Desperate Labor and Unions Running Old Mediscare Campaign

Labor and the Unions are so desperate to run aMediscare campaign, they have been caught out trying to push on social media,their old Mediscare campaign from 2016.

This shows how dishonest Labor and the Unionswill be in trying to run a scare campaign on health, after the failure of BillShorten to explain the detail and costings of elements of his health policy.

The material was a lie in 2016. It is alie now.

The post, which was originally developed bythe Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) in 2016, claims certain medicaltests will no longer be free from 1 July.

Bill Shorten needs to condemn this behaviourand demand that the unions and his members stop this misinformation.

The Morrison Government is delivering recordinvestment in health, with Medicare bulk billing higher than under Labor at 86per cent compared to 82 per cent under Labor.

99 per cent of tests referred by a GP are bulkbilled – and so are free for patients.

Hospital funding is increasing by $31 billionwith a new agreement with the states, and we are funding $6 billion a year incancer services, along with $600m in new funding to reduce the costs of MRI’s,x-rays and scans for all patients.
