In yet another metric of decline, CA is facing a shortage of primary care doctors as MD's flee a once-lucrative and prestigious profession:
Amazingly, we seem to know why no one dreams of being a doctor any more. Obamacare and the low reimbursement rates from government medical programs that are supposed to "guarantee" health care for all.
Great. So the government promises health care for all, but then makes it so miserable on the doctors that the health care available is greatly reduced. If Republicans propose any sort of change in this perverse system, we are accused of wanting to kill Grandma. But liberals have no problem reducing payments to doctors (and congratulate one another on their green eye-shade act) which effectively leads to the same result.
We've had to spend a little too much time focusing on the Anthony Weiner scandal. While I agree that it's scandalous that one of the Democratic Party's stars was carrying on sexting relationships with young women, the real scandal is his (and every other Dems') liberalism. Health care reform is slowly destroying America's health care system, and liberals are ready to defend the destruction they have wrought. No doubt the coming doctor shortage will inspire another round of tinkering, accompanied by the usual "passionate" advocacy by the Left.
