- Yesterday was dominated by the $7 GP co-payment after the government committed to keep the policy in spite of letting it be known that it would drop the contentious budget measure yesterday.
- They have not ruled out bypassing the Senate altogether, in other words finding a back door way of doing it. This government does not seem to understand that they had no mandate for this measure and it is extremely unpopular. If it was better designed to protect the less well off it would probably have passed.
- This government can never admit they made a mistake, if they knew how to negotiate honestly then this matter would be settled.
- Liberal senator Ian Macdonald has already said he would cross the floor if it came into the senate in its original form.
