Taxes don't NEED to increase for this end - just efficiency and a reduction in the bureuacracy.

With the same taxes charged as the Australian, NZ medical is wear below quality. Better fix the health minister first before blame is to the citizen and asked them to pay more money. Nonsense!

Reasons To Agree
Like it or not our health system functions in the global market place. NZ cannot moraly or ethically continue head-hunt health professionals from third world countries. We have to train our own and pay to keep them here.

Reasons for Remain Neutral
It is not an easy decision. Yes, we need more funding for health & I would be ok with my taxes increasing. But, what guarantees are there to show the funds will be allocated to actual 'frontline' areas, as opposed to the administrative (HOD's) areas.
It does help to learn where and how the money is getting spent.. if you ever find out that is.
