    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.

    lets 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.
