Inability to cope with government financing started all the way from Ma's mayoral days when he owed the central government over 20 billion NTD and failed to satisfy the debt obligation. At the end, the court even have to seize the city real estate. This is ridiculous, were the Taiwanese voters aware of this when they voted for Ma? And now as mayor of Taipei, he is not asking the new mayor Hao to take care of it, he himself is using power as president to take care of the debt incurred back in his Taipei mayor days?? How is such behavior acceptable? The government talked about this is not just for Taipei but for all other regions in red as well, how is this relevant??
First, if the green towns all post positive balance sheet, then they basically get no reward for teir good effort, how is that fair?? Second, if the bad magistrates who got their cities in debt can be bailed out like this, then shouldnt they at least step down to take the responsibility? I dont see any government disciplinary actions at all! And finally, local governments are financed by local sales taxes nd real propety taxes, central government is financed by national income and other state owned enterprises, why do we all have to chip in for the incompetency of mayors and magistrates of other towns??
