Too much government; a million too few doctors


CBS Marketwatch has published a frightening report of America’s near future. Americans will face a doctor shortage of up to a million physicians as overregulation, overinsurance and stupid government “health care” mandates and subsidies take their tolls. See here.

Government overregulation subsidizes demand without increasing supply causing prices to rise. The poor have been largely locked out of health care as Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare and other policies pile an endless burden of rules, laws and regulations upon the medical sector.

Few people facing medical school are willing to put themselves a quarter-million dollars in debt to face an uncertain future of constant badgering and endless red tape.
