Reasons To Disagree

Thats right, once again penalise all the people that pay for the FREE healthcare in the first place and give FREE health care to those who don't pay anything at all towards it. Dream on

If the system allowed people to fully choose the service they wished for, then market forces are not unreasonable, assuming insurance copes, and all can afford it. In a system such as ours where choice is controlled it is unreasonable to use a 'market force' argument.

No Way. Imagine selling butter based on income. Stupid idea. Let doctors charge what they like - health is not healthcare!

NO! Equal conditions for all! And what the h+++ do you mean by "the Doctors fees are "market forces" tested".

This question makes no sense but what it is trying to get at is evil.

Reasons for Remain Neutral

I don't like means testing. It skews the result - for example, self-employed people can elect not to take drawings from a business to bring themselves under the salary limit, when in reality someone who is employed (and cannot do so, and is paying more tax) cannot do so. Targeting also stigmatises.

I don't like the way doctors put on a $10 penalty when you can't pay on the day, it is in effect a POVERTY TAX and punshies those who cannot pay on the day for having no money - health is for the rich now
