Doctors and nurses around the country are going ga ga as Kevin Rudd continues his inexorable march through every hospital front door in the country.
The doctors and nurses are lapping up this reform. It means more money for this bloated, inefficient and expensive industry, the industry that has overseen the worst downturn in the health of the country in its history.
The doctors and nurses are drooling in expectation of the goodies that are going to drop from the government tree into their waiting arms. They're dressed up in their Sunday best lapping up these visits with goog-goog-googley eyes.
They'll be able to work less hours for more money. There'll be more people to do the work.
Mark my words, things are going to get worse, not better. The medical industry is one patient in terminal decline. You wouldn't be on this one.
On the track
Went for a walk with the boys. I'm a bit disinterested at the moment.
I might take a week off and let my metabolic clock reset itself.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and if you're in hospital don't let Kevin Rudd sit on your bed.
