Can Uncle Sam Manage Health Care?
My oldest son is an MD at Yale, a surgery resident and a product of the government controlled system which for almost 20 years has rationed the money needed to train new Doctors. Medicare pays 70% of the cost of this training at the the teaching hospitals (10% of the total hospitals).
Obama has cut that funding more, about $50 billion over the next ten years.
Government management of health care does not work and in this case will produce a huge MD shortage as 30% of MD’s are going to be age 65 by 2020.
