    I know personally is something I've never seen in my lifetime. They tell me that most people just aren't getting health care so it's not a surprise to me but darned scary. We are all really going to pay for this when more and more people delay treatment for simple conditions and end up with emergencies that are both expensive and might have long lasting long term health effects whereas early treatment or intervention would have been so effective...not to mention humane. My friends across the pond express dismay at this brutality and indifference towards life in the USA. Most express disbelief at first.

      about the lack of primary care physicians.

      I know an easy way to fix that. If somebody agrees to go into primary care for at least 5 yrs, they get all their student loans paid off. All of them.

      Poof! We'd have more primary care doctors than specialists in about 2 yrs.
