Has anyone thought about how overwhelmed the health care system would be if everyone had coverage? Millions of people who do not seek care for many things will be lined up to receive services. Now I am not saying people should not be insured because they will overwhelm the system, but I am saying it would cause great problems in the health care delivery system as we know it. Add to this decreased reimbursement to providers and you will soon see a major shortage of healthcare providers because who wants to spend the time it takes to become a nurse, physician, medical technologist, radiology tech….for less money than they are making now and with an increased work load?
Think there are waiting list in other countries with nationalized healthcare, wait till you see it here. The other countries have had decades to deal with it. We would be starting from scratch.
