Re: Oz, and health care
You just know things suck when you do have private health insurance, and just to get some stitches for a cut foot you know to say 'NO' to the 'do you have health insurance' question because if you say YES, you will be out of pocket.
Just another one of those things Howard has had in his sights. Along with IR reforms (read as destroying the unions and 100 years of hard-fought workers rights) and anti-terror legislation (read as destroying 100 years of hard-fought civil liberties on the mere threat of terrorism).
I tell you, life under the current Liberal government just gets worse and worse. At least I feel good in that I did not vote for him...
