If help is targeted based on need, why are millionaire ministers getting subsidies and pensions?

At a time when poverty is actually rising and spreading as the income gap and cost of living increases mean that more Singaporeans suffer unnecessarily and unjustly each year because as a nation we have more than sufficiently resources to help those really in need. We need a govt that is honest and sincere in distributing help not one that hides behind euphemisms and rules. What we have today is a govt that will debate endlessly over whether $1 per day increase for Public Assistance is too much but wants to compensate its ministers and top civil servants millions a year and handout 8-12 month bonuses to people who are suppose to serve the public. This is a govt that has lost is bearings...it has lost is values, its conscience and its sense of reality....and we better put all these back in govt and we have to be serious about it before its too late.
