Merdeka Generation: PAP cares for u, really they do

In Political governance, Public Administration on 27/03/2019 at 11:28 am

(Part of an occasional series meant to burst the blood vessels of cybernuts like pork-eating, alcohol drinking “bapak” aka “Jihadist Joe”, and tax-dodging grave-dancer “Oxygen”).

Taxi driver Lim Ee Teh, 66, usually spends between S$10 and S$20 when he visits the polyclinic for his monthly diabetes check-up.

Mr Lim, who is eligible for the newly-announced Merdeka Generation Package, learnt on Sunday (March 24) that he could soon be paying less for this visit. This was after he attended a briefing organised by the Silver Generation Office (SGO) at the ComfortDelGro’s Cabbies’ Carnival.


What’s expensive, what’s cheap in diabetes treatment

If Mr Lim is seeing the polyclinic doctor monthly, his must be terok case. As the consultation fee is $12+, he’s only paying $7 for the blood test and medicine. But the blood test is pretty expensive: $13+ each time. So the numbers don’t add up: unless he’s seeing a nurse, where the consultation fee might be lower.

My friends’ monthly medicine bill for diabetes average between $4-5, they tell me. They see the doctor once every three or four months. They pay $12+ for the consultation, and $13+ for the blood test. Assuming, they see the doctor once every three months, their monthly cost is around $12.

Seeing the doctor and blood tests are the expensive bits.

Whatever, this is what he (and me) are getting

Under the Merdeka Generation Package, which is eligible to all Singaporeans born between 1950 and 1959, beneficiaries will be entitled to Chas subsidies from November regardless of their household monthly income per person or the annual value of their homes.

Beneficiaries of the package will also receive an annual topup of S$200 into their Medisave account under the Central Provident Fund (CPF) until 2023. They will also receive an extra 25 per cent discount on their bills at polyclinics and specialist outpatient clinics, on top of prevailing subsidies.

Wow. How not to vote for the PAP? Still prefer BS from Mad Dog, Lim Tean and Meng Seng, Jihadist  Joe aka Pious Joe?

And taz not all, from NTUC Fairprice, there’s this

And for a one-year period from July onwards, customers who belong to the Merdeka Generation will enjoy a 3 per cent discount on all purchases every Wednesday.

Merdeka Generation individuals are those who were born from 1950 to 1959 and obtained citizenship in or before 1996, as well as seniors who were born in or before 1949, became citizens in or before 1996 and did not receive the Pioneer Generation Package.

Mr Ng Chee Meng, the secretary-general of NTUC, said that this was done because of feedback from workers that they needed more help to cope with the cost of living.

“So NTUC, as a social enterprise, we were trying to see how we could help in meaningful ways. Essentially, what we wanted to do was help people cope with the rising costs, in ways we could afford,” he said.

PAP is really trying hard to get 65% of the popular vote: Why PAP aiming for 65% of the popular vote.

Vote wisely. Remember that a GST rise is coming: How to ensure no GST rise.

Vote tactically (I tell how soon) because at worse PAP will still form govt:

But the cybernuts like bapak should not be raising their hopes of their hero Mad Dog forming a coalition govt of spastics. At the very least, the PAP will get only 60% of the popular vote (a 10 point fall) and retain a two-thirds majority and not win back Aljunied. No GRC will fall even to Team TCB.

Another reason why ground is not sweet for the PAP

  1. Diabetics love PAPies. And S’pore has 1 of the highest diabetic rates in the world.

    The tablets are cheap, but insulin used to be damn expensive.

    Less than 10 years ago, prefilled pen insulin jabs were considered non-standard drugs i.e. no subsidies. Even at polyclinics subsidised poor elderly patients with serious DM had to pay $100+ for a 3-mth supply.

    Now almost all insulin types are under standard drug list & heavily subsidised.

    Another big group of PAPpy fans. LOL.
