Coming To A Practice Near You: ‘Doctor Will See All Of You Now’ at IBD Editorials. A eye opening realization of what lies ahead in American health care, if the Democrats have their way. This is what Barack Obama promised after all. Health care for all. It’s already happening in Massachusetts.

Envision like symptomed patients being carted off to be evaluated.
