The trend that had begun of doctors’ not accepting new patients who were on government programs has greatly escalated. Any private business owner quickly learns you cannot provide a service that costs more than you ultimately receive for the service. The concept of deficit financing has become so common in government; many people believe it works in private situations as well.
A story with wide ranging implications is once again being ignored by the mainstream press. A Marxist/Progressive candidate running for a state legislature has called for a law that requires all doctors practicing medicine in the state be forced to accept patients on Medicaid and Medicare. The fact this will force the doctor to close their business was not even mentioned. The fact this will greatly reduce the number of doctors practicing in the state was never mentioned.
Based on past history, more and more Marxist/Progressives will start to advocate for this same type of law on a national basis. The results will be the same; fewer and fewer doctors with a growing population. This is unimportant to the Marxist/Progressive. Remember, Obamacare was never about health insurance or health care, it was always about putting 20% of the American economy under the total control of the government.
