News Alert: The New York Times Hits A Homerun On Health Care And Doctor Shortages

The World According to Will
The Will Anderson Show M-F 6pm-8pm on 800 and 1230AM and 106.5FM WBHP

Update: Back In Rehab I transferred back to Vanderbilt’s Stallworth Rehab Hospital yesterday afternoon, where I will be continuing my push to strengthen my upper body and regain my range of motion in my legs. Eventually, despite what some at first believed, I’ll be walking again normally.

Follow me on Facebook (keywords “the will anderson show”) for the latest updates, including pictures of me rehabbing and pictures of the car I was driving when I had the accident. And “like” the show page while you’re there!

It wasn’t exactly front page news—it’s the lead story in the Money and Policy section but nevertheless, the Times ran it. The headline is “Doctor Shortage Likely to Worsen With Health Law.”

Here’s how the story starts: “RIVERSIDE, Calif. — In the Inland Empire, an economically depressed region in Southern California, President
Obama’s health care law is expected to extend insurance coverage to more than 300,000 people by 2014. But coverage will not necessarily translate into care: Local health experts doubt there will be enough doctors to meet the area’s needs. There are not enough now.”

There you have it—yet another example of tomorrow’s news today on the show. I’ve been stressing for months that there is a CARE and health COVERAGE. As my good friend Jim pointed out a week or so ago (and he was only halfway kidding), if the nation had been fully laboring
under ObamaCare, I’d still be waiting on a doctor. But by golly, I’d be covered!

Cognitive dissonance plagues me as I urge you to read the whole New York Times story—and, for once, take it seriously.
