Imposing GST akin to killing the golden goose
COMMENT The proposed goods and services tax (GST) will tax those who can’t afford to be taxed, i.e. 60 percent of Malaysians who are eligible for Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M). These are the people who will soon be taxed by the regressive tax, together with the rest of us who live and stay in this country.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
