We Don't Have Enough Doctors ...

Of all the arguments "against" giving some level of basic health care to the 40-50 million Americans who don't have it, this takes the cake, but has been recently cited as if it were true: we don't have enough doctors.

As if a giant Meteor struck Nebraska and wiped out the entire Midwest, all the podiatrists in the U.S. would only do foot stuff, because fixing broken ankles is not, like, their specialty.

And all the plastic surgeons would only give you a boob job, but not stitch your daughter's arm back together.
