We already have a shortage of doctors in this country providing care. Assuming none of them did quit we would still suffer a massive shortage of health care providers once we dump another couple million people on the system. If 45% of them quit, we're seriously screwed.

I am sure that the liberals would say " With health insurance for everyone, early detection would stop most serious health problems. So we won't need more doctors".

The only reason why we still have doctors here in PGH is because of the medical school.

My GP told me that the government was already squeezing medicare reimbursements. It would not surprise me that specialists that are financially well off would either retire or cut back on their practice if NHC passes. Play golf 3 days during the week instead of 1. These dip-shits in DC are going to f. it up royally.
