|SERVICE MEMBERS HOME OWNERSHIP TAX ACT OF 2009 MOTION TO PROCEED. Text From the Congressional Record.|
Mr. COBURN. Probably not. But the Senator sparks one question. Think about this, and I have experienced this as a physician.
I care for patients and they lose their job, they have a financial catastrophe, and all of a sudden they become dependent on Medicaid. We continue to see those patients. But do you know what normally happens?
That doesn't mean there are not truly caring physicians in this country, but it has to be said, outside of pediatrics, if you want to look at quality parameters, the Medicaid population ends up going to the less-qualified, the less-experienced, the less-good-outcome physicians in this country.
