Making a Bad Situation Worse: AKA Government
Yet another unintended consequence of ObamaCare:
In the Inland Empire, an economically depressed region in Southern California, President Obama’s health care law is expected to extend insurance coverage to more than 300,000 people by 2014. But coverage will not necessarily translate into care: Local health experts doubt there will be enough doctors to meet the area’s needs. There are not enough now.
You'll see this situation replicated all over the nation, as our medical corps doesn't grow fast enough to meet the needs of an aging population. Hell, the overall number of doctors might shrink in absolute terms, as our best-and-brightest seek more remunerative fields as ObamaCare squeezes doctors' paychecks.
Congratulations: You have coverage. The bad news is, you don't have care.
