Moving to strengthen the social compact

I refer to the Editorial, “Moving to strengthen the social compact” (ST, Oct 13).

It is understandable that when new political leadership takes place, the new leader wishes to gather diverse feedbacks from the grounds and the general feelings from the people and grassroots.

However, for ensuring social compacts are firmly weaved and moulded seamless or fruitful, earnest advices and suggestions could be the effective panacea.

Nonetheless, it is expected that Singaporeans of different age groups have encountered different aspects of difficulties in life, work and family, as well as having different breadth and depth of expectations or anticipation.

Healthcare issues

The complexity of the existing healthcare insurance schemes (such as MediShield Life, CareShield Life and ElderShield Life) which in terms of eligibility, scope of coverage, subsidy terms and conditions of claim, quantum of claims and payouts make it quite difficult for Singaporeans age 65 and above to comprehend, even some young adults also find them difficult to digest. Thus, could the system of healthcare insurance scheme be simplified and integrated into one national insurance scheme for the healthcare system?

Most seniors are very worried about the surging medical costs, longer consultation time at various polyclinics and the shortages of hospital beds especially while you are having or being diagnosed with acute illnesses.

In addition, could the relevant authority extend greater flexibility for the usage of Medisave. For example, bigger amount to be allowed for use in radiology instead of the present cap of $300 per annum.

Employment issues and job security

Young working adults especially the PMETs find their pressing concerns are acute job competitions among locals and the inflated numbers of foreign talents. Hence, they strongly feel the room of job opportunities and prospects are in swift shrinkage. In short, they experience acute job insecurity.

Rising costs of living and swelling inflation

Most Singaporeans find their monthly net earnings/revenue shrunk due to swelling inflation. For examples, price increases of daily food essentials or basic foods, rising transport expenses and fluctuations of petrol prices.

Young working couples also find hard to sustain costs of early childhood education for their young children, and suggesting that its subsidies should be more.

Housing issues

Nowadays, a lot of Singaporeans find prices of various types of HDB flats are relatively much higher than their parents time. Besides, most young couples of first-timer buyers find the waiting time for their BTO flats are too long, sometimes its waiting duration as long as 5 years.

    Yes, we must strengthen our social compact.

    1. We must NOT help people who screwed around.
    With freedom comes responsibility.
    Want to screw around ? Take responsibility for the consequences.

    Chua Soon Ho (Jackie Chua) screwed around, never contribute a single cent for his son upbrining…

    2. We must STOP financial assistance to people who use state welfare to screw around.

    P Against People:
    Now we know PAPPY condition to help with a few dollars: No SEX.

    An old man cannot even cut a few meals to have some fun. Cruel pappies. Only pappies are allowed to have big Palm– to grab fresh mangoes.

    Palm is not on state financial assistance. Period.

    Alamak, “Free Rider” still spewing your rubbish here ah? LOL.
    Wah seh! “Strengthen Social Compact” wor … BIG words man! LOL.
    Goons like you velly “sukportive” of the PAPies flowery-but-meaningless lip service rhetoric. Yes?/No? LOL.

    I oso can write wonderful speeches for that Ah Loong Clown Prince to read from his pulpit lah :
    “Sinkies, let us all UNITE together and stand together (under PAPies greeeeaaaat LEEdarship supposedly ;), and build a wonderful home for you & me (*silently* but mostly ME & LEEgime only)”. LOL.

    Then after that hor, all the SSS Sinkies must clap hands and all shout together 3x now: “Pay And Pay! Pay And Pay! Pay And Pay itz zee BEST!” LOL.

    After the stage show is over. Ah Loong go back home to pump his Fugly old hag Empress Dowager, while all the SSS Sinkies go back to their own bizness as usual daily routine of Pay And Pay taxes/GST/ERP/CPF/HDB/COE etc. …. until the NEXT wonderful speech from the “LEEgime” during their next GE.
    Rinse, Wash & Repeat. LOL.

    Oso hor… you should eat your own puppy food. So, I counter your numbered points as follows:

    1. We must NOT help people like YOU who screw around taking “Xperimental mRNA Jabs”.
    Want to screw around with your own health? Then YOU take responsibility for the consequences.

