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.

Evan Bayh – Congress has not created one new job

Although I do not think it is the job of the federal government or Congress to create jobs, I do think it is their job to promote job growth. There is a difference between promote and provide. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) is certain Congress has not created one job in six months, and he may do better in the private sector.

Media left tells Obama to break kneecaps – violence against Republicans

The left does not represent peace, love and understanding. They are not tolerant either.
