Last Sunday, Hsu said that as a provincial councilor in the now-defunct Taiwan provincial assembly in 1982, Su had rejected a request by then-Taiwan provincial government chairman Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) to skip a question-and-answer session to see his son, who had died that day.
Su’s office, alongside a number of politicians and historians, dismissed the accusations and said what Hsu said contained factual errors.
However, Hsu yesterday reiterated the authenticity of the accusation, saying that the story had been circulating among former provincial councilors for years despite the fact that he may have stated the details incorrectly.

The DPP, typical to form, are taking the populist and absurd position that prices should be frozen, even as the the price of Taiwan's energy imports goes through the roof. They are even refusing to support the securities tax. The DPP find themselves in the position of defending the policies of the authoritarian developmental state in the face of KMT attempts at reform.

The same thing happened when last the health minister tried to bring in national health premiums under total household income, it got blocked by the KMT caucus.

Now that the KMT is back in power (and only after Ma's second erection) they are finally doing some of the very things that they blocked the DPP from doing way back then. Political dickheadedness of the highest order, but since when have we ever been able to expect any better of the KMT?
Ten years too late, and even now they're fighting among themselves to see who can keep the money train running as long as possible, bugger the future. Way to go, KMT!
