Why?

1. Despite having billions of budget surplus from each financial year but the gov intends to increase GST.

2. NUS & NTU having a combined reserve funds of $12 billion, university fees are still on the rise.

3. PUB has made steady profits in excess of over $100 million after gov grants for almost a decade but our electricity and water tariff keep increasing.

4. Fares adjusted upwards even when in Feb 2019, SBS Transit posted a 70% surge in net earnings, to a record $80.1 million profit.

5. Average cost of a 4 room HDB flat in 2000s was $180,000 (new), now it cost an average of $376,000. Double and a little more. In the last 20 years, cost of goods, materials and labour didnt increase by 100%.

So how did we reach to this stage?

1. Greed
2. Elitism
3. Plutocracy

    @Osman Bin Sulaiman
    Don’t anyhow say. Wait get POFMA by Ah Loong. When PAPigs say $1000 a month income can afford HDB, means HDB is very affordable okay? Also, heavily subsidized already. – So just take what PAPigs say as absolute truth for now. Unless when they get voted out and the new government is able to gather factual indisputable data to indict them.

    Despite collecting billions in COE and road tax alone, LTA extended street parking to 10pm. Every street is double yellow lined to prevent you from parking for free.

    PAP funds our roads or our road tax?

    Despite collecting billions in tolls by now yet SG drivers have to pay tolls at the checkpoints.

    Picture should be captioned; Hooray, big bonuses for us all!!

  • Why?Self grati/glorifcations,:

    These political scums needs a lot of money to self gratify n glorify themselves.

    It needs tremendous of money to serve their alien family with jobs, free education, gaining their awards of decorations for good services granted.

    It needs billions to let nfi nepotists to leam investment thru repeated negative investment as Amos le’Orrible kicked plp Yeo in his butts for failing to understand the rights n previlege of nepotic degits n their gorillas.

    It needs billions to cover the losses n the drainage of Citizen CPF n to feed reawaring LHY/LWL alledged n uncontested in Court of Law aka implying these allegations r true by decree jointly issued by three Pees And Poos PMs.

    It needs billions to generate million of tons of oily water by suka suka planned mega projects to benefit n accomodate their erotic desire of their alien talents aka trash of alien nation.

    It needs billions to provide bebefits n performace bonuses for themselves n the CBs aka polanpas to seal their leaks on what they r afraid to account for n Singaporeans to know.

    It need millions to sweeten the grounds for General election , more if kpkb escalates n the global tide of bootting ot politicam scums, shitheads n bastards.

    It needs billions to replenis the republic poggy bank just in case the mouths of CBs polanps leak for insufficient oily watery sealant!

  • Vote for SDP:

    @Osman, well articulated. Thank you for sharing the information.

    Govt has lost it’s usefulness to help Singaporeans.

    Besides greed, incompetency of Ex-Generals, Govt’s push for 10 Million population because they have committed to CECA to take in more village people and their families and with POFMA back-firing them, Singaporeans have lost confidence with the 4G leaders.

    Pinky is now shitting in his pants now as SDP is taking case against them in court.

    Suddenly, we notice so many articles against the Govt now. It clearly shows how Singaporeans have woken up to whack the Govt, as lunches are being stolen by aliens and monkeys from third world countries.

    Keep writing to expose them.

  • Rich government poor governmen:

    Why ?
    To build strong reserves,to protect Singapore during financial crisis like the 1997 & 2008 crisis and …..
    The government’s money is the people’s money. Without high savings and strong reserves, a small country like ours would not be able to enjoy a luxurious living now.
    Look at the exchange rate against many other currencies today. Our dollar keeps increasing in value.
    Let’s say we vote in a weak government and spend away all our savings and country’s reserves now.
    And our dollar depreciates to, for example, 1 SGD to 1 Ringgit.
    What will happen?
    Over 90 percent of our daily necessities are imported, so we will face hyperinflation.
    All the foreigners will run away. Many business will close because there are no workers. And we will be jobless.

