Thanks to ObamaCARE aka ObamaTAX there will be a doctor shortage of 63,000 doctors by 2015 and 130,600 by 2025
You can thank Marxist Democrat, Obama, Marxist Liberal Justices and David Souter’s new found brother Chief Justice John Roberts for this one. According to CNN (hardly a right wing extremist source), thanks to ObamaTAX, there will be a shortage of doctors in this country of 63,000 in just three years. By 2025, that doctor shortage total is expected to more than double to 130,600. These of course are low ball estimates.
A physician shortage in the U.S. was expected even before the Affordable Care Act was signed into law in 2010, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. Now the group estimates that there will be a shortage of 63,000 doctors by 2015 and 130,600 by 2025.
The shortage is a result of several factors. A large number of medical professionals are reaching retirement age, as is a large group of patients: Nearly 15 million will become eligible for Medicare in the coming years, the Association of American Medical Colleges reports.
On top of that, there is a lack of residency spots available for students graduating from medical school. In 2011, more than 7,000 were left with degrees that said “M.D.” but no place to continue their education, according to the National Residency Matching Program.
