So it begins. Our nation is facing a shortage of doctors because of compassionate, the right thing to ram through, Obamacare.
Experts warn there won't be enough doctors to treat the millions of people newly insured under the law. At current graduation and training rates, the nation could face a shortage of as many as 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges.
The worst shortage will be in primary care, you know in the field of common everyday medical ailments. Forced insured = too few docs = rationed care.
Brings home the reason we keep shouting: REPEAL AND REPLACE!
As if the shortage of docs isn't enough, how about this headline: Healthcare overhaul won't stop premium increases.
Here are key points from the article:
1) "...there is nothing in this bill to guarantee that it doesn't happen again."
2) "It is a very big loophole in health reform," Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said. Feinstein and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) are pushing legislation to expand federal and state authority to prevent insurance companies from boosting rates excessively."
3) "At least in the short term, regulators will be able to do little more than require insurers to publicly explain why they want to raise rates."
4) "On Capitol Hill, Feinstein said she was looking at ways to move her premium regulation bill forward, perhaps by attaching it to other legislation with bipartisan support."
Yes, that's what Americans want Diane. We want you to attach more regulation to some other bill in order to allow more government control over the colossal disaster you passed in the first place. Really got your finger on the pulse of the people, eh?
Hey Diane, have you seen this: Three weeks after Congress passed its new national health care plan, support of repeal of the measure has risen four points to 58%. American Citizenry to Dismissive Politician Translation: WE HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN, NOR WILL WE.
Say it with me, mah peeps: REPEAL and REPLACE!
And don't let anyone tell you any differently.
