obamacare here to stay so now Congress has to fix the problem. Obama needs to put forth something, or some lawmaker does, to entice medical students to want to be family doctors. I doubt that many go to school that we couldn't figure out a way to make the loan so much better, cheaper, that some that were on the fence choose family practice.
It seems like the logical way to approach it. But it may not be enough. The pay difference is pretty severe. We also have to help them make money by not having to get lowballed by medicare with too many patients. Maybe not only cheaper loans but some sort of extra tax write-off first 3 yrs of your practice?
it is a problem, but it was even before Obamacare. Obamacare just means even more people will need a doctor. So its being burnt from both ends.
