It’s clear that you’re as angry as I am about Medicare privatisation — over 1500 of you made calls to the new minister in just 24 hours.
I asked you to help and you delivered.
That’s roughly 62 calls an hour to incoming minister Alan Tudge, all saying that Australians don’t want Medicare privatised.
Together we spoke up and said that we don’t want our universal health care payments system run by a private multinational corporation with no guarantees that our data would be kept onshore.
It’s an absolutely amazing effort, Neville. You took a stand for our Medicare and I want to say thank you.
I know that this minister will be in no doubt about our willingness to defend our universal health care system — and that really is thanks to you.
This fight isn’t over yet, but this week, you’ve helped us take a strong stand.
Thanks again for your support,
Senator Doug Cameron
Shadow Minister for Human Services
