If you think there is a doctor shortage now, just wait until the wonderful obamacare is fully underway. I personally know a number of doctors looking at relocating to other countries at this very moment. They don't want to be a part of the current socialist regime's idea of free medical care for everyone (especially illegals) and much lower fees for doctors. They are also concerned about the proposed tax changes in amerika and are looking for alternative places to practice. I hope the libs are thrilled.

Worried? They are not "worried" which is anxiety.
