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!"
