An apocalyptic view of our future:
The forecast shortage of doctors has become a real problem. It started in 2014 when the ACA cut $716 billion from Medicare to accommodate 30 million newly ‘insured’ people through an expansion of Medicaid. More important, the predicted shortage of 42,000 primary-care physicians and that of specialists (such as heart surgeons) was vastly underestimated. It didn’t take into account the ACA’s effect on doctors retiring early, refusing new patients or going into concierge medicine. These estimates also ignored the millions of immigrants who would be seeking a physician after having been granted legal status.
Jon, you know I love you man, but you’ve GOT to take a chill pill. Yes, we’ve been lied to by Congress and THE BIG BOSS himself. But this is nothing new, and you can’t really impact their decisions or behavior with your rants on ObamaCare, Immigration, Global Warming (aka “Climate Change”), the state of Education in the United States, or our national debt.
May I recommend that you take advice from the Canine Community?
Rubio said he agreed with Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador who last week said House Republican leadership would be “crazy” to negotiate with Obama if the president makes the same “good faith effort” on an immigration bill that he did on fiscal negotiations and that Obama is “trying to destroy” the Republican Party.
