Instead of asking overburdened families for more money -why not do the cuts to the ABCs? Agencies, boards and commissions account for a major repeating cost to us. We don't need to be paying the exorbitant salaries in the public sector or in the health authorities and their contracted employees such as at Covenant Health. Why should we pay more and more for the elite? We don't even know how much of our public dollars go to servicing our families in the continuing care system and how much go to the upper managers, the shareholders and everyone else. Why can't we find out? I guess this information might stir up the taxpayers.
What's required is not for more dollars from us to pay for a dysfunctional health care system where the mental health system is in a deplorable state but instead to see the money trail and the deliverables. If we can't see the money trail why should we give more money for this hole in our pockets?
