By BBN Staff: The People’s United Party (PUP) issued a statement calling out the government for punishing Belizeans.
The PUP says that the government informing of the major budget cuts to the National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme means that those who are a part of NHI would have to pay full cost for those services.
“This government obviously has no concept of the hardships being faced by ‘normal’ Belizeans or, they couldn’t care less. The cuts announced so far have all targeted Belizeans who can least afford it – cuts in the health sector, cuts in the public service, cuts in the education sector and now the announcement of cuts to NHI,” the PUP said.
The PUP reminded of the contract entered by the National Forensic Science Service Department to rent a building owned, at least in part, by the Prime Minister of Belize.
The PUP says that this is in addition to luxury vehicles costing hundreds of thousands of dollars purchased for UDP Ministers in the past weeks as well as a decision to rent, for ten years, a building owned by a UDP Senator and crony.
The party believes that privileged UDP’s continue to prosper, while basic services to normal Belizeans are being impacted.
“The People’s United Party calls on the Government to revisit the decision to cut budgets for the National Health Insurance scheme. At a time when Belizeans have lost their jobs and livelihoods, they cannot now lose access to health services as a result of the skewed priorities and negligence of this government,” the PUP urged.
