I almost fall off my chair when I read the headline on Straits Times.
'GST hike: How it will benefit the poor'
I would think its illogical even if its written as 'How it will not affect the poor'
Benefit? Come on.
" 'So why is the Government doing it?' Minister Tharman asked. The main reason: to help lower-income Singaporeans, and to do so systematically for the long term."
Why not just be frank? I will say "Because we want to lower the corporate tax to attract investments. Attract investments to create jobs. Create jobs for foreign talents so the economy can grow."
Are we living in a nation or a MNC?
