California’s pre-planned doctor shortage may be coming to fruition, according to a report from Capital Public Radio that makes the Department of Corrections look almost prescient.
The news comes on May Day as workers around the world celebrate the social and financial destruction caused by Communism.
“California’s shortage of primary care doctors will likely get worse, particularly in the Central Valley and Inland Empire,” CapRadio reports. “$55 million worth of federal and private grants for medical residencies in underserved areas is expiring. A deal for the state to step in is also in jeopardy.”
Finance Department spokesman Adam Dorsey told state senators, “It’s not to say that it’s not a worthy investment, it’s just not something the state can afford.”
The SacBrie reported last week on the successful pilot program operated by the California State Prison, Sacramento. “Prisons have a large population with serious mental health and behavioral problems,” a spokesman said, “making them the perfect places to model the potential effects of doctor shortages statewide.”
The program is intended to reveal “just how badly [the state] can damage the morale of doctors, nurses, and other providers before ‘compassion fatigue’ becomes fatal.”
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom explained that it’s about “more than just healthcare. We’re preparing to adopt the same kind of system that has been so successful in places like Cuba and Venezuela.”
