A conversation with PM Lee

"What the government does is not intended to penalise those who are not married but to actually help those who are married"

shouldn't it be a needs based approach just like our healthcare system?

I like the suggestion from the lady about taxpayer can choose which area we want our tax to spend on and being provided a report from the ministry how are the money spent. But MP seem find this way is not workable.

Some ministries will end up with little. Maybe allow the flexibility to say 5 or 10 percent of the tax paid

One guy commented that Singaporeans do not have a common goal to work towards unlike our earlier generation, that's why we do not have that sense of belonging .
Thought that was a good point.

Yes it was a good point. The upcoming national conversation is to help set a unifying vision. Like corporates, it is not a easy task setting a vision which most people will buy into unless it is in crisis mode.
