Think there will be new doctors entering the field if most of the profitability is taken out of it? The pay in their field will be reduced to that of a veterinarian in no time if Obamascare continues.

Have you ever noticed how many NURSES in our hospitals got their degree from overseas?
Here in New York alone I see many who graduated from the Philippines, India, South Korea and other places. They finished their degrees in their country, worked there for a while after graduation, then took our qualifying nurse’s exams and passed. Theyw ere then allowed to come here and work ( many eventually acquiring their green cards ).
I see the same thing happening for doctors in the next 10 years.
In addition, father had access to the medicine man on the reservation, even though it was half a day's drive away. In those day, the feds basically left Native Americans alone. Modern libtards would say they "neglected" us. But I can tell you for a fact that substance abuse was very rare on father's reservation when I visited as a kid. Our people were also generally more healthy and more mobile and quite inclined to leave the reservation as father did, World War II service and the GI Bill of Rights provided him with the ticket out.
Today, the libtards would arrest the medicine man for practicing without a license and encourage the sale of drugs and fire water so they could create a substance abuse problem big enough to establish an agency there to employ more bureaucrats to take care of us.
Actually there are plenty of vets making more than many doctors. Much lower regulatory costs, quicker receipt of payments with many fewer hassles.
Well Oblather will fix that easily. Just reduce the pay of the veterinarinans--duh.
“Job Training Programs’ those spread the wealth around boondoggles for inner city neighborhoods will now be the the preferred training centers for medical assistants. Your new ‘doctor’ will be the guy who couldn't find a job because his rap sheet was too long...
The next group to be thrown under the bus will be trial lawyers. Face it, poorly trained government workers will make 'mistakes' and if you or a loved one are one of those 'mistakes' the gov. can't afford allowing YOU to sue.. So the good news is no one will have to worry about malpractice insurance...
