Get Ready for Health Care Rationing!

Health care rationing is on its way.  Many of us predicted that it would come to pass as a result of ObamaCare, and it has been exhibited fully in ObamaCare lite, the socialized health care plan in my home state of Massachusetts.  Now, a new report shows that with the increase of people on health insurance that is coming with ObamaCare, the nation is going to be short about 150,000 doctors within the next fifteen years.  Hopey-change!

Already happening.

My mom in California was referred to a neurologist last month. So far she can’t find one who will take a new Medicare patient. Her internist is livid that she has been refused, but what can he do? Meantime she is suffering.

And what is she supposed to do? (Purely rhetorical…I know she is supposed to just roll over and die)

It’s so important that the law of unexpected consequences is exposed in all of the fine-print no one bothered to think through in ramming through Obama Care last month.

However, this is an obvious one that Dick Morris (and many many others) said would happen. It takes ten years or so to train a doctor and about three years to train an apt nurse. How do you cover 30, 40, 45 million (whatever the new number happens to be today) new people without adding new doctors? Either you simply can’t and shape the system to accommodate that grim fact or the government allows unqualified foreign doctors to come in and pick up the slack. Either way, we should repeal this law.

Sal, it’s no wonder the public is skeptical of the health care law despite President Obama continuing to sell it:
