[quote=“ac_dropout”]I believe the 5000 USD fine to the MOE will be ample enough to pay for the changes the KMT implemented.
The KMT is very frugal in terms of using money.
Unlike the DPP who are not very well trained in being fiscal conservatives. Just look at their parades and go-no-where initiatives.
Compared to the effort to change a name of landmark and custom signs. A couple of street signs are quite cost effective. Not to mention gives the impression that the KMT is not a push over party anymore. This political move will pay in dividends.[/quote]
Let me see if I understand you point here…
MOE uses budget (tax payers money) to implement name change.
Mayor office, issues fine to MOE
MOE must then reallocate budget to pay fine
Mayor office, uses fine money to cover own name change costs.
So the net result is that the Mayor office redistribute budget funds from MOE to Mayor office by means of a fine during a time when the KMT have frozen the budget of the Government.
So does this imply that the KMT are creating fines to manage the keep liquid the budgets of pan-blue departments while the budgets are frozen by the pan blues in the govenment?
So does this mean that the pan-blues are focusing on what they can do for themselves, rather that what the budgets can do for the people?
In another post you mentioned that the KMT is the “only party on Taiwan in tune with the needs of the people.”
As you said,
What dividends do you mean? What dividends will the voters be getting from the KMT initiative?
