Doctors and Nurse Practitioners Go to War in Five States

    If there is a way to foul things up, the Democrats in control in California will find a way to do so. All those living in Democrat controlled states and cities should know that they are damned to suffer the same fate as Detroit, and should drop everything and leave immediately.

    I agree with Yglesias “…actually no evidence that the quality of care delivered by nurse practitioners is systematically worse than that delivered by doctors, and nurse practitioners can do it at a lower cost. …”
    I have had both doctors and my current nurse practitioner make mistakes that have seriously damaged my health.
    What upsets me is that all I have is that nurse practitioner for the past 2+ years.
    Before Medicare put me on their “do NOTHING” list, I did have a few doctors who at least did a few blood tests so that I could manage my own health care, but they dropped Medicare patients.

    This sounds like a bargain that nobody could pass up. Watch for the U.S. Congress to implement coverage for members of congress, their families, and congressional staffers that heavily utilizes nurse practitioners instead of physicians. Can Donald Trump, Oprah, and Warren Buffet or for that matter her majesty Queen Elizabeth II be expected to resist such a sensible and effective approach to health care delivery? Look for everyone to jump on this bandwagon. Physician, heal thyself, nobody else needs your services.
