Han Kuo-Yu's national policy advisory team announced the "666 childrearing subsidy". Thy plan wishes to provide government funding for all childrearing costs up to age 6. Parents can receive up to NT$60,000 of child support subsidy each year and it plans to provide free education for all children aged 3 to 4.
In order to save the low birthrate in Taiwan, all presidential candidates have put forward a plan to provide government funding for all childrearing costs up to age 6. Han Kuo-yu's national policy advisory team and his running mate, Simon Chang announced the details of this plan by criticising Tsai Ing-wen as copycat.
We say that Tsai's ability to come up with her own policy is zero but she scores 100 in the ability in copying other people's policy. Babies born after May 20th can receive NT$30,000 and $60,000 depending on if they are first-born or the second-born. We don't want to spend budgets on extending the HSR to Pingtung when no one is taking the train but the mosquitos. We are using the budget of NT$57 billion to build a train of talents.
Simon Chang said once Han is elected president, this "childrearing subsidy" would be implemented right after the inauguration on May 20th. The annual budget of NT$57 billion would be used to cultivate talents and professionals, instead of extending the HSR to Pingtung. Han's advisory team had put forward a "666 Parenting Subsidy" in which the government subsidize each household with NT$30,000 for the first-born and NT$60,000 for the second-born. There is also a monthly "child support subsidy" of NT$5,000 until the age of 6, which amounts to NT$60,000 per year. Former Minister of Education Wu Ching-chi also said to extend the national compulsory education down to the age of 5. Children ages 3 and 4 years old can be free in preschool. Also, education centers for kids under the age of 3 will be set up around Taiwan and increasing the salary of teachers in private kindergartens by NT$2,000 will be offered.
The national compulsory education is extended downward to the age of 5. It is a trend in mutual development in the world.
In related news, it was reported that a Chinese spy confessed to the Australian government that Han has received millions of donations in US dollars from government of China. Han was outrageous and said on Facebook that NCC is a DPP-affiliated agency and questioned the NCC for malfeasance in office and failure to supervise. Han has demanded the National Security Bureau to step in and investigate.
