Why announce it so early?
As a responsible government:
We think and plan ahead to ensure Singaporeans needs are met.
We know healthcare and other social spending will increase with our ageing population.
Should not wait until the last minute and surprise Singaporeans. Need to inform Singaporeans ahead of time.
Better to be upfront and honest with our people now so they can prepare and make arrangements.
It is the right and proper thing to do.
