I am capable of resolving all the issues for rapid growth for Singapore with a 5 year deficit plan, or else I will support the opposition for policy changes, the PAP cannot have a majority of 90% in Parliament Contributed by Oogle.
Why 5 years you ask? Because solving the loss of the people’s CPF monies will run into billions, and cannot be done overnight, the PAP government is desperate or else they will not be on a campaign to “tax and tax” it’s citizens if it has enough resources. Actually if I can solve the entire world’s problems, billions of $ is chicken feet for me. Even if you squeeze the blood out of every citizen’s bones, there still will not be enough to solve all of your problems, let’s face facts. More than 55 years of nation building, LKY is on the right path and I respect him for that, what happens after that is a disaster, and needs to be put right.
You want to mass import foreigners and talents to replace Singaporeans? It will never work as foreigners will use Singapore as a base for resources to move to better countries, those who are talents will never use Singapore as a base because the market is too small, so what benefits can Singapore give? Fundings for student grants with the hope of retaining talents? Fat hope, only you will get 0.001% results as the prospects are better elsewhere. And so the brain drain continues.
You want students to come and learn to pay high class fees what can you give in return? Do you lead in technology like the US and China? Graduates who take up your courses can get High paying jobs? What type of collaboration you have with foreign institutions that can guarantee you have the latest technologies here to train graduates with ready High paying jobs in the industry? You will fail as students will realise you cannot help them get a decent paying job after getting into debt with hundred of thousands in course fees and tuition.
You want Singapore be a land of opportunities you must help everyone solve their problems and create paths of progress and you start by investing in your own human capital. If your own citizens do not succeed what type of stories can you tell? You will just be a bridge everybody used.
If you want Singapore to succeed, go back to the LKY era and adopt policies that benefit all not only the elites. With the highest cost of living in the world, decent working population will all chose to leave Singapore. Nobody will have the “Swiss standard of Living” dream. What you have behind are the very rich who will come here because it is a tax haven, money launders, gamblers and all those who think they can escape all kinds of crime with money.
The Singapore Branding has now gone as China overtakes all to be the most advanced economy in the world. Ask any chinese citizen during the LKY era and they all respect Singaporeans, now all they do is laugh at Sigaporeans for the mess we are in. Do we need another generations to see our declining fate?
Dare to challenge me? The PAP government better win a majority or else your control of every citizen’s CPF monies will be fought in the United Nations and it cannot be used to fund anything, I will make sure IMF/World Bank will reject all applications for credit. Do not listen to ne and I will twist all your arms until you cannot function at all, then the PAP government will be totally useless.
Bring back LKY type policies and everybody is able to achieve a “Swiss Standard of Living”
HDB. You charge market prices, make sure every citizen can get income from HDB flats and not a liability. Bring back HUDC policies so that every HDB flat can be privatised in future. At the end of the 99 years lease, owners can sell back to developers so the value is not zero.
CPF. Change all the stupid rules to allow the withdrawal at age 55 in stages over 5 years. There is many wrong policies that cause hardship to everybody.
Using Medisave to pay for insurance so that everyone can afford healthcare education and housing. National insurance should not have a deterence to pre-existing conditions. There is no such thing that you must lose two limbs, two eyes before you can make a claim. Hospitals should not deny any Singapore citizen because they do not have Medisave, those who fall under the cracks can be covered under a fund and medical insurance.
You do not need to fund anybody for education or healthcare. It is for show only especially to foreign students. From childcare to secondary school everyone can fund themselves by allowing withdrawal from CPF and only require you to fund higher education by 50%.
Once you change all the rules, everyone can afford to do everything themselves, eveything the government tells you is rubbish.
Change GST tax to a VAT tax of 10% for luxury goods. By doing this the cost of living in Singapore will be lowered and I do not see a need to spend millions on promotions or attract FDI, this will create billions of income in FDI and indirectly push up the entire Sinapore economy, everything else the Singapore government tells you is rubbish.
You do not need COE to control the car population in Singapore. By using GSP Electronic Road pricing that is the deterent to control any traffic in any city. Do not tell me rubbish. And the income can easily help you fund any traffic management centres like islandwide AI cameras with facial and character recognition.
Jobs should have a Singaporean first policy, what you are doing is ineffective with so many loopholes, I myself want to disappear from Singapore, not to mention the rest of Singaporeans.
All these may not derive income immediately but with a budget deficit for 5 years, whatever you invest can be recovered, especially we are so rich we do not need to touch our reserves. What a stupid idea. The biggest problem for Singapore is not the lack of money, but everything the government is trying to do is to squeeze blood from every Singaporeans, who cannot pay for anything.
