What is Troy Buswell thinking about? Has he gone mad? Cutting the hospital budgets and creating unemployment in an industry such as hospitals when we already know why we are so short of beds and nurses in all hospitals, and the idiot asks for more cuts to their budgets. The state does not need a surplus at this time, as long as it is breaking even it is very good in this financial climate. Is he wanting special kudos for having a surplus at this time when all other states are in the red, it sounds great but it is coursing great problems just to feed his ego if that is at the bottom line of this silly act. I think the Premier should rein him in and if they want more money get rid of the 1,100 cars that the government run around in but that would be too sensible I imagine as it was in the to-do box but as yet has not happened.

How is it possible for Mr. Barnett to request the public hospitals to reduce their budgets by 3%, costing 471 jobs at RPH alone, when all the hospitals are stretched to the limit? Health should get at least a 3% increase in their budgets.
