If people would only look at the decline in health care that has happened in countries where socialized medicine occurs, they could see the looming disaster. The death rate from cancer, heart disease, diabetes etc is higher in such countries as Canada and Great Britain. The waiting time for appointments is so long that many die before they can be treated so that may not even count in the factor. Canadians who winter here in the south can't understand why we let this happen to us. They use our system whenever they can. I do believe it is more government takeover and many fine doctors will be retiring early, going into research or other fields. In my state alone, without Obamacare we were going to be short 7,000 doctors next year.
