  •  Not enough doctors will take the insurance (2+ / 0-)

    According to our doctor neighbor, it's a train wreck waiting to happen - because while people may have insurance there are not enough doctors willing to take the insurance.  

    This is us governing. Live so that 100 years from now, someone may be proud of us.

    •  USA insurance is 150% the size of others (0+ / 0-)

      as a % of GDP, but they manage to have enough doctors to cover everybody, and more effectively.

    •  And "all knowing physicians" also predicted few (0+ / 0-)

      of their fellow doctors woould accept Medicare patients. Starangely lacking in the diary was a realistic explanation of how the people below 130% of poverty line get federal support for their insurance mandate. Besides, the amount of money needed to pay for care should be decreased by the parts of ACA that diminish hospital readmissions and hospital accquired infections which cause billions in excess charges and increased mortality.

      I'd tip you but they cut off my tip box. The TSA would put Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad on the no-fly list.
