TYLER, TX — A new report came out this week that said 83% of doctors in America have thought about leaving their profession.
The reason: Obamacare.
83% is a lot.
All my left-wing friends--- yes, I have some--- see this as a ministry. I'm kidding.
Say it was published in The Daily Caller, a conservative website. Always attacking the message.
But, the study was done by the Doctor Patient Medical Association. The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.
I mean, if I were a doctor, I would. Medicaid keeps getting stingier.
If I were sick, I would want to be treated by the best there was. Chances are they may be the most expensive.
Today's docs are afraid they will be overrun by all that will now just waltz in for healthcare.
Even if doctors do not quit their jobs over the ruling, America will face a shortage of at least 90,000 doctors by 2020. The new health care law increases demand for physicians by expanding insurance coverage. This change will exacerbate the current shortage as more Americans live past 65.
Let me asK you this.
If Obamacare is so damn good, why won't Obama and his family and congress be on the same same lousy plans we'll be on.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
