So the AMA (which emails me but I don't belong to them anymore) has a email telling you these stories:

yes, we now have to be "educated" in the new health system. Never mind spending time trying to learn about diseases. We now need the equivalent of a speed reading course, a course in the language of "bureaucratese", and of course know all the signs and symptoms of not obeying big brother.
Then there is the abusurdity of the opiod regulations. Put a lable on the bottle, so that when the druggies steal our dying patient's medicines that they know they are addictive and dangerous.
Like other things from Obama's minions (and in this I point out the lopsided statistics of gun crime as the elephant in the living room), this ignores the real problem: a society that loves to get high. I mean, hey, when the biggest TV show on line is about a meth dealer, it's not like we try to portray people as evil, is it? (Or maybe the program did: a lot of moral people thought it did, but then a lot of good "christian" women liked 50 shades of grey: but here I stand with Janet Evanovich, who said she saw it as a lopsided relationship of abuse being romanticized.)
Luckily, I am retired, and too fuzzy minded and out of practice enough not to care. The only people I see are employees etc. with viruses.
Speaking of viruses: I just saw one of our (part time) drivers and his family all with flu like symptoms and fever. I saw an employee last week who also lived on a farm with the same thing. Sounds like an influenza epidemic. I'll have to check the news and my cousin Dr. Angie to see if there is a flu epidemic, or if something else is going on.
