No Excuse

Standard

Abdulrahman al-Rashed on the Saudi budget:

Oil-producing countries have greater responsibilities, for they have no excuse when one of their citizens has no job, or when a citizen is sick but cannot get treatment, or when a citizen lacks insurance or does not feel safe in his home. It is the government’s duty to provide citizens with these services. When officials are upset at being criticized, they forget that it is their job to serve the people and the budget is how a government expresses its plans to serve the people.
