Facebook Medicare Advert

I’m a bit perplexed—why does the government need to waste money advertising a service everyone knows about and which is freely available to all Australians, whether or not you want it?

Am I missing the point, or is this just a total waste of my money?

It’s less logical than the NBN ads they keep running in front of all the movies I’ve seen recently—advertising a government monopoly… seems logical right? Should be illegal.
