Today’s Special – Obamacare’s Impact On Doctors

You know what you’ve been told about Obamacare. That it will ‘bend the cost curve.’ Premiums will go down. It will not increase the national debt. In fact, it will reduce it.   You can keep your doctor. You can keep your health care plan. There won’t be longer waiting periods for treatment or rationing of health care. Health care will improve in all these areas. While at the same time over 30 million more Americans will have ‘health insurance.’ That’s right. Whether they want it or not. If not, you will pay a penalty. But now that Obamacare is in court, the ‘penalty’ is now called a tax.

What makes Obamacare even more incredible, is to believe it that it won’t have any negative effect on doctors. In fact, the prospect that there will be enough doctors in the health care industry to take care of existing patients, let alone 30 million more, is right out of the Twilight Zone. Or as then Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) said, would ‘require a suspension of disbelief.’

Isn’t it terrible that who is running the show is more important than patients getting the treatment and care they need? In this case, the ‘who’ is government. I came across a quote from Daniel Webster that pretty much sums up President Obama and his agenda for America.

“There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”

Below is a video of a Doctor in Atlanta and what burdens the government bureaucracy place on her practice. My question is, where are all the doctors for tomorrow going to come from? Why would they choose to subject themselves to such punishment when there are other industries that (so far) are not being controlled by or in the sights of Uncle Sam.  Oh no! Sights! A gun reference. Get over it.
