Czech Finance Minister Miroslav Kalousek basically said Fuck off to the shadow Minister of Health David Rath IN THE PARLIAMENT.
The fuck-off gesture was a reaction to a very emotional speech in which Rath presented several lies and manipulation about the healthcare reform that is now in process. However, it is close to being withdrawn altogether, especially due to the fact that the opposition social democrats want CZK 30 fees cancelled. The 30-crown fee is paid by people who visit any doctor, or for every item on prescription. The purpose of the fee was to force people to stop wasting medications.
Social democrats said the fee is ruining people who already pay their health insurance premiums anyway. Nonsense. The truth is that the new system of fees was supposed to save money to health insurance companies, and the money could be used to treat people with really serious illnesses.
Rath DID deserve the bird, gotta say…
