Obama is Slavemaster, Doctors are Slaves

by

There is a real doctor shortage in our country.

The free market would respond by increasing the price of doctors, and thus medical care.

This would send two clear signals: One, medical care costs would increase unless medical care providers can reorganize to allow doctors to do more with less time. For instance, allowing nurses and assistants to do more of the medical care, and keeping the doctor as a manager and quality control supervisor, as well as someone who handles the cases that are rare or most important.

The other signal is that the economy needs more doctors, so if you want to make a lot of money, train to become a doctor.

Obamacare, on the other hand, responds by saying that doctors need to sacrifice their weekends. (link)

The economic effects of the above are that doctors will retire earlier and fewer people will choose to be doctors. We’re already seeing that happen today because doctors and potential doctors are not stupid. My own brother who wanted to spend the time it takes to be a doctor has decided it isn’t worth the cost to his family. Yes, he still wants to be a doctor, but no, he won’t invest his time and effort into it because the likelihood of it paying any kind of return is zero nowadays.

Folks, we are not slaves to government. Each of us operates according to our own free will. We cannot be told to do anything we don’t want to do. Government is, ultimately, powerless to change that. If government wants to try and be our slavemasters, it will soon find all the slaves are gone.

The only system that works is the free market system, where prices are set by the buyers and sellers, and where people make up their own rules as they go along.