    Another example.
    Let’s say our government is the best in the world.
    We have free housing, free food, free transportation and everything free, so Singaporeans don’t need to work.
    Is this a good thing?
    The factories and businesses are unable to find workers. They will close shop and move elsewhere and Because we have no goods and services to sell, how can we exchange them for food?

    In 2018, Singaporeans make more than 8 million trips by air only for holidays.If our dollar will to become 1 dollar to 1ringgit our overseas holidays will become a pipe dream.
    https://www.statista.com/statistics/755762/outbound-departures-singaporean-residents-mode-of-transport/
    Look at the queues at famous food outlets and many other luxuries we are enjoying now.

    The Singaporeans who buy cheap groceries outside Singapore, who understand our strong dollar is due to high savings and well managed economy and hard work of all Singaporeans that bring us these luxuries, they are grateful to our system.
    Those who are ignorant will always curse the government.

    So government’s money is people’s money.
    Rich government benefits Singaporeans.

    Don’t bother with comparing with China under CCP, they learned all the modern tricks from us. Get up to speed with what’s happening with China and the global anti Kleptocrats and anti CCP movement.
    You have to be careful to pick and read the right stuffs.

    Very soon such token pension will be gone as the communist party now shifted further towards the left and is taking over key “private” enterprises and manipulating the financial markets to grab cash.

    The country is running out of credits and is making funds repatriation difficult.
    Multinationals and financial institutions are leaving to cut their losses.

  • Elites & Natural Arsetocrats:

    Do more:
    Need to do more for the poor and the elderly retiree.
    Very hard for them to survive in this expensive Singapore.
    Have a heart…

    The SG heart got downsized as we move through the education system.

    We are taught to guard our lunches or steal someone else’s lunches, and that there is no free lunches in this Pisai country.
    The person who is able to beat the system and competition gets to pick the trophy.

    Disagree? Just take a good look at our PSLE school selection.
    The top students get to pick the school first regardless of their choices.
    Those with low scores can only pick what is left.
    This is the unequal system based on “meritocracy”, that do not see good education as universal.

    Don’t agree with unequal education system?
    It has been shown that those who do well are generally from better social economic families, who can afford to complement nature with nurture.
    Ask yourselves Why more affluent students congregate at elite schools?
    Why families created a multi-billions tuition industry?

    You must be a real dud to believe all schools offer same opportunities.

    Coming back, who allowed this pathetic state to happen for years already?
    Obviously the education system not only downsized the heart, but it downsized the brain as well.

    You will have better chance of regrowing the heart from outside.

  • support base can be expanded:

    //Despite having billions of budget surplus from each financial year but the gov intends to increase GST//

    aiyoh tax (not only GeeAssTee but any other tax or fee stream which can possibly be invented / created) as much as “possible” from “everyone else” so can have maximum ammunition ($$$) to distribute it back as much as “possible” to own white idiots and gang so that support base can be expanded or maintained as much as possible ??

    of course, all this is done “legally” ? when the white idiots have all the power, what else cannot be made legal right ? 4 = 5 and selected = elected and inside is not within, all very legal right when you have the power ?

  • I Know:

    Coz the cost recovery pricing model is applied to every public service and good: HDB flats, utilities, healthcare, education, etc. Profiting from your own pool of trapped citizens is very addictive. That’s why no PM or finance minister will ever change it. Only VTO might make them “review” such a pricing policy.

    Dear Mr Osman, have you ever posted your questions to your relatives, friends and colleagues? You won’t be surprised to find out many of them are indeed part of the 70%. They can agree with you about unfair price hikes, FTs taking over jobs of Singaporeans, Indian/Malay President etc., etc., but still, they are with the PAP…willingly stand for them and die for them.

    We dot know what there is in the Reserves – or if there are Reserves at all.
    Our beloved and true-blue President OTC (may be Rest in Peace) scared the sh*t out of the clowns and after that .. Indian became Malay.

    So I guess until the system collapses you will never know. Or until the government changes hands – which I do not believe will happen given the exteme number of a**-kissers voting for the wrong party.
