      More Socialism Won't Resuscitate Dying Health Industry

      Libertarianz Health spokesman and Masterton GP Richard McGrath said
      today that the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists should
      cease their calls for more government interference in the health
      system.

      "For seventy-plus years, we have had state interference in the
      practice of health care," said Dr McGrath. "Where has it got us? We
      still have endless waiting lists and an overburdened, over-regulated
      workforce of demoralized health workers."

      "The public hospital system is a disgrace," he added. "Socialism has
      nearly destroyed it. How much more evidence do we need before we
      accept that socialized medicine just does not work? Not only that, but
      it is also immoral, because it is bankrolled by money that is extorted
      from the productive, and rationed out as though it was a limited
      resource."

      "Socialism is a cancer that has taken a heavy toll on the lives of New
      Zealanders," said Dr McGrath. "I applaud ASMS for pointing out how
      moribund the public health system has become. But we need to excise
      this cancer, rather than allowing it to destroy the lives of more New
      Zealanders."

      "If elected to government, the Libertarianz Party would sell off
      state-owned health infrastructure, shut down the IRD extortion racket
      and allow private healthcare to flourish. People should be encouraged
      to take charge of their own lives instead of having politicians doing
      their thinking for them."
