Doctors to Obamacare – “I quit!” Plus Hatch to Congress – “You’re nuts”

Forget the AMA, most Doctors either don’t belong or don’t buy into it’s political agenda. Doctor after doctor who have called my show have said the same thing, government take over of healthcare, either through bureaucratic determination of protocol or pay, will either make them retire, or wish they were.

46.3% of primary care physicians (family medicine and internal medicine) feel that the passing of health reform will either force them out of medicine or make them want to leave medicine.

41% of physicians feel that income and practice revenue will “decline or worsen dramatically” with a public option.

72% of physicians feel that a public option would have a negative impact on physician supply, with 45%feeling it will “decline or worsen dramatically” and 27% predicting it will “decline or worsen somewhat.

Doctors don’t like this. They know, as the SOS pointed out months ago, if this passes they are toast. And public opposition, even in Connecticut is growing.
Add to that the special deals … and as Senator Hatch told Greta last night, the Democrats are crazy if they pass this thing.

    I mentioned this before, but it bears repeating: my personal doctor is livid about what the socialists are trying to do to health care in this country.  It was the first time I have ever heard him use a profanity in the office.  I seriously believe he will close his practice, with walk service and at least 15 employees, if this takeover occurs.
