Govt tackling cost of living concerns: too little, too late?

Now that the General Election is looming, the government assures us that it’s aware of concerns over rising cost of living.

An example cited is the Grow and Share Package announced in the Budget.

While this is helpful, it’s too little too late as for years people have expressed concerns over the rising cost of living. Besides, people are not naive. The package is an election sweeter after all along with the sudden spurt in estate upgrading recently announced.

So the assurance will be greeted with some scepticism by many people. 

Just read the outpourings of concerns on the Internet and you’ll realize the gravity of the situation. I know some quarters tend to dismiss netizens as irrational and misguided, and their concerns as gibberish.

Can’t blame really as the rantings can seem overboard at times.

But do so at your own peril.

The recurring outrage is that while  ordinary folks are groaning under the burden of the rising cost of living, Ministers, already the highest paid politicians on Planet Earth, see it fit to award themselves further remuneration. 

If I were them I’ll find it hard to look at my constituents in the eye.

 You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
– Abraham Lincoln

  1. Abraham Lincoln could not fool all the people all the time, neither can the PAP but is 66% enough?
