First off, most of the problems would be solved if the 15-20 million illegal aliens were kicked out of our country.

Second, you can blame politicians who are owned by the AMA for lack of doctors & nurses in this country. When was the last time a medical school or nursing school opened in this country?

My 2 cents; take 70% of the law schools in the country and convert the resources over to medical schools.

The new magic health scam of Obama, Pelosi and Reid that will add at least 31 million illegal immigrants and their families and will pay for young students that refuse to buy low cost $200/month insurance will scare the doctors away.
The Obama healthcare is intended for the young and healthy that do not need to see doctor between 18 and 30 years old but it will leave the sick, disable and elderly with nurses instead of doctors that will not be there.
Yes, there will be plenty of fat liberal lawyers Ambulance Chaser that will live on millions of dollars for blaming the collapsing system for the negligence of the semi educated doctors that will replace the true doctors that escaped the lawyers frivolous and fake law suits.
Have you seen a real doctor recently? They are all gone because the liberal lawyers ruins the medical profession with their invented lawyers’ medicine that bring them millions of dollars for nothing in court.
The Obama health scare will cause the death of millions of sick and elderly that will be waiting months and more months for the Obama semi-professional doctors from all over the world but Obama cannot care less about America because he is the leader of the socialistic-Islamic world.

looks like dems are going to go immediately for Obama's signature - the margins for GOP are too slim for voters to be convinced

Enforce and fund the current immigration laws,
arrest and deport them all,
jail time for all employers,
and just for fun,
one million land mines on the border!

Fix the Federal law that says WE must give illegal alien border jumpers free medical care, while Americans go without.

If we Stop the infux of doctors who went to medical school in China, Iran or India or other third world nation, American Doctors might get thier life style back.

These FMG Doctors are starving the American Doctors. They pay "peanuts" in their so called mother land and come steal bread from American Doctors.

When these FMG come to America, they are thankless, rude and so unappreciative to American Ways of life.

Do we need them?

In the Department Of Veterans Affairs Medical system there are a lot of foreign Residents and interns learning to practice the Art of Medicine.

Several years ago one of my none English speaking VA doctors made up a concoction for me. The pharmacist could read what the foreign doctor had written so he had the resident go down to the pharmacy and fill the prescription himself. When I ran out of the medicine and I returned to the VA for a refill. I was told that they were unable to fill the prescription because no one could read it. The prescription was written in an obscure Pakistani dialect that no one could read.

I got so frustrated trying to talk to the VA Doctors that several times I simply got up and walked out of the room. I mean what sense is there in having medical providers who DO NOT speak English.

Supply of doctors and nurses following the laws of supply and demand with controlled supply affecting health care quality and costs.

It's called maximizing profits. Most practices always want a full schedule. That's why they charge you cancellation fees. The average US medical practice is more worried about productivity and not patient care. In order to meet their desired financial goals they must so many patients per hour per day etc.
