  1. "Affordable, quality healthcare for all". This is such a moronic statement.

    1. Quality and cost are positively related Mr. Prime Minister, meaning higher quality=higher cost.

    2. Higher quality compared to what? Victoria? The Stadium health center?. The goal isnt very high to be honest.

    3. Affordable for all? how? we have many different classes of people. Whats affordable for me won't be affordable for someone without an income.

    In the end, this just sounds like another tax bill for the middle class.
