Something to think about

In the comments section of this WSJ article:
Perhaps we conservatives have it wrong. Medical costs in total nationally will go down, simply because the number and quality of doctors will become so restricted that care will not be available. Therefore most of us will be unable to buy care, even if we might afford it. But then if we appear to aford (sic) it, the government will tax us more in the name of "fairness and equality".

I will have to think about it a lot to figure about what ye conservatives are wrong according to the commenter. If what he describs happens, wouldn't that mean ye conservatives were right?
I am not a conservative - at least not the way I think most people define it.

I liked the counter-thinking that the poster suggested - the supply-side effects of the legislation have not been much discussed beyond the insurance companies. If doctors flee the industry, retire early, or people choose to not pursue medical degrees in the future, then there will be less spending on health care which will lead to some "savings."
