The next step will be to start importing doctors from third world countries as other countries with nationalized health care do to get cheap labor. Get ready for your doctor to be named Mohammed or Patel. Look at how many cases of fraud and/or illness caused by lack of proper medical procedures have been at the hands of foreign doctors and nurses. Scary stuff.
No problem: we will continue importing unqualified doctors from Third World hellholes. Going to a doctor will become more dangerous than staying home.(For older and sicker patients, this is ESPECIALLY true. Anyone who doesn’t understand that Death Panels are on the horizon is naive.) Insurance fraud will skyrocket.(Even now, foreign born doctors are disproportionately involved in such fraud.) And, oh, another thing: they will all vote Democrat.
Word of warning from experience: Look to your own health! Do not rely on the "healthcare" business (and yes, it is a business) to do anything but put you in a corral to lay insurance egg-payments for them...
the new slavery? These guys also bury their mistakes...
Don’t know where you live, but my cardiologists are named Kiran Kareti and Krishna Malineni and my endocronoligist is named is Smita Gupta. I live in Indianapolis.
And this will any different how? We already have to Patel’s in Evansville. And several Mohammed’s and Hussain’s. It’s most upsetting when a white-American-male can’t get into med school but put a foreigner in the running, they get it hands down. Not sorry that sounds like I’m racist, I’m not, just tired of the crap.
“Look at how many cases of fraud and/or illness caused by lack of proper medical procedures have been at the hands of foreign doctors and nurses.”
And look at how many people have died from the meningitis outbreak caused by drugs produced in Massachusetts.
Neglect by the Mass Pharmacy Board to investigate complaints about the lab responsible have contributed to the deaths of at least 30 people and the infection of hundreds more. The FDA knew about the sterility problems since 2002. This is foretaste of what to expect on a wide scale when more crooked profiteers protected by corrupt bureaucrats jump into the government health care game.
The “affordable healthcare” bill is a recipe for corruption. The Obama cronies are salivating at the $$ opportunities that Obamacare will unleash.
“Get ready for your doctor to be named Mohammed or Patel.”
This is happening now. I took someone to ER last year and was greeted by MDs from Cameroon, Senegal, India, and Ireland. All seemed competent and everything went well, but some of them had unpronounceable (by me) names and all had accents, so many things got repeated.
Yep. Texans might start feeling the other edge of the tort reform sword before long.