    Oh btw, last time “Free Rider” grudgingly admitted to me that he took full dose of the “Xperimental mRNA Jabs”, but AVOIDED answering me about his “Boosters”. LOL.

    So “Free Rider”, how many Booster Jabs have you taken so far? If not yet, why not? You “Free Rider” lapdog don’t trust your beloved PAPies meh? LOL.
    Don’t be SHY to answer me or use same boring old statement of “For you to know and for me to find out hor”, ok? LOL.

    2. We must STOP financial (medical) assistance to people like YOU who took the “Xperimental mRNA Jabs”. This is state welfare too.

    IF YOU “Free Rider” get serious health problems or die from side effects of the “Xperimental mRNA Jabs”, then too bad.
    Its YOU DIE, your own bizness. Period. “Free Rider” agree? Yes?/No? LOL.

    “It is understandable that when new political leadership takes place, the new leader wishes to gather diverse feedbacks from the grounds and the general feelings from the people and grassroots.”

    Understandable, my foot.
    After being a minister for so long, if he knows nothing about this, he should step down and refund his salary.

    Tech: Agreed. BTW, who is this “new political leadership”? You mean that namesake PM-to-be? Well, he can wait loooong looong to be the seat warmer because the Supremo will not be stepping down soon. Remember Supremo said he will step down after ONLY the C19 has been taken care of, and ask yourself if the C19 is EVER going to be taken care of, especially when the policy is to be living with the virus?

  • xoxo:

    Strengthen *OUR* social COMPACT.
    Social compact is like a pact ,an agreement between govt and the people.But,does the govt keep to the agreement.
    In the first place,is there a MUTUAL AGREEMENT that has mutually taken place?
    Or,does the govt forced things into our throats and expect us to swallow them wholesale even if it works against our COMMON interests,sgs’ COMMON GOOD?
    Take the way FT POLICY has been implemented.
    Increasing GST at a time when many *sgs* have lost their livihoods and COL already rising incessantly.
    Not truly helping us to ensure our CPF savings are sufficient for retirement.
    Plenty more but worst of all is to TAKE $1000 BILLION from reserves accumulated by sgs and giving them a token $600 when even non-sgs with high salaries are granted many times more than the said $23.5K per capita grant.

    Is marginalising and disadvantaging sgs a way to better social compact?
    i sincerely dont think so.

  • BIG READ: Stop the PAP Steal:

    Social compact is a small subset tt the PAP likes to have SG is such a big thing.

    Most critical in the largest scheme of things in SG, for SG is NATIONALISM.

    Nationalism, nationalistic SGpns is what PAP DETEST the most hate the mostest, and therefore the PAP finds nationalism in SG destroys their existence, their power.

  • Trust only myself:

    “Nowadays………….prices of various types of HDB flats are much higher…..”
    Now then know, Singaporeans sleeping for past few decades?

    In the mid seventies, a re-sale 3-rm flat was selling for $7K, what could be the price of new 3-rm flat then?

    Now what is the price for new 3-rm flat? Easily more than $300K?

    Even if wages were lower in the seventies, what would be the ratio of flat price vs annual income then and now……you will be shock now is so high.

    What you don’t know is when flat prices are getting higher and higher, the liars income also shot through the roof……

    So, when are YOU “Free Rider” going to get your Boosters ah? Why?? Scared to or embarrassed to answer me ah? LOL.

    Don’t talk about other countries such as ROC or Japan or other citizens lah. You claim you are Sinkieporelang, then why keep going into distractions on other countries or irrelevant topics lor.

    My family members took 2 jabs and as we are healthy, we took the decision that 2 jabs were enough and we took the decision to take greater precaution measures and prepared to bear the consequences.

    And oh SSS, your Singaporlang are free riders thru and thru.

    P Against People:
    You are such a dictator. For $12, you want control over a person’s life. Ask yourself, do you want to be a slave for $12?

    Singaporean R Free Rider: Good luck to you trying to motivate Singaporeans who are largely
    1. whiner,
    2. lazy,
    3. unmotivated and
    4. unrealistic.

