    I don't get what the problem is.

    Do you expect prices to remain the same forever? Prices increasing too fast for your linking? Or...?

    You mean this is not true?

    That no Singaporean would be denied medical care because of inability to pay?

    Can you prove that this is not true?

    Do you know how much income tax the average Australian pays?

    What is the income tax rate in Singapore?

    Or is it that in Australia one had already paid medical bills even before one got sick?

    Free? Where does the money come from?

    What's the apparent turn off? That statement seems politically correct.

    of course, our politicians are trained to be 'politically correct'.

    btw, this statement may be politically correct, but, in reality, i think that ground reaction does not welcome it with open arms, rightly or wrongly.

    What is your beef about?

    Using your spinal cord instead of your brain?

    If you are not questioning that statement, what then is the turn-off?

    Ah yes, you are only using your spinal cord.

    From what i know, income tax at its best in Australia is 40% for high earners, the average is 20% for the average joes.

    Com'on DR., you do pay income tax don't you? For Sg, it is staggered % as well from 3.75% to 21% depending on income. You can check here

    Of course nothing is for free in this world, but If I am an average joe, paying for less tax, and still have the benifits of medical, would'nt I be happy ?

    Hi doc. No offence but this is NOT true. I can prove it. Contact me if needed.

    At a particular gov hospital, terminally ill patients have to pay up before they can collect their medication.

    Unfortunately, that does not mean the quote is not true.

    They can certainly raise rates and also be more generous with the assistance side at the same time.

    But it is a sensitive issue.... And an important one-- should people expect govt to help them out with health care?
