Obamacare proposes to increase health care, but it does not increase any doctors or nurses that are already in short supply. However, it increases thousands of IRS agents to enforce it. Even though I oppose increasing government, I would support subsidizing the training of doctors and nurses. An increase in doctors and nurses would create competition, and the free market would reduce costs naturally, without government controls.
Also, the government requirement that hospitals provide free care for indigents is an unfunded mandate. The hospitals must charge paying patients more to make up for the losses. The government should pay for the care that it requires for indigents.
