goodDr. sandy, UT There will never be a lack of smart, young people
wanting to become doctors. It will always be a career path for good, caring men
and women. Warnings of socialized medicine was directed against the
introduction of Medicare into the national consciousness and continues to be
ill-founded with regard to Obamacare. If anything, the Affordable
Care Act will, like Medicare, provide significant opportunities for doctors and
the medical community. Remember, it was originally a conservative idea to have
individuals take responsibility for their medical care. The opposition only
came because the Obama administration proposed that now was the time to do
something and it took the policy set forward by the Heritage Foundation.
Utah continues to be the most conservative state in the nation. Giving Mitt
Romney over 74% of the popular vote, the state is more conservative than any
state in the nation, and it looks like it will be that way for some years to
come. However, the 25% of the state electorate voting for Barack Obama
indicates that progressivism is not dead in the Beehive State. Perhaps the only area where Utah Republicans have a lock in in the state
legislature. Perhaps these conservative lawmakers can devise a way to
disenfranchise Democratic voters in the state so that in the next presidential
election, the conservative candidate will get over 90% of the votes. The reader can be sure that Republican strategists will be looking for ways to
decrease Democratic voting in the next presidential election. Voter
suppression, voter disenfranchisment, and election manipulation will be high on
the list since the number of Republican voters continues to diminish. If
Republicans cannot change and reject the crazies and extremists in the Party,
they will face more defeats in the future unless they can find a way to
circumvent the electoral process.
@worflets hope the republican party will finally get the strength to walk
away from the tea party and far right, that has abused them for 8 years now.
A battered wife will hold on to her abusive husband, and so will our country
with its president.Hurricane Obama care, and bankruptcy will soon
hit us like a storm. Obama now has more flexibility.Obama voters
will get the president they deserve.
@ goodDr.: People who complain about the ACA keep saying there aren't
going to be enough doctors.Does the ACA limit the number of people
who can become doctors?Or is the problem that people will actually
be able to go to the doctor instead of dying of curable illnesses?And if we truly have one of the "best medical systems in the world"
and "everyone has access to medical care" (even if it is through the
ER), then how is everyone having access to medical care such a strain on the
medical profession?Either there really is a problem with the US
healthcare system that the ACA only begins to address, or there should be no
problem with the number of doctors available. Which is it?
As a doctor, please prepare for too many patients and too few of us. I will
always support whomever this country elects, but do remind you that we also have
to live with the choices we have made. May the next four years be better than
the last four.
Rush and Hannity need to concede and give it a rest after four years of non stop
1005 negative attacks.
Should have gone after more of the 47% he wrote off. Republicans seriously need
to rethink the strategy.
Now, if Jim sends Mia packing,it would be a fabulous evening!!!
