Mr Turnbull and the Coalition are considering privatising Medicare, aged care and veterans’ payments.
Medicare isn’t the Liberals’ to sell – it’s for the benefit of you, your family and for all Australians. Together we helped stop the GP Tax, and now we need to stand up again to protect our Medicare.
We’ve got a chance to do just that. A new minister has just taken the job as Minister for Human Services — Alan Tudge. As a new minister, we should let him know what Australians think about this plan from the get go.
Call Alan Tudge today: (02) 6277 4354
If that number is busy, you can also call: (03) 9887 3890
Here's some points you can raise while you're on the phone:
- Medicare isn’t the Liberals’ to sell – it’s for the benefit of you, your family and for all Australians. It should remain in public hands.
- Under privatisation, there are no guarantees as to where in the world Australian patient data will be kept. This just isn't good enough.
- This move could cost anywhere between 1400 and 4000 Australian jobs.
