Isn't Scott Gottlieb the guy who has been all over Fox News lately with the doom and gloom predictions about how bad the doctor situation is going to be or is there another Gottlieb?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Nurse practitioners, health aides, pharmacists, dietitians, psychologists and others already care for patients in numerous ways, and their roles should expand in the future. The rise of nonphysician providers will enable more team care.
Under O'care, it still might be worth it to become a nurse, aide, etc.  Not so much for physicians.

So now seeing a nurse practitioner is the same as seeing a doctor??

Isn't that somewhat akin to asking a stewardess to fly the 747 that is her workplace?

I haven't seen a physician in three years.  Nurse practitioners can even do wellness exams and are easier to get in to see.

I'd just has soon have a doc on the other end of an email.  And why can't pharmacists (who administer shots) do blood tests?

Yep............

And seeing as how a 777 can fly and land itself, pilots are really only needed to take off and when something unforeseen happens.

How about that?

I think we have found our first barefoot doctor.

It's rationing, by other means. It's like paying for concert tickets to see the Rolling Stones, but getting a decent cover band instead. They know all the chords and some of the licks, but that ain't Mick Jagger up there. Mick is getting private clinic treatment in the Azores for his chronic hip inflammation.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

What in hell are you talking about?  What do you mean "do blood tests?"  Do you mean prescribing the specific blood test, drawing the blood from the patient, or performing the actual testing on the blood sample?

Ezekiel J. Emanuel is brother to Rahm Emanuel, and the creator of a "health care" system known as "complete lives."  Under Zeke's "complete lives" paradigm, most health care resources are devoted to those who are older than 12 and younger than 59; those who are 12 or younger, or 59 and older, are intentionally deprived of health care resources and, accordingly, are intended to have increased rates of mortality and, generally speaking, less pleasant lives.  Most egregious is the intent of depriving young children of adequate health care resources; doing so will necessarily damage the lives of those kids who manage to survive past 12.  Of course, since the complete lives system requires political control of the health care system, the degree to which children are deprived of health care resources will be politically motivated.  In other words, under Zeke Emanuel's paradigm, the lives of individuals can be controlled through the simple expedient of determining - based on political considerations - whether they will receive adequate health care or not, and almost certainly, who among the children will be deprived and who will not.

It shouldn't take too much reading up on the history of the NSDAP and their public health care systems to realize that Zeke Emanuel is nothing more, and nothing less, than a fascist.  The NSDAP?  They were better known as the Nazis.