    One old man live in an old old HDB flat in the east had cancer and asked for financial aid to pay for the medicine. (one pill cost about SGD 12 at that time)

    We agreed to help with one simple conditions:
    1. change his lifestyle.
    (no more smoking, no drinking beer, healthier diet etc)

    He agreed. One month later, we revisited him and his wife told us he has not change.

    He continue his usual self, smoking, drinking, eat mutton soup… etc.

    Question:
    Should you care and help people who :
    1. don’t care about his own health condition,
    2. don’t give a fiack for your goodwill assistance
    3. don’t want to take responsibility for his life ?

  • SINGAROAR:

    Is there a new leadership? Does anyone truly think that even if LW becomes the next PM, LHL will still not remain his boss by being the senior Minister? Change can only happen if those who have finished their two terms in power relinquish all positions and allow the next leader to take over. However Asia seems to be suffering from politicians who just do not want to give up power and go away. Since we are not violent and shoot them down ourselves we can only hope that death will remove them.LHL,the many corrupt UMNO members in Malaysia,the military in Thailand and Myanmar etc,only their death s can free the citizens.They will not give up power and dollars on their own. They certainly are serving the respective states or citizens.

    Ahh… so, you a “Free Rider” in Sinkiepore system, initially TRUSTED PAPies to get your 2 “Xperimental mRNA Jabs”, but then later change your mind on Boosters? Your M0H still encourage YOU to go take Boosters leh. So how? LOL.

    Why you scared ah or just ADMIT it that YOU “change your mind” and no longer trust your beloved “Gahmen” now on the need for Boosters yah? LOL.

    Again, don’t try your cheap trick distractions, talking about other “Oppies” like LT lah. We are talking about Jab status and WHY you never f0low M0H advice to take more Boosters yah? LOL.

    This shows even YOU yourself (a PAPies PLP lapdog Free-Rider) oso become “scaredy-cat” and having 2nd-thoughts on Boosters, thus you IGNORED your MIW Masters’ encurgement to get your boosters. Yes?/No? LOL.
    Orrr… must inform PAPies MP to tell them that this PLP “Free Rider” oso become turncoat (follow Oppies behavior) to tell PAPies to go fly kite on their boosters, izzit? LOL.

    You die liao… you “Free Rider” next time won’t get free packet of “Mee Siam Mai Hum ” from your PA CC cult members during next “General eRection” rally session liao. LOL.

    Oh btw “Free Rider”, you better don’t say so fast that you & family are still “healthy” or talk so BIG with your “Yah-Yah” attitude about you “prepared to bear the consequences” hor.

    Actually, YOU die faster may be a “good thing” in place like Sinkiepore with super HIGH medical CO$T hor.
    Sekali, you or family kenna strokes, half-body paralyzed, go blind or deaf or get cancer then worse lor… die slowly & painfully in expensive Sinkiepore med system.

    There is now high escalation in cases of SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome).

    These SADS deaths do not seem to show any outward symptoms, but the damage could be slowly accumulating inside your body e.g.)
    - from growing blood clots and micro-clots
    - lipid nanoparticles accumulating in your testicles / ovaries / bone marrow /liver /crossing the blood-brain barrier to cause neurological damage etc.,
    - the spike protein itself is a TOXIC substance, so your own body’s T-Cells will ATTACK those hijacked cells still producing these Spike Proteins, so MORE & MORE of your cells will get “suicided” and this causes either sepsis, organ failure over time and/or metastasized into CANCER as your cells DNA becomes corrupted AFTER you got the foreign-injected mRNA sequences.

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/Yzi3wDPh6E3x/

    So “Free Rider”, hope you realize what you said and that you really “can bear the consequences” lor. Good Luck.

  • Health worry:

    Many Seniors are worry that the basic insurance provided cannot take care of their medical needs.
    They have more medical problems at this age.
    However the additional insurance premium needed increase for them every year.
    Worst it has to be paid by Cash when they are not working.
    Need to tweet the Policy regarding this.
    Also should differentiate for those who has paid for many years premium without any claims.
