    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.

    I hope u factored in 2% annual depreciation into that cos the monetary value of S$54750 30yrs from now would be 60% lower than what u have now.

    pro comment! but transport related costs are usually not taken as only costs affecting the rich.
    in most countries, its part of a basket of necessities. hence might not want to implicate COE or ERP. landed property tax yes.
    luxury tax yes (we do not have that yet).

    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.

    you think p_p are stupid to do it before a election. i think it is the electorates who are suffering from short-term memory and greed.

    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).

    Ministry of Finance Goods and Services Tax FAQ Page

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

    If life which is something money could buy;
    The rich will live and the poor will die.
    In fairness that God has made it so;
    The rich and the poor together must go.
