14's style is to insult you for your view and bunch of rolling heads...

Making up a lie and trying to pin it on you to then try and argue against it is a tactic that seemed to be reserved for "another poster"

this is a part of health care reform... in that because it is under the government tab perhaps nurse practitioners will take on the primary role and do it for cheaper and cut costs in the process...

and then field may change as the internal medicine/family practice (which doesnt make that much relatively for an MD) will be better off becoming specialized and will take on the referrals of more complicated cases... so MDs wont be going to med school to do essentially what a nurse practitioner can do for less money...

either that or they just wont accept obamacare cause they dont pay enough (I probably wont)...

but this is simple economics and capitalistic process of supply and demand.... obamacare will increase the demand and this be a part of changes in the medical field...  shortage might also result in the increased pay which would incentivize the medical field in general and the education associated with it...

and this is completely terrifying for certain groups of people that more americans will be educated in medicine, science, math and logic required to perform these jobs... well, had they possessed the ability  to think that far ahead

this is rational thought...

you are comparing two variable against each other and looking at the net effect...completely unheard of on threads like this...


Let me help you here...

on a threads like this, you have to think in terms of black/white, good/bad...

and the health care reform is completely bad in every possible way because of one article and that obama is behind it...

thats all you need to know and thinking with any more sophistication and reality then this in a rational manner is just completely uncalled for

You merely pretended that Republicans say ObamaCare is "socialized medicine" then pretended Republicans proposed "socialized medicine"

Other than that, not at all.

I think you should tell the people losing their jobs, losing their health insurance, and losing their incomes, all due to ObamaCare, that we are making "significant progress"

Really, that would be a fun conversation.

It is funny how these thoughts can't penetrate ObamaCare supporters.

When demand exceeds supply, doctors have a great deal of flexibility about who they see and when they see them. Not surprisingly, they tend to see those patients first who pay the highest fees. A New York Times survey of dermatologists in 2008 for example, found an extensive two-tiered system. For patients in need of services covered by Medicare, the typical wait to see a doctor was two or three weeks, and the appointments were made by answering machine.

...
In the meantime, the most vulnerable populations will have less access to care than they had before ObamaCare became law.

It makes something that was a problem an absolute catastrophe.

For example:

Across the country, fewer than half of primary care clinicians were accepting new Medicaid patients as of 2008, making it hard for the poor to find care even when they are eligible for Medicaid. The expansion of Medicaid accounts for more than one-third of the overall growth in coverage in President Obama’s health care law.

We told you so.

Oh and Medicare only pays doctors 81% of what private insurance does.

Oh and multiple surveys have confirmed more doctors are going to quit working because of ObamaCare.

How’s that for President Obama’s continued assertion that you get to keep your doctor?

If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.” - BHO June 15, 2009

According to U.S. Census Bureau, almost 50 million Americans are uninsured.  So 30 million would be significant progress in reducing the number of uninsured.



Notice that even though it is a documented fact that fewer people are going to get medical treatment, you keep bandying about the insurance card thing as if it is positive. Note that In August of 2010, The Physicians Foundation conducted a major survey of doctors and found that: 60% of these doctors said that the new law will force them to close or restrict certain categories of patients: 93% will stop seeing or restrict the number of Medicaid patients they see, and 87% will close or restrict their Medicare practice.

Why do you think you keep pretending having a government issued insurance card means you get to see a doctor?

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Once more people are insured under the Affordable Care Act that emphasizes preventative care, “the wait times that are bad now will increase tremendously,” said Howard Baron, a former president of the Clark County Medical Society in Las Vegas.

“We are trading one issue, the lack of coverage, for another,” Baron, who is a pediatric gastroenterologist, said in an interview. “Everyone should be covered, but you have to understand what the consequences of this are.”
