"This Government has never promised the moon, the stars or the galaxy. We have never painted a pretty picture based on wishful thinking. As a responsible Government, we continue to speak the truth even though it may be unpleasant. We have never misled to the rakyat with tall tales. On the other hand, we have always offered solutions and provided good leadership to every problem faced by the rakyat.": Najib Razak
They call it an election budget. Can't blame them for labelling it so, because it is the last one before the next general election.
Be that as it may...it is whatever you want to call it..
Najib's critics, adversaries, enemies and what have you can try all they want to trash and thrash the Budget 2013...well...they can try.. but I talked to so many people...including those non-lovers of the BN and they say that Najib's really nailed it...
Yeah..it's got something for everyone. Okay, almost everyone...
Come on -- from the pre-schooler to the retireee/senior citizen.
Maybe the PM left out the mega/super-rich. Hurray..
But really, who's left out? Who has been excluded? And if you've been left out, you will suffer?
And for me -- as a mother, as a working woman and as, well, a woman -- it's got so much for me. tax relief, and for the kids and then for my kids' present and future and ...free mammogram.. Yippee..
Of course, of course....they'll try to tear it down to pieces. Good luck.

P.S: I'll not stop wishing for a good health plan for the rakyat...
