Trump's claim of fleeing doctors rings false

No wonder Trump is trying to portray his health care plan as being good, only it isn't. It will result in less coverage for Americans and higher costs for those who are insured. Professionals are soundly DENOUNCING the American Health Care Act or Trump/Ryancare. Republicans should never have engaged in changing things that they don't know how to fix properly. But this will most assuredly show those who voted for right-wingers that they need to elect Democrats in 2018 and 2020 if they want to retain the proper coverage they had come to depend upon and truly deserve to have. The GOP Plan is good as DOA at this point and right-wingers know it. Their plan is simply No Good and will be of benefit to no one.


AP FACT CHECK: Trump's claim of fleeing doctors rings false - ABC News

"Many of our best and brightest are leaving the medical profession entirely because of Obamacare," Trump told his audience at a Monday night rally in Louisville, Kentucky."
"In fact, the number of doctors in the U.S. actively caring for patients grew from 799,501 in 2010, when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, to 860,939 in 2015, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. The American College of Physicians, which represents internists, the largest specialty, says its enrollment of new doctors has increased every year since 2012. The American Academy of Family Physicians has seen its membership grow from 94,620 to 124,900 since 2008."
"The largest professional organizations that represent doctors are opposed to Trump's efforts to repeal and replace the Obama law. The internists' group says the proposal "will likely result in less access to coverage and higher costs for millions of patients." And the family physicians' group says the proposal threatens the "significant increase in coverage" that the current law has provided."
