The AMA has weighed in on Joe Hockey’s proposed changes Australia’s health services The Allergists voted to scratch them, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought he had a lot of nerve. The Obstetricians felt he was labouring under a misconception. Ophthalmologists considered the ideas short-sighted. Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Paediatricians said, “Oh, Grow up!” The Psychiatrists thought the ideas were madness, while the Radiologists could see right through them. The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The ENT specialists didn’t swallow it, and just wouldn’t hear of it. The Pharmacists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, “This puts a whole new face on the matter….” The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. The Anaesthetists thought the ideas were a gas, but the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no. In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the arseholes in parliament!
