"Wonders of the Human Mind. Unfathomable to the highest degree."
Does not make sense at all. The lower income need every cent to make it through every day, the gst will result in them having less to go around. The middle income and high income, what is 7 percent to them? Any increase is not felt as greatly. And as for the schemes to help the poor? My goodness there are so many citerias and conditions that so many people dont quality. Like a fund that was set up for helping the lower income, seems that the government only found 6000 families that passed their citeria and of these less than 1000 families actually were part of the scheme.
So end of the day the GST increase will hurt the lower income the most, as for the plans that PM Lee says about giving the lower income money for education.... well that is provided they can stay alive till then... and provided they have the money to support themselves when they are in school. I would say do things like increase ERP, COE, Propery Tax for land properties. This way, you are REALLY taxing the rich to help the poor and not give some lame excuse about a safety net.
Better learn how to love them. Later u kena left right centre, esp by the elite. U be glad that we are one of the lowest GST in the whole world, thats why we must catch up with them! Then first world is form. Oh dear... how wonderful.... 1 cam... hmm... Gst... gray set better...
How to give money to poor? How abt those less fortunate? hmm... Sooner, they are Poorer and we turn needy. While M.I.W. enjoy the peaceful life with earplug on, so during anytime, they cant hear anything..
Mee Siam... Mai Hum... Rem... you get money for no good reason... woo... legal bribe..
sign.so ts time for all to start saving $5 per day min when u retire 30 years later.bring your money s$54750 and start living in thailand or vietnam............a land of many >>>>>temples!!!! and peace....this money will never enough to stay in sg when retire!!!remember ,the casino is coming soon.all your saving will goes into the casino if u are a gambler!!! i'm a gambler but lucky me.no casino in sg yet.only ready in 5 years time..........so i will sure die if i remain in sg.temptation of gambling is high.so i am flying off asap if suitations allow!!!!

If it really means the poor will have a safety net then I agree with the 7% GST.
Am I the first one here to do so?
But as another member said, it is likely to hurt the poor.
The extremely rich own businesses and can pass on this GST tax to the consumer. Meaning the middle class and the poor will bear most of the brunt. When the extremely rich pay less tax, they call it tax planning.
When the poor pay less tax, maybe they call it tax evasion.
a lot of so call benefits is given to families whom had to have both parents working and the total income must be less than S$1500![this is consider low!]
provided both husband and wife must work ! both income total of not more than S$1500!
If S$1500.01 is not eligible for the benifits....what a joke
I did some researching while trying to input something useful for this thread, so this is what I found (it addresses many of the questions you guys have put forward).

I leave it up to you guys to formulate cohesive arguments against the answers to the FAQs.
