I CARE: 1 more TAX for the poor!!
Dr. Kumar gave an explanation about government’s 1 Care to a group of PSM members at the Pustaka Kiri. Though lot of read in the media about 1 Care, his explanation made more sense in the both social and economic impact on the masses especially the poor and private sector doctors as well as the ideological dimension.
In a glance I CARE looks good, take a second look and one might fear on the honesty of the assigned doctors whether his interest his to get more allocation from NHFA or the health of the patient. If we take a deeper look, then one would understand how the government plans to create monopoly – all money, about 30 million would be given away to one company or agency called NHFA – can we trust their efficiency …hmm hmmm!!!
At the end, quality of health system would be jeopardized and the masses had to pay one more tax under I CARE after GST that is sure to come if BN wins in the next election. Already the masses are suffering, why the government keep burdening them with all these taxes. If only the government is not corrupted and that don’t waste money on arm deals and other wasteful projects, they could provide free health care to the public, said Kumar.
