Really catchy title. Why not just say, "PAP avoid Means Testing Questions"? Oh yeah 140 out of 167 and its CNA.
SINGAPORE : Workers' Party Chairman Sylvia Lim has accused Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan of avoiding her questions on means-testing for C Class wards.
Ms Lim, who is WP candidate for Aljunied GRC, says he should answer them before polling day on Saturday.
However, Mr Khaw says he will be consulting Singaporeans on the issue before it is introduced in two years' time.
Speaking at a rally on Wednesday, Ms Lim says: "The Minister of Health has announced in Parliament that they intend to introduce means-testing for C Class wards in the next one to two years. In other words after this elections means-testing is going to come to us.
"The Workers' Party has asked him to clarify to Singaporeans how they're going to judge how much money we're going to pay for C Class wards because you should know this before Saturday when you cast your votes. But he has not answered this question. Instead, he says we will consult the people before we implement this.
"My question is what kind of consultation is this going to be? Is this like the consultation they had for the casino? So, the Workers' Party is repeating this question for the third time. Minister, please tell Singaporeans what criteria you're going to use for means-testing before Saturday."
Then the article mentions gomezgate. Tricked into reading an article that cannot decide whether to deal with the 'bread and butter' issues or continue to undermine the PAP in the eyes of the electorate. The CNA is so biased against the PAP. ;)
