THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER BECAUSE THEY R0BBED MOST SUBSIDIES FROM THE POOR BY THE HELP OF BN'S GOVERNMENT. NOW THAT THEIR CRONIES ARE GETTING RICHER, THE GOVERNMENT TRY TO LIFT SUDSIDIES TO THE RAKYAT. ACTUALLY THE RAKYAT ONLY GAINED A FEW COMPARED TO THAT OF THE RICH. IF THE SUBSIDIES ARE LIFTED, THE POOR WILL SURELY GET POORER AND THE RICH WILL SURELY GET MORE RICHER. IDRIS JALAL SAID MALAYSIA WILL SOON BECOMING LIKE GREECE IF THE GOVERNMENT KEEP ON GIVING SUBSIDIES TO THE RAKYAT.....

MALAYSIA IS ACTUALLY ONE OF THE RICHEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD BUT ALL THESE WEALTH WERE STOLEN BY BN POLITICIANS AND THEIR CRONIES. THEY SPEND THE MONEY LIKE DRINKING WATER AND BEER....THEY ARE THE ONE MAKING THIS COUNTRY BANKRUPT.
