    This government doesn't care about public health - it is all about dollars and cents.

    And anyone who believes there is a budget emergency is just like anti vaxxers and climate deniers - "some guy on tv or the internet said it - so it must be true", "meanwhile I'll disregard absolutely anything that the experts say on the subject because I have already made up my mind and I only seek "evidence" or view points that back up my preconceived ideas - I'm not interested in the actual truth".

    So according to the guest on lateline (who I presume to be from the commission of audit) the average of 11 visits to a gp that Australian's make each year it a terrible burden. Way to encourage public health - don't go to the dr, you are not worth it.

    I don't object to there being a reasonable budget for maintenance of The Lodge but $4.45m??
    (In the interest of brevity I've only pasted the first part of the article.)

    Lodge renovation hidden from the public as cost blows out to $4.45m



    Staff in Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s office have blocked the release of information on the year-long restoration of The Lodge, fearing "negative comments" about the $4.45 million project.

    As contractors continue major works at the prime minister's official residence in Deakin, internal documents show bureaucrats were instructed to give purposefully vague responses to requests for information from The Canberra Times.
    Released under Freedom of Information rules, a series of emails show officials in the Finance Department were told not to provide any explanation or identify Mr Abbott's office or the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet as being responsible for the decision.
    One senior bureaucrat said Mr Abbott’s staff could be concerned about privacy or a poor reaction to the information being made public.
    ''Just say the visit has not been approved and you are unaware of the reasons,'' the Finance Department official instructed a colleague via email in March.
    ''Don’t identify PM&C or the PMO as the decision makers, just leave it vague.''
    Works to repair the slate roof, remove asbestos and replace electrical wiring and climate systems began in September.
