So if I read this right, Labour wants to means test the 30% rebate on private health insurance. Singles earning the massive sum of 75k or couples with 150k would not be eligible anymore. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/politics/rudd-set-to-get-second-double-dissolution-election-trigger/story-e6frgczf-1225833871865 At the same time they want to raise the penalties for those that don’t have private health insurance, for ‘high income’ persons. So if you earn in the order of 100k a year or more, you will either have to pay a significant amount more for private health insurance, or if you don’t have private health insurance you will have to pay a significant amount more to not have it. Something seems very wrong! Rudd thinks he is Robin Hood.
