The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has just hit another speed bump on its fast track to nowhere.
Healthcare professionals are warning that there could be a wide gap between the number of people seeking medical treatment under Obamacare and the number of doctors available to provide it.
A triple threat — more people needing care, tens of thousands of doctors reaching retirement age and a growing number of physicians getting so frustrated with bureaucracy that they want out — could undermine any improvements the law envisages.
The large number of retiring doctors emphasizes the gap that is likely to widen between the number of people needing medical care and the pool of medical professionals.
Avik Roy of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research told Fox News some doctors are even leaving their profession prematurely to avoid the headache of Obamacare.
