    So you are blaming a shortage of primary care physicians in this area on the Affordable Care Act?

    LOL! Nice try, but what's happening is people who showed up with no insurance at the ER now have insurance. This means the hospitals can recoup serving them from their own insurance policies instead of the hospitals having to gouge the insured to pay for the non-insured, which is how things were. As more get insurance, less people with insurance will get gouged to cover those without.

    D'oh.
