      New Health Minister: "Socialist Who Can Count"

      Libertarianz spokesman Richard McGrath sees little hope for those
      dependent on the state for their health care, following the
      appointment of David Cunliffe as Health Minister.

      "In his maiden speech to parliament, David Cunliffe described himself
      as a 'socialist who can count'. Can he count the number of New
      Zealanders shoved back to their GPs from public hospitals because they
      have failed to even get an appointment with a specialist? Can he count
      the number who, taxed into poverty, have died on public hospital
      surgical waiting lists?"

      "This is the man who champions the political system that consigned
      untold millions of Eastern Europeans to poverty, misery and
      environmental devastation," said Dr McGrath. "David Cunliffe believes
      politicians can - and should - control and plan the lives of New
      Zealanders. When he spoke of the 'dumb hand' of the market in that
      dripping wet, politically correct tirade, he insulted all New
      Zealanders. For what is the market but the sum total of the economic
      decisions of individual people?"

      "The Libertarianz Party believes that the less well-off should not be
      taxed at all, and that people should be left free to plan their health
      care without having to use the embarrassingly run-down public health
      system that Labour has been trying to 'fix' for the last eight years."

      "It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!"
