Wow, two in one day. Here we go.
Ma’s administration has now gone to weekly price adjustments of gasoline prices using a system remarkably similar to that used by President Chen that was condemned by the KMT a year ago. This after freezing prices today when they should have gone up about NT$0.6 (or so) if they had followed the formula that they said that would be held after the May price change debacle. Now, this month, they are using government subsidies and forcing CPC Corp, Taiwan to take losses that they criticized the Chen administration for forcing on the company.
The name Taiwan Post is being changed back again to Chunghwa Post. It seems to me that the primary KMT argument against the name change originally was the cost of the change. However, it seems perfectly ok to spend money (during an economic downturn no less) to change the name to what they desire it to be.
Oh, the hypocrisy of the current administration and the Legislative Yuan becomes increasingly evident every week.
