The lucky stroke crippled me and gave me a new life. Now I'm just unbelievably good looking and modest. Always turn a little to the left.

ABOTT-- HELPS THE WELL OFF- AHEAD OF AVERAGE AUSTRALIANS ONCE AGAIN!
First it was the Miners, then the hospital spending, school spending and the NBN and now it's subsidies for well off.
The Coalition would scrap the government's means test on the health insurance rebate ''as soon as we can''. said Abbott.
He moved quickly as the legislation, which will reap $2.4 billion over three years, was passed by the House of Representative by 71-70. Its passage in the Senate is assured.
It will mean singles on $83,000 and families above $166,000 a year begin to lose the rebate, typically worth $1000 a year to families. It cuts out altogether for singles on $129,000, and families on $258,000.
This has become his catch cry.....NO, NO, NO.
Even members of his own party believe that this is a gift to people who don't need it!
Many members of the coalition think it can't be justified and the country just can't afford it!.
