Budget debate over, now for the voters’ verdict?

Dear Mr Mah,

I refer to the 11 Mar 2011 Straits Times report – Budget debate over, now for the voters’ verdict?.

You said this government is unlike most governments that focus on the short term. But what is the outcome of any such difference? Double digit housing price inflation for three of the last four years. HDB resale price rising by more than $150,000 on average over the last four years. That is the difference. It is a difference in the portrayal of truth to the public. That despite double digit housing price inflation for several years, despite housing price having shot up by many times the ‘generous’ subsidy of $40,000, this government continues to insist that housing is affordable.

The reason why we can overcome so many challenges along the way is because we have an entire nation’s resources to squander and thank goodness we have a nation of hardworking people. Even if there are agencies which have passed with flying colours, yours is not one of them. You have failed miserably and your report card is a lousy F9.

Flying or crashing colours will not be revealed in the next election. What will most likely be revealed, time and again, is the blind faith of many people for the PAP.
