Phillips added, “While the UCP wants you to pull out your debit card at the emergency room, I promise you this: with an Alberta NDP government, led by Rachel Notley, the only card you will ever use to access care is your health care card.”
Neudorf responded to the accusation, saying his priorities are to keep health care public.
He explained in a news release from the UCP on May 11, “I have always been a strong supporter of public health care. I voted for a budget that added an additional $1 billion to Alberta’s public health care system and my wife is a proud registered nurse. I also supported the Public Health Guarantee and the $24 billion, 10-year health care funding agreement with the federal government. Because of these efforts, no Albertan will have to pay out-of-pocket to see a doctor or access needed health care services.”
