HEALTH CARE


There is an increase in patients, but the number of doctors 'in the pipeline' in medical school will not be enough. This will be heavily evident in urban areas, and most likely a very unpopular and burdensome effect. These people are, as far as I can tell, also not assumed to add any costs to the system at all. This is highly unlikely, and it is most likely that 32 million new patients will only serve to drain additional resources. Solution is necessary.


Medicaid expansion depends on state sharing of the cost. Even with new federal money, budget-crunched states will not come through with their part. Also, the list of treatments and care covered by Medicaid will shrink. - CA

The cash crunch is caused by the cost of profit driven phony wars leading to the economic coma caused by elite morons collapsing and offshoring the economy because the pricks can never get enough.
