Hodgson denies the bleeding obvious

Pete Hodgson describes the Treasury reports , of hopeless productivity in our hospitals, as "arrant nonsense".

That rates up there with Cullen’s "ideological burp".

One wonders if we really need treasury when all they produce for this government are "idealogical burps" and "arrant nonsense".

So despite $4 billy more spent on Health nothing has improved.

Hodgson spins away with this statement;
[quote]New Zealand spent less than the average per capita on health, yet New Zealanders lived longer than the average.

In that sense there’s a lot to be celebrated around our health system.[/quote]

That would be the Health system that has seen sickness beneficiaries grow at a huge rate despite our celebrated health system huh?
