But the provisions within the law are expected to increase the number of primary care doctors by perhaps 3,000 in the coming decade. Communities around the country need about 45,000.One might envision several things: 1) patients will have to wait longer to get seen; 2) doctors might not be able to provide the same kind of service as before; 3) the government will be forced to assign doctors to 'underserved' regions, perhaps as a condition of a medical school student loan (overseen by the government)--or by more draconian means. But yeah, Obamacare is just a tax.
