Victorians have sent a resounding message to Tony Abbott – dump your deceitful and destructive GP Tax.
Tony Abbott lied about his health plans before the federal election, and now, when given a chance to cast a vote on the GP Tax, voters have soundly rejected it.
Amid reports today of bitter divisions within his Cabinet, Tony Abbott still seems determined to go ahead with the tax, despite it being soundly rejected by voters and health experts.
After last week’s chaos where the Government committed to the tax, abandoned it, then recommitted to it all within 24 hours, the Victorian election result sends an unambiguous message to the Abbott Government.
The GP Tax is a bad for health, bad for the Budget and a disaster for the Abbott Government.
Instead of using it as a cheap Budget trick to prop up Australia’s worst ever health minister, it’s time Tony Abbott listened to what the experts, Labor and now the Victorian electorate have told him, and dump the GP Tax for good.
