Dr. Keith Kantor and Mike Bastinelli of Fox News Radio discussed how Obamacare will place more burden on the healthcare system and lower the quality of care. Dr. Kantor explained that Obamacare was designed to give guidance, mandates and penalties to the insurance industry to try to make the system more fair, not to fix the broken healthcare system. He stated that a major problem with the plan is that the way it was designed, it took $716 billion out of Medicare from fees that were supposed to go to hospitals and doctors. Surveys show that because of this, 1/3 of doctors and hospitals will stop taking Medicare by 2014. The result will be placing an extra burden on the 2/3 of those doctors and hospitals that are left to handle these people. This will decrease the quality of care by making lines longer, waiting time in office longer, wait time to get an appointment longer, and the amount of actual time spent with the doctor shorter.
