While the Liberals may have changed their Health Minister, they haven't changed their health policies.

Labor is giving the new Health Minister a to-do list on behalf of the millions of Australians who rejected this Liberal Government's unfair health policies.

A legacy to be proud of.

Thanks President Obama.
What a disgrace.

This is what the Liberals really think about our hardworking teachers.

Mr Laming should apologise immediately.


It’s no wonder Australians are outraged at this out-of-touch Liberal government. This conduct stinks, especially when the Liberals are gutting Medicare. But Malcolm Turnbull can’t see the problem.

"Doing nothing to develop a cost-effective national plan to reduce emissions is a recipe for high prices and insecurity."

Turnbull’s power claims are full of hot wind

In addition to cutting pensions from today, Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals are also cutting dental care for kids from low income families.

All while they're trying to give the biggest corporations a $50b tax cut with your money. It's about priorities. And they've got their priorities wrong.

Malcolm Turnbull "has embarked on the first effort of any government in our recent history to systematically reduce the living standards of many elderly Australians."

The Liberals did a deal with the Greens 18 months ago to change the pension assets test – this change will leave around 330,000 pensioners worse off from 1 January

Labor stood up for pensioners and opposed these damaging cuts.

The move to swap Tony Abbott for Malcolm Turnbull has been close to a disaster

On behalf of my family and my staff, I wish you and your loved ones a terrific holiday season and a very happy New Year. I hope you will get a chance to relax, take a break, read a book, see a movie, have a swim, watch the cricket - or whatever it is that makes you happy at this special time of year.
It was great to get to speak at such an extraordinary event with so many inspiring women.
