I'm with you brother but the news says the opposite and source is CNN propaganda against China
This op is talking about others "ignoring fact" while his country's banks collapsed one after another just recently, I guess he didnt even mentioned let alone posting anything, and guess if that happened in China, he will be on orgasm.

This is the kind of news that @beijingwalker pretends it doesnt exist.



For these people, Western media is credible only when it peddles to the Party propaganda.

They will profusely quote it when the Western media news polishes and promotes the Party by criticizing Western governments and pointing out problems.

They will run en masse as if controlled by a single source for character assassination when it raises some doubts about the Party-state machine and governance.

CNN what a propaganda against China they are doing

The narrative may be biased but it's also indeed true that China is facing challenges like tight local government finances and aging population.

400mil people will be above 60 and state pension will run dry by 2035 if nothing is done, strict Covid controls putting a strain on local finances etc; these studies are done by the Chinese themselves. At the end of the day, unpopular measures have to be taken.

But to be fair, it's not only China facing these issues. Singapore just raised the consumption tax because of projected increase in healthcare spending. France just raised the retirement age by 2 years, which sparked massive protests across the country.

1. Changing contribution ratio does not mean cutting medical benefits. In most cases it means increased medical benefits.
2. City finances has nothing to do with pensions which is under central government.
3. There were 100 protesters at most. All gone now.

no where in the world local govt is responsible for medical only state of federal govt
Public health is regional government subject in India. Municipalities run medical colleges also here.

In Indonesia, local province governments do contribute on medical, they build many hospitals and medical centers. Some of the rich provinces also have medical insurance as well. Central Government also has many hospitals and medical centers as well as nation wide health insurance.

Collaboration work. The same thing happens in education system as well

Western World standard is not universal standard.

Funny how CNN can claims reduction of medical services shows economic stress in China but what about the USA?

Any federal funded health care for the masses in America?
