In this post at the Foundry, a doctor accounts why he does not approve of Obamacare.  Unfortunately, everything Dr. Shepherd loves about his job is now at risk because of Obamacare. Hehas run a family practice in Lewisville, Texas, for 35 years. He’s concerned about the impact of the law on the care he is able to offer his patients.

“There’s a lot of administrative work already, which is taking away from patient care,” he said. Of the practice’s 15 employees, five do only paperwork, and they are constantly fighting with insurance companies and Medicare.
