The Liberals want you to pay a $7 GP tax every time you see a doctor and a $5 hike on the price of your prescriptions – despite promising no new taxes. This will hurt every Australian, but especially those on low incomes.
We believe all Australians should get the healthcare they need, not just the healthcare they can afford. We don’t want an American style healthcare system, that’s why we’ll continue to fight this in the Parliament and in the community.
But we need to show Tony Abbott that Australians stand with us and won’t let him oversee the destruction of our universal healthcare system.
And so desperate is this Government to hurt everyday Australians that they’ve already placed a message on the Medicare Hotline saying this tax will be in place from 1 July 2015. What an arrogant government that should be unnecessarily scaring Australians when it hasn’t even put this tax to the Parliament.
Labor will always stand up for universal healthcare, but today, more than ever, we need to stand together on this.
Labor will always stand up for universal healthcare, but together, our voice is even stronger.
