As the worries mount

People are getting worried. There are all kinds of situations, conditions and permutations that will make any kind of mean testing inadequate. But we are behaving like the military. Once a decision has been made to go ahead, just go ahead, right or wrong, good or bad. Or else there will be a lost of faith, a breakdown in command and a sign of weakness in leadership. With whatever scheme that is going to be introduced, will C Class patients pay more or the same as B2 or B2 paying the same as B1 etc? Has the govt forgotten its primary duty of providing healthcare and let the people choose what they can afford? Or it is now the responsibility of the govt to determine who should eat what the govt thinks they can afford? Why is the govt thinking that it is its right to decide how people spend their money?

I do not think there is anything to worry about. Everything will be fine. Singaporean govt will not allow anything bad to happen to the Singaporeans. Whatever happens, all will be well. You just wait and see. People will grumble a little and when they get used to the new ways, they will forget and be happy again. They trust the govt to do the best for them.

Nothing in Singapore belongs to you, not even your money. Accept this premise and then you can understand why the government is doing what they are doing, and get away with it too.

we should privatise all hospitals. then no need to worry about subsidies. just price according to what the market can pay. it will be more efficient that way. and the shareholders will be happier.
