I told you so

Yesterday I was talking about govt collecting a lot of money from the people and the people can expect this to be paid back. And HELP is everywhere. Today, the announcement is like Christmas is here, 8 months early. $3b payout will be given to all Singaporeans from last year's budget surplus. What this amounts to is that a 3 room HDB occupants could get about $5k while a 5 room could also get around $4.9k. Bee tang man. Time for celebration and say a big thank you to the govt. This is sharing the wealth of the nation to everyone. No where in the world got such a thing. Only uniquely Singapore. Now stop complaining please.

This simply means they took (at least) 3 billion more than they should have, doing god-knows-what to the capital structure in the cuntry.

A better, logical way would be to reduce the GST and fuel taxes... but of course then there is not so much "political" mileage. The gov t "looks better" to the average idiot, when the govt "gives away" money (which didn't belong to them in the first place).
