Of course. CA already wants abortions to be done by physicians' assistants, nurse-practitioners, midwives, dentists, veterinarians and taxidermists.

This is progress.

Thailand has good medical care. You can get a policy for around $300 per year (2006) that covers just about everything. The b!tch is the long flight there.

I heard Howard “the Scream” Dean admit just that with my own ears. (Baltimore MD March 2011.) Obamacare will collapse the current healthcare system, resulting in single payer government run socialized medicine.

part of the porblem can be solved by a high tech medical school program. Most med schools have restricted enrollment...why? Grow the average class from 1200 to 3000 and you solve the problem of retired doctors. Make more studies online and cheaper and you have a solution to the people that don't want 300,000 debt to be a an MD.

Next make medicine effiecent - fewer tests because of fewer lawsuit and make software reduce test not add them.

I know two doctors the day after the election that quit their practices. ObamaCare forces every doctor to participate at the level of Medicare or worse.

It’ll all be blamed on the GOP somehow.

I say, Good. Dying in the gutter, whether from a brick to the head, from war in Syria, from a Muslim dirty bomb, from hyperinflation and empty stores, from the disappearance of doctors—in other words, all the things the Obama voters voted for—is the only way morons who vote for Democrats will wake up.

Actually, even that will not bring them to an understanding of what they've done. You can't fix stupid.

Basically another Social Security and Medicare style payroll deduction is considered ideal by the fascists/proto-fascists that now run this country.

The "key" to making it all work however, is having NO access to the system...

I've long said that the "key" to "saving" Social Security is raising the eligibility age to 99 years. The Social Security "system" will be "saved" - we're not talking about people, just "saving" the "system."

Uh... not to be a purveyor of doom and gloom, but considering the price-fixing, hours, and case load the government commissars will dictate to you, the “post office” may be exactly where you’ll be.

People in the Gulag used to write letters to Stalin, begging him to rescue them—convinced that he would be outraged if only he knew how badly some of his citizens were being treated.

My point is that health care rationing will necessarily result in the institutionalization of status and privilege defined by political leaders. Not unlike the royalty of Europe assigning titles to the upper crust of society. Perhaps the simplest thing is for us to acknowledge openly the concept of individual equality is now dead and move forward by having the government assign titles of rank to each citizen. The current administration might designate conservative average citizens in flyover country as “untouchable” to the applause of the media and academia.
