Should You Be Allowed Your Choice of Doctor?

Should you be allowed your own choice in doctor? It seems like a no brainer.What about senior citizens? Should they be allowed to go to the doctor of their choice or keep the doctor they had before they crossed that magic threshold into senior citizenship?This is just common sense. Or at least it should be. But in 1995 the issue came before the United States Senate. Dan Coats was in the Senate in 1995. He voted against allowing senior citizens to choose their own doctor if they were on medicare.
