It is! It's wrong!

Opposition senators interjecting—

We get what you're doing. You ask incorrect questions and then I get to answer them, which is what I'm doing now.

We are the party of Medicare. We are the party that built Medicare; we are the party that will save Medicare. We are the party that will make investments in health care. We will make medicines cheaper. We will have new models of care, like urgent care centres. Are you opposed to those as well? Is the 'no-alition' opposed to those as well?

We will make it easier to bring in a workforce that we so desperately need in this country. You had failed to do that and left millions of people with visas waiting to come into the country. We're fixing the backlog to try to ensure that the people Senator Liddle raises, people living in rural and regional Australia, actually get the health care they deserve because it declined so badly under your watch! That's exactly we're doing! (Time expired)
