I have been a laboratory technologist for nearly 40 years. I work for a large lab that has been complying with all the changes required by Obamacare. But I have friends who have been cut to half time work for a few reasons. First, their reimbursement rate has already been drastically cut. Second, preventative medicine is also being drastically cut, no matter what Obama says. I want to puke when he talks about ‘wellness exams and preventative medicine’ because he's lying. They are already being cut and the lapdog Media keeps printing the lies as truth. My friend's lab is even turning off the lights in rooms that aren't in use all the time. Anything to save money and stay open. Obamacare doesn't care about the patients. They just want the money. Most Pathologists with whom I have worked will retire, too. I do have a question though. If doctors salaries will be cut to the bone, who will pay for their medical school expenses? Will the taxpayers pay for students to choose medical school? Because, if the doctors aren't going to make a good salary in the profession, how will they ever be able to pay back their exorbitant medical school loans?

They won’t have to pay for medical school.
The -government- will pay. The medical education will be low-cost or free.
There’s a catch, however....
The medical education will come free, but the students will be told what specialties in the medical field they will learn.
Once these new young doctors graduate from medical school, they will become employees of the feds, and told where and what kind of medicine to practice.
For life, or at least for a lengthly fixed period of time.
(Aside: how much do military officers pay for -their- educations at the military acadamies?)
