All Australians should be able to access healthcare when and where they need it.
That’s why Labor believes access to health care should rely on your Medicare card not your credit card.
Mr Turnbull has already cut billions from Medicare and wants to privatise the system. Privatising Medicare is the last thing Australia needs – but staggeringly it’s one of the first things Mr Turnbull wants to do.
Labor gave Australians Medicare and we will always protect it. We believe that selling off Medicare is absolutely the wrong way to go, and we will fight Mr Turnbull on this tooth and nail.
Mr Turnbull also wants to privatise the Medicare payments system, putting patient records and 1,400 jobs at risk.
Privatising Medicare will be the end of Medicare as we know it - nobody wants to head down the same path as America when it comes to our health care system.
A vote for Evan Hughes, is a vote to Save Medicare.
