What?

Doctor shortages under socialized medicine?

They told us that wouldn’t happen.

But this wasn’t going to happen. Just like insurance rates wouldn’t go up and... lie after lie after lie after lie.

My hubby's physician and my personal physician as well have each decided to retire due to OBamacare mandates. Now, in a few more months, we each will be searching for a new doctor.

All part of President Cloward-Piven's plan to overwhelm the system and replace it with a totalitarian Marxist Utopia.

After a few tens of millions of bible-clinging gun-clutchers get dead, of course.

When all of your health care is “free”, why limit your doctor visits? Got a cold? Go to the doctor! Got a headache? To the doctor! Baby has diaper rash? Run to the doctor!

Went to my doc last week and had to wait an hour after filling out paperwork. Dr. told me that the Fed’s are already requiring him to spend 30 hours a week on extra paperwork and Obamacare hasn’t kicked in yet. He says it will soon become outrageous and will become impossible to get basic treatment. He said he doesn’t know hoe long he will continue to practice.

I personally know 5 PCPs, neurosurgeons and cardiologists who’ve already sold their practice and gone into university teaching. Several more are planning to sell and go to the high-end islands to open very upscale full-service clinics & medical facilities to the 1-2%-ers, to avoid 0bummerCareCrap. Their “replacements” barely speak English. This isn’t going well.

Don’t worry, Obama and his socialist followers will solve this problem by paying inner city kids to go to college (where they won’t be allowed to fail) and then to medical school (where they won’t be allowed to fail).

Then you will be assigned to one of them. In the Soviet block, people learned to practice medicine at home and avoid the doctors.

Turns out that the socialists were right. You can provide free 19th century standard medical care for for just a little more than double what it is costing you now.

How to know the five critical stages of illness from being bamboozled.

1) Nausea when you see they're not cutting taxes but raising taxes.

2) More nausea when you realize they re-hired the guy who created this fiscal mess without explanation or remedy.

3) Really sick while you watch concerted efforts to abandon the U.S. Constitution, the ONLY legal bulwark in America of the rule of law for individual freedom against the rule of man and the tyranny of government.

4) Passing out when you realize that Obamacare will create LONG waiting lines for lousy, expensive medical care.

5) NDE (Near Death Experience) when you find you're on the Obamacare list for withdrawal of patient care - ObamaNoCare Death Panels like they have in England.

I think we’re around stage 4...

My first thought 3 plus years ago, when I learned the primary
outlines of Obamacare, were there would OBVIOUSLY be a doctor shortage, since most of the Doctors I already know, were ALREADY complaining about how much of their time was taken up with fulfilling the overwhelming paperwork,etc. of the existing system, and that it just wasn’t any “fun” anymore to practice medicine.
It will be ever so much worse under Obamacare. What I saw on the horizon even three years ago has already been a trend in the last 10-20 years: more and more doctors will be recruited from 3rd world or underdeveloped countries to “serve” what’s left of the American people. Nurses have been coming from the Philllipines for many years, now more and more Doctors....and from every other place you can think of.
It is a certainty.

I’m trying to get a doctors for my wife who just got Medicare and I’m surprised that many of the doctors are older than she is. This can’t bode well for the future

What could be done to increase the number of medical slots and internships? We need more doctors, and the AMA has kept that number flat for years.

"Complaint?"
"Yes, please help me. I'm having chest pains, and..."
