Probably the greatest benefit to socialized health care is the freedom inherent in having our vocation changed from a profession to a job. We’ll no longer have to keep up on the latest medications, procedures and research in our field. Cutting-edge medicine will be reduced anyway, given that investigative medical pursuits will no longer be funded. As federal employees, the quality of our work will be irrelevant. It’s not like we can get fired, and besides, where’s the public going to turn? Canada?
Indeed, where will they turn? But then, ending private choice is the very purpose of imposing government control over the health care system.
