Conservative think tank organization, The Heritage, was quoted in the blog, The Foundry, saying that Obamacare will have an enormous impact on the way physicians practice medicine.
The think tank states that Obamacare is on track to cause a major doctor shortage, because of the increased bureacractic intervention between doctors and patients.
They also believe that increasing the fines for non-compliance with government Medicare treatment guidelines could discourage doctors to the point that they will quit practicing medicine. This, they continue, will ultimately trigger an even greater doctor shortage than already exists in the USA.
