    Dolt.

    The doctor shortage has been around for decades. It has nothing to do with this law.
    Do you understand what the word "faces" means ????

    Even if we have the same number of doctors in five years as we do now, which is doubtful, they will be seeing 15 million more people.

    It's simple mathematics.

    Yes. But is it going to be caused by Obamacare? Or was it happening anyway?

    Who added 15 million more people able to see a doctor with little or no out-of-pocket expense ???

    I'll have to go read the article and see what it says.

    Most people will not have "free access" to medical care.

    I repeat... who added 15 million people able to see a doctor with little or no out-of-pocket expense.

    Do you actually believe giving that many people free access to doctors isn't going to overload the system ??

    From the WSJ article about doctor shortages:

    "Proponents of the new health-care law say it does attempt to address the physician shortage. The law offers sweeteners to encourage more people to enter medical professions, and a 10% Medicare pay boost for primary-care doctors. … Meanwhile, a number of new medical schools have opened around the country recently."

    Hey, it's more demand, so the free market will respond with more supply. The free market rocks!

    I'm sure you are right....

    There will be a huge demand for doctors and more will enter pre-med. The problem will be solved in 12 years.
