Many people seem to have misread the poll...
It is not asking if the medicare levy that we pay on our tax should be decreased (which if it was would be quite understandable for the confusion, or increased as would make more sense.
It is asking about the REBATE, which is what you can claim back after paying for services, obviously being that if they reduce the rebate you will get less back and the Government would save money, which could theoretically be utilised to pay the national debt as this question suggests...
The question doesn't make sence
No, they shouldn't reduce the rebate. medical services aren't cheap and neither is paying the medicare levy, or private insurance and many people paying medical bills are often those who can least afford to due to whatever illness or disability they may have so people should be entitled to the maximum rebate they can. Politicians should take a pay cut to reduce the national debt, their decisions is what causes it in the first place, but they don't care because they don't live like the rest of us.
this is crazy...how can the increase to the medicare levy reduce the national debt??? Get real!!!!
The Medicare levy is already rising by 0.5%, so no, the rebate should be left alone. It only covers 85% of most services as it is. No double-dipping, thank you!
