’t budge. but surprise surprise surprise. 70% sheep also wants to know true state of affairs with gic temasick pap PA.

    when GE2019 results are announced and New Government forms, pap clown and wife and their S$m shall need to answer questions from New Government.

    clap clap clap. there is truly heaven under the sky and no human can BS its maker. clap clap clap. life is worth living after all, even in clown pap Spore.

  • Lie not on an evil bed:

    Say, “Whether you conceal what is in your hearts, or disclose it, God knows it all.” The Lord knows all that is in the heavens and all that is on earth. And God has power over all things.
    “On the Day when every soul shall be confronted with all the good it has done and all the evil it has done, it will wish there were a great distance between itself and its own evil. But God cautions you towards Himself. And the Lord is full of Kindness towards devoted hearts.”

    (Quran ch.3 v.29-30)

    Drawing salaries on par with CEO but not taking accountability like them. When economy is no good, blame Gulf war, Asia fnancial crisis, US mortgage crisis, Motherhood reason like Globalizstion, and lately PM4 reserve said US-China trade war. Hello, you are paid to give solutions. Not finding excuses.

    When the tide is high, it raises all boats. When the tide is low, the captain skills are critical.
