    Mine isn't too bad, he's only $75 per visit - and I think I get about $39 of that back?? My killer was surgery, several thousand dollars... we have bumped ourselves up to top cover pretty darn quick since!! Should've seen me coming out of the anaesthetic begging them to not make me stay overnight and charge me!

    I think it's more that Gillard's is plummeting. But it all leads to the same end

    I think he will get in. Labor traditionally run bad campaigns and are not good at selling their accomplishments. I am definitely working on the assumption after September we'll go Liberal federally.

    I think for the average Joe ( ) on voting day it comes down to who they hate the least. Gillard sure is hated but Abbott isnt exactly liked OVER her...if that makes sense.

    I think if they did this it would be great too. Education needs so much money, but they keep cutting funding and not just primary and secondary, but trade schools aswell.

    I would happily pay more tax and forgo bonuses if they spent the money where it's needed like education and healthcare, increasing pay to public services, helping states with transport (better rail networks, getting congestion off our roads) Spending money on environmental issues.
    Even if they proposed giving each child who can't afford it a computer for school, or discounts on inernet so they're not getting behind on something that is no longer a luxury, but necessity. ? I would be happy with any of that.

    The way people don't look at it but should is. Gillard and Abbott are just a front runner. Your voting for a party, not the ape in the suit.

    You would think people would have learnt that after what happened to Rudd. But I don't have high hopes.
