What incentive does a doctor have to go through 8+ years of college/med school racking up near a million in loans, to get a job that is high stress for Medicare pricing.
The doctors I know and have talked to say they would not do it again.
Then add in the malpractice premiums and that is a double whammy. my old doctor single practice covering one nurse quarter mil a year. He figured in order to cover those costs he had to jack up his office visit price 12 bucks per visit to brak even on it. He retired early.
You liberals and your pie in the sky thoughts. It will all come back to haunt you. Just a matter of time.
So I guess doctors are starting to see how it feels to be a firefighter, police officer, or teacher in today's "no taxes and we want everything cheaper!" economy.
How's that capitalism uber alles mindset working out for you?
