Liberals have chosen to ignore the fact that one third of practicing physicians are over 55. Those close to retirement age may choose to shutter their practices rather than comply with Obamacare's costly requirements which include an EPR that will cost upwards of $20,000 to implement. A two or three man private practice with partners who are near retirement may simply choose to hang up their stethoscopes.
One must keep in mind that Obamacare was never intended to succeed. It was designed to fail from the start. Once Obamacare implodes, it will be far easier to herd people into a nationalized health care system with rationing, shortages, centralized price fixing, apathy and a steady decline in quality of care.
