GST increase no longer an issue
According to Sue Ann Chia, the 2% GST increase apparently is not turning out to be a political hot potato. Now is this good news or bad news?
I think the people will find the 2% increase not that painful. But what is hurting them will be the other increases that are not related to the GST increases, and much much more than the affordable 2% increase.
Now why are there so many increases and in double digits? These are what that will hurt the people's pockets.
