Pinsky suggested that President Barack Obama’s reforms will lead to a meltdown in his field.
“Initially, there will be lots of resources for everything, and quickly they will realize that they can’t afford it,” he said. “And then they will begin cranking it down, and they will crank it down rapidly, so far, very fast, that doctors and hospitals will be working for free, something we have become accustomed to.
“And because it’s the federal government, it won’t respond to anything, there will be no negotiations, and you will see a massive flight from the field of physicians, and hospital closures.”
Pinsky predicted that changes coming into effect next month will immediately motivate other doctors to seek jobs outside of the system.
“The best ones are the ones leaving first,” he said. “Because they could do other things. Why should they bother with this?”
