Just when you think they can’t stoop any lower, they manage to pull another flanker and amaze us all.
Not content with trying to remove medical cards from the elderly, the government are now talking about charging us for prescriptions.
Their justification for this, apart from trying to bleed us of every last red cent we have, is to try to reduce the number of prescriptions!
Is there no end to the arrogance and incompetence of that insufferable Harney? A fucking school teacher is telling us we are taking too many medications? Who the fuck does she think she is?
Maybe some doctors are a little liberal with their prescribing? I don’t know. You don’t know. The only ones who are qualified to know are doctors. If Mad Cow Harney is so concerned about it, she should tackle the doctors, not the patients.
The vast majority of people take medication not for fun, but because they need to. It is not a choice. In fact, in a lot of cases, failure to take medication can have very serious, if not fatal consequences. If a person is prescribed medication, then the doctor has done so for a very good reason. It is not up to anyone, let alone an obese health minister to intervene.
And if this charge is brought in, who is going to hit? The poorest, of course. Having been thrown out of their homes and their jobs because of the incompetence of the government, these people are now being told they are taking too much Prozac or whatever. It’s a case of ‘we have bled you dry, and now we want you to suffer, and enjoy your sleepless nights’.
Words fail me.
The sooner someone removes that Harney the better.
And I don’t care how they do it.
