Participants at Boao Forum will be treated equally, Siew says (Taiwan News)

A couple of weeks ago the legislature passed amendments proposed by KMT legislators Yang Chiung-ying (楊瓊瓔), Chu Fong-chi (朱鳳芝) and Ting Shou-chung (丁守中) that doubled the benefits given to traditionally pro-KMT village and borough chiefs nationwide, all at the taxpayers’ expense.

And then there are the proposed amendments to the Statute Governing Reconstruction of Old Military Dependents’ Villages (國軍老舊眷村改建條例) that will benefit the families of KMT military veterans to the tune of around NT$1.32 trillion (US$40.6 billion) if (or should one say when) it passes.

Is this the kind of government for “all the people” that those who voted for Ma expected?
Note: I don't think the borough chief bribe bill's been passed yet. It just got out of the procedural committee or something
