THE NewsMail website has been referenced in an online meme circulated by the office of Victorian MP Tim Watts.
The meme refers to a story published online earlier this month with the headline 'Joe Hockey denies being out of touch, cites doing laundry'.
The headline made its way on to the image released by the Member for Gellibrand's office which goes on to state: 'Still wants to charge you a tax when you're sick and need to see a doctor'.
What else is making news today:
Labor MP Tim Watts said any compromise on the GP tax would be nothing more than a cynical political fix by a desperate government.
"Nothing can fix Joe Hockey's rotten GP Tax - it should be axed today," Mr Watts said.
"People should be able to see a doctor using their Medicare card, not credit card."
A spokesman for Mr Watts' office said Labor would fight the GP tax and what they referred to as "the destruction of universal Medicare by this government".
In the story referenced in the meme, Mr Hockey was quoted as saying: "Like you, I polish my boots, I do my washing, they are the things you do as a human being, you are no different".
