RomneyCare --> ObamaTax

One presumes that this is a rhetorical question:

"Why is it so hard to find a doctor? Half of primary care physicians in [Massachusettes] are not accepting new patients."

The author posits that it's a function of age; that is, many patients are Baby Boomers, and so are their doc's. As the former group ages and needs more care, those in the latter are ready to retire.

One supposes that there is a grain of truth in this, but the real reason comes in a bit of belated self-awareness:

"Meanwhile, when the state reformed health care in 2006, it expanded insurance coverage, increasing access to care without boosting the supply of doctors."

Gee, ya think?
