    1. If this actually is an exacerbation to the nursing shortage, it's because it is too socialistic.

    2. One of the primary issues contributing to the shortage of nurses is not at the federal level, but rather at the employer level. Hospitals should see what other facilities are doing to retain staff instead of just blaming the government.

    The nursing shortage didn't just happen in 2000.

    Including the feds in finding a solution is practical, but depending on them to lead the way is ludicrous.
