Absolutely...and not necessarily a bad thing.
My Grandpa Gene was known as the community *veterinarian*; doubt that he graduated high school.
Stupid lawyers think the Progressives will protect their ability to sue/spread the wealth around.
Once it all goes to single-payer...do they really think they'll be able to sue the government?
There will be some form of government 'certification', but the mere demands created by smart doctors bailing because it really was the MONEY that insprired them to get good at what they do...will leave a big hole in the demand/services equation. The government will have to fill that hole, obviously with less qualified/intelligent individuals.
Pray for good health...especially if you are old. Which is an oxymoron.
Sidenote...went fishing with a dear friend yesterday...Progressive/Green. Has a great private health policy through a well-know environmental advocacy group. Had no clue that he is going to lose that policy to Obamacare. And that Government single-payer will have egalatarian/'social justice' criteria where we'll all take a number in line with illegals, slackers, etc.
We both agreed that there needs to be programs to address the misery of poor immigrants and slackers who are - for all practical purposes - unemployable...but I don't think that he realizes that he'll be paying a personal price in that *program*.
Live and learn.
