Why is it that we can afford to spend more on private schools and health care but we can’t afford to even maintain our present level of spending on public schools and public health care.
I thought that the object of paying tax was to maintain a level of excellence for all of our citizens rather than to advance the difference between those that can afford to have health care and those that are struggling to survive.
The situation will be further exacerbated when we get all these 65 and 70 year olds dropping down exhausted, or worse, as they struggle to work so that they can obtain an age pension for a week or so before they die!
We must all feel grateful that we have good christian leaders in power? I’m sure that Jesus would be proud of them??
