Government should bear the increase in health care cost

It is unwise for the Government to try and shift the burden of health care cost to the citizens. Already, the citizens are paying a lot of direct and indirect taxes and are not able to meet the cost of living.

A wise leader will use some of the budget surplus, which is estimated to be more than $30 billion a year based on IMF conventions, to meet the increase in cost, rather than expecting the citizens to chip in and shoulder the cost, as suggested by PM Lee.

Is he out of touch with what is happening on the ground?
