health Care

The idea that health care is a matter of insuring the uninsured is incorrect. In the absence of increasing the supply of health care providers, it only means demand for health care will explode, swamping existing facitities.

A suggestion: remove the choke hold the AMA has on the supply of physicians!
This could be done by certifying many more medical schools in the United States.

Currently, under the guise of "maintaining quality" the AMA chokes off the supply of physicians by refusing to Certify many fine Universities that would like to open medical schools. Granted, no one would like "fly by night medical schools" to sprout up, selling MD degrees for $10,000 and no questions asked. But there are plenty of legitimate Universities that would like to do so, and should not be proscribed from doing so by the AMA.
