So I thought I'd post it here instead:

So apparently the Liberal Party are setting their sights onto Medicare, considering things like not covering GP visits (those pesky little things that filter out the serious stuff from the less serious stuff and keeps the ERs and hospitals relatively clear of small cases). As a woman with a disability who NEEDS her doctor's visits and could not afford to go should Medicare stop covering them, I offer a hearty THANKS to anyone that voted for the fucking Liberals. I am now looking down the barrel of some serious fucking hardship. I need to see a doctor monthly at least to a) monitor my chronic pain condition (endometriosis which sometimes needs surgery), b) monitor my medications that go along with that condition and c) deal with all the little extras that come along with having a major pain condition (IBS, urinary tract problems, migraines, etc). I am so angry and so mad about this, I barely have the words. I don't know how anyone with a clear conscience can vote for the Liberals. It's basically saying you care more about money than people's lives. I know *so* many people that are going to suffer for this, that are already suffering under the current system, and it's only going to get worse. And the government is blithely wandering Australia down the shitty road the US has been on for the past fifteen years. News flash: IT'S NOT A ROAD YOU WANT TO BE ON.
