    Will not see Obamacare patients.

    All of this was foreseen.

    The Revolt of the Kulak doctor wreckers who would refuse to give up the fruits of their labors for the State.

    From Richard Pollock, Doctors boycotting California’s Obamacare exchange

    An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s Obamacare health insurance exchange and won’t participate, the head of the state’s largest medical association said.

    “It doesn’t surprise me that there’s a high rate of nonparticipation,” said Dr. Richard Thorp, president of the California Medical Association.

    Thorp has been a primary care doctor for 38 years in a small town 90 miles north of Sacramento. The CMA represents 38,000 of the roughly 104,000 doctors in California.

    “We need some recognition that we’re doing a service to the community. But we can’t do it for free. And we can’t do it at a loss. No other business would do that,” he said.

    California offers one of the lowest government reimbursement rates in the country — 30 percent lower than federal Medicare payments. And reimbursement rates for some procedures are even lower.

    You know what must be done.

    Someone needs to call Governor Perry….. seems like a bunch of those California doctors might be interested in learning about the benefits of moving to Texas where we have some decent tort reform on the books (lots of work still to do there), no personal income tax and your choice of world class hospitals to work in.

    Texas hasn’t been immune to the harms of Obamacare, but at least we have a legislature, Attorney General and Governor who have worked hard to minimize them.
