This situation is not the result of ACA. It just isnt.
    So, because we don't have enough clinics, we need to destroy the system? What kind of logic is that?

    Not having enough clinics is one small symptom of an inefficient system.

    You would be wrong. I live near one of the highest rated hospitals in the country and they take a lot of medicare/medicaid/uninsured patients from my area. I happened to be in earshot once when a doctor was bitching someone else because a patient who had come in for a follow up left after the front desk staff had tried to get money out of them for their past due account. It basically boiled down to, "You either get them back in here today or you find a new job."

    The ones who work in top tier hospitals often make enough that they do not need to worry about it.

    LOL. No smart person would ever trust a doctor or anybody else that "don't care about money".
