Private Health Insurance

Postby pinkeye » 29 Mar 2018, 00:30

So... another fine mess we find ourselves in ...courtesy of Mr John Howard.

Remember??
That Liberal Legend?? Remember? I'm almost glad I'm so fucking poor I get a Pensioner Concession Card. You poor suckers... forced to purchase so-called health 'insurance' from his mates in the big end of town, by fucking Law.. or be penalised through higher Medicare Levy and lifetime loadings . What a fucking furphy. What a fucking scam. No wonder people are leaving private health insurance in droves. !!

Fucking joke :think :S :S

once labor has done away with the dividend tax changes, i hope they move into this area.

Remove the taxpayer funded health rebates and stop punishing people who don't use private health in the form of higher taxes. It's a scam designed to force me onto something I neither want or need.
FD.
I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.

Yup, remove the rebates, let those who want private health pay the cost of it.
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!

Removing the rebate, would have a very positive effect on the health system. It would force private hospitals to provide public health services, otherwise they would go broke. The money saved would be used for creating a better health system based on preventive medicine and we would save more money, to put to better community uses.

We will see. We've got 20 years of mainly bad policy by Libs to undo. Setting back the nation by an incalculable amount in both human and money terms...
I haven't even listened once to Question Time... not for ages. It is just disgusting.

I could paint a more graphic picture in words, but I will spare you all. :S
