What ever the Government does it has to stop medical industry rorting and gouging and start to bring down the cost of medicine. As soon as people put on a white coat they think that have a license to slug hell out of their customers - knowing the Government will pay most of the cost.
Can anyone tell me why specialists are charging themselves out at between $5,000 and $10,000 a day - with most of the money coming from the Government purse?
This whole great medical debate hysteria being trumped up by the Prime Minister would evaporate if people were fitter and if the medical industry stopped gouging its customers and the taxpayer.
Rudd (and his shadow the Minister for Health) continues his romp through every hospital in the country just to get his face on the evening news. We still don't know exactly what it is he wants to take over or how it's going to improve the health of the community. How he gets his work done is beyond my comprehension.
On the track
Good Friday and the boys agreed to get out amongst it. Walked and ran in the dark.
Then went off to Tomakin for a weekend by the sea.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and don't expect a reply to the letter you sent to the Prime Minister. He's not in his office.
