Labor Media Release – Kevin Rudd and Nicola Roxon - 22 September 2007
“A Rudd Labor Government will retain the Medicare safety net as Australian working families have come to rely on it for help with their family budgets.
“Federal Labor will not put more pressure on family budgets by taking that assistance away.”
Labor Media Release – Nicola Roxon – 26 September 2007
“On many occasions for many months, Federal Labor has made it crystal clear that we are committed to retaining all of the existing Private health Insurance rebates, including the 30 per cent general rebate and the 35 and 40 per cent rebates for older Australians.”
“The Liberals continue to try to scare people into thinking Labor will take away the rebates. This is absolutely untrue.”
