Greens Deputy Leader, Adam Bandt, has hit back at claims from Gina Rinehart that Australia needs a dose of Thatcherism.

“Gina Rinehart is a threat to Australian egalitarianism,” said Mr Bandt.

“Gina Rinehart is full of suggestions about how to balance the budget, but none of them involve her paying a fairer share of tax and all of them involve getting the rest of us to pay more.”

“If Gina Rinehart and Tony Abbott get their way, Australia will have a US-style health system where the quality of your healthcare depends on the size of your wallet.”

“Gina Rinehart has already warned that she wants Australia to be competitive with countries that pay their workers $2 a day.

“If Gina Rinehart thinks Australians are paid too much and have health care that’s too good, she’s welcome to leave.”
