The squandered health dollars Sussan Ley ignores

Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley offered another slick performance at her Press Club address in Canberra on Wednesday.

People like her, she has good telly presence in a way that happily contrasts with the bad cop menace of her predecessor Peter Dutton.

When she addressed the industry big wigs in the audience – the drug companies, the management consultancies, the medical groups, the private health insurers – you could see them undergo the beautific visions of those who feel goodness had returned to Narnia.
