Remember it is the Senate that will decide

At the risk of sounding like a broken record I write yet again that the most important truth about this Labor Government is that it is a government without the numbers to actually govern. As we ponder what will end up happening to the Australian health system we have to remember that Labor does not have the numbers in the Senate.

Neither Kevin Rudd nor all of his ministers can determine the health or any other legislative outcome. The real decision about what changes we end up with will be made in the party room of the Coalition and then, if the decision is to oppose what Labor proposes, by the Greens, Family First and anti-Pokies parties.
