Got Health Care? Great if you do. Not so good if you don’t. Reasonable if you have government sponsored coverage through Medicare or Medicaid. Worse if your doctor takes an early permanent vacation when Obamacare is instituted.
…the most productive and creative citizens in the United States — the innovators, risk-takers, artists, entrepreneurs, capitalists, intellectuals, industrialists — overturn the conventional concept of victimhood and go on strike, refusing any longer to be exploited by society, refusing to be demonized as too successful, too rich, too individualistic, too free.
The rumblings of doctors and patients because of government interposing itself in the doctor patient relationship by way as payor of health care services, has many doctors on the defense in the quest of safe patient care. And patients are none too happy with the idea that their best advocate will be squeezed further by draconian health care rationing. It already happens with private insurance. Once private insurance gets sufficiently squeezed out of the market and government becomes the primary payor of health care, government will be able to dictate the economics of paying for everyone’s medical needs.
That is to say, if there are any doctors who have not shrugged yet.
