Legislature won’t face inconvenient truths about healthcare

Amazing insight into what will happen once single-payer comes. More users will lead to more demand, which will lead to more cost, which will lead to lower imbursement rates, which will lead to doctors leaving and hospitals closing–or curtaling their services. The only challenge is to now get the Vermont Legislature to pay attention to those who have actual knowledge and insight into the unintended consequences of going down this path. With that being said, don’t expect the Legislature to pay attention to guys like Dr. Minsinger–because his conclusions would be too inconvenient.
