Of interest to #Ballarat people: Catherine King, the Member for Ballarat, is on the ABC's Q&A to-night

To-night's Q&A program on ABCTV includes Ballarat's Federal Member of Parliament, Catherine King who is the Shadow Minister for Health in the Labor Opposition. Ballarat is fortunate to have such a highly qualified woman to represent its interests in the Federal Parliament in Canberra.

Health services are a major part of Australian society.  We have had a universal health care system since 1975.  There have been many changes across significant portfolio areas under the first budget of the Abbott Government. The Federal Budget has not been passed in its entirety.  It has been marooned in a backwash of the government's own making.  Part of the controversial changes in the budget, is the introduction of a co-payment for visits to the doctor and other heal professionals.  This is seen as an erosion of universal health care and re-introducing inequities which Medicare had long since abolished.

So Ballarat, please consider tuning in to-night to hear what your local member of the Federal Parliament has to say.
