Petition Tag - take out
The law should simply state you can not pay cash, receive gift cards, or gift certificates, it should not say what points a person can take out and what or how much they can redeem with their point cards. It's not gambling it is for Amusement.
This Petition is made in response to the fact that Tasmanians will soon have to pay out hundreds of dollars to use an ambulance under the user-pays system which was announced as part of the state budget this year.
The bill will force the half of Tasmanians population who are not in private health to take out insurance or face a hefty bill when they call an ambulance.
Labor tried to introduce an ambulance levy in 1989 which was scrapped after public outcry. with enough public support we can stop it again.
Many students who are not financially able to pay for college are forced to take out loans. Many of these loans for college are a last resort. To avoid having a balance, most students take out loans only after financial aid has covered a mere portion of their education. Because of this, many college students fall into debt. Many will owe at least $15,000 by the time they graduate. To avoid this kind of debt, some students will drop out or avoid college altogether. This dilemma that many college students face is very disheartening.
In a country where education is prioritized, debt is not the way to keep students motivated. Subsequently, there may be less college graduates in the future.
