Just add this piece of news to all the reporting the MSM didn't do in the run up to ObamaCare: Health overhaul likely to strain doctor shortage.

Of course, President Obama and the rest of the politically connected won't have a problem finding a doctor, but good luck to the rest of us.  But not to worry:

Instead of the traditional 10-minutes-with-the-doc-style office, a "medical home" would enhance access with a doctor-led team of nurses, physician assistants and disease educators working together.

In other words, you're gonna have to be in really bad shape -- or able to convince an entire stable of gate-keepers -- before you actually get access to a doctor for your medical care.

I'll take the "traditional 10-minutes-with-the-doc," please -- assuming, that is, that any of us actually gets the option.
