Tying in with my post from yesterday

Where I talk about how ARNPs get stiffed just as bad as the doctors do with Medicare.  Now add this to it - Doctors going Galt.

Last month, a urologist in Florida told patients that he’d prefer ObamaCare supporters go elsewhere for treatment.  Today, a dermatologist in Arizona warns that he’ll be elsewhere if ObamaCare comes fully into law.  Joseph Scherzer says the penalties for dealing with Medicare patients, along with more top-down government control of health care, will drive him to close his doors:

Most medical clinics do business with Medicare because they have to, not because they want to.  Only under Obamacare, it'll shut them down because doctors won't be able to recoup their losses by charging their patients with private insurance, simply because after a few years under Obamacare those patients will no longer exist.

Under Obamacare, you'll have your FREE medical coverage, but you won't be able to find a doctor who will cover you.  Which is pretty much just the same as not having your FREE medical coverage.  Welcome to the brave new world!  Have you bought your book on herbal remedies yet?  You're going to need it.
