Greens want to ban health insurance and private healthcare!

Stuff reports:

Green Party spokesman  said he would get rid of private healthcare altogether. 

“I think that distorts the health sector completely and produces a two-tier system.”

This is a remarkable statement and should ring warning bells about the ever being in Government. Hague is saying the Government should abolish private healthcare. This can only be done by legislation, and would mean:

  • Making private health insurance illegal
  • Closing down every private hospital in New Zealand
  • Nationalising every medical centre in NZ and turning GPs into DHB employees

I look forward to the Greens campaigning on this.
