Thanks Obamacare: 83% of Doctors Surveyed Say They May Quit
The Doctor Patient Medical Association has released a new survey of about 700 doctors, and the results are bleak. Scary bleak. Among other dismal figures, Doctors' Attitudes on the Future of Medicine: What‚Äôs Wrong, Who‚Äôs to Blame, and What Will Fix It found that 83% of respondents are contemplating leaving the industry if Obamacare is fully implemented, owing to its disastrous projected consequences. Indeed, they openly blame the healthcare law for their industry's woes:
Only the smug and stingy who says, "I got mine! Tough if you loose your job, or whatever, etc." It has been needed for a long time or the Republicans wouldn't have suggested it in the first place. Republican Origins of Democratic Health Care Provision and of course Romney was instrumental in the affordable health care of Massachusetts. If the present-day Republicans worked with Obama on health care they could have blocked the abortion part, or at least would then had the moral high ground if they couldn't gotten that written into the law. Even now are doubt if abortions are mandatory under the new law. Yes, wait until the Romish council of Bishops order their minions on the Supreme Court to support something you don't like, then you won't be praising them so much!

False premise- that there need be "an alternative" to Obamacare.
So Democrat Nelson thinks we should be forced to buy health insurance under threat of fines, and pay for contraceptives and abortions? His "compromise" isn't. What Obamacare is, is non-affordable extortion, with a number of yes-men bobbleheads in agreement.
PS the court is ruling on constitutionality, which thankfully won't be based on Nelson's typical political speech. Note the usual buzzword "children, seniors, families, and the newcomer "small business owners," (who btw will be the ones to cough up the most money to pay for this anti-American debacle. And seniors who have medicare advantage will also be hit.)
PS tell Ben 21 year olds aren't children. That may be hard for a Democrat to swallow, seeing as they envision everyone as wards of the state.

Senator Ben Nelson wrote: Critics Should Offer Alternatives
If the activist Supreme Court rules as expected and tosses out the law, the Tea Party wing and other critics will then be obligated to stop these grave consequences that will hurt thousands of Nebraskans by finally offering alternatives they‚Äôve avoided putting forward for two years.
Should they fail, we‚Äôll know all along they were just playing politics with the lives of children, seniors, small business owners and families.
jpw, no I'm not worried about gm products, on the whole. However I'm uncomfortable with cross-species experiments. One can't depend on scientists to act ethically. It could very well be an area where ethicists (you know religious leaders should have some input on.)
Yes, dopey, I promise never to eat a GM car ever again! I might not eat very much General Mills products either unless they lower their prices.
no worries Jim. something like 70% of foods in your supermarket are made from GM's, so you get to be the guinea pig.
and mutant humans, quite possibly.
good part about it is that the synthetically altered seeds (like putting animal genes in a plant, mixing species and such) end up being sterile, as well as those pigs who eat it, so the mutants won't breed. that's one convenient side-effect of the proud modern darwinist.
My suggestion is not go munching on that grass in Texas, and you should be ok, jpw. It looks rather suspicious to me, q.v., GM Grass Linked to Texas Cattle Deaths, that this should happen 15 years after using this grass, even if there has been a drought? I have a feeling that mutant humans of the anti-gm variety may have had something to do with it. It will be an interesting story to follow, but I don't think it has anything with 83% of the veterinarians quitting--let alone doctors.
June 23, 2012, CBS News "GM grass linked to Texas cattle deaths"
darwins eugenics continues
other nations have fought hard to prevent this industry. most americans don't even know about it.
but on June 21, 2012, Senate voted "no" on the GMO labeling bill. apparently it is best that americans not know. and since its unlikely to be positively discussed by the CFR, neither will the church ethicists, and neither will our churches.
Hmm, blaming the gun rather than the shooter? By the way, another view on Universal Health Care from our Nebraska Senator, Ben Nelson, Affordable Health Care at Risk. I can't blame what happened to my aunt on universal health care -- because we don't have any!

Smart people would expatriate from cursed lands like these but not even a tenth of 1% ever do, everyone else bows down to the antichrist system as was foretold and receives his mark so that they can buy and sell and be left alone. Mark my Words.
Unfortunately, many of parts of the country go overboard in this, but in this state it is rather too muted. I would think the number of doctors that should have had their licenses removed, but usually didn't are really fairly well known, because there just isn't that many of them almost everyone has heard of them, but little is done with them, so they get to continue to build a bad reputation for themselves unless patients are saved by an act of God.
MMW, unfortunately, there is a small number, well at least I hope it is small here, in Nebraska where an incompetent father who's a doctor will get his equally incompetent son into medical school etc., and get a degree. This legacy plan has got to cease. I had an aunt who died from incompetence of doctors, Incompetent doctors and many other faux-professionals must like to malpractice in Nebraska since our populace has a strong dislike for suing people.
Not even 1% of them will quit I guarantee it, mark my words.

Ah, Kenny, now if I can only get you to read fellow my other posts so closely.
Don, just do point out that I'm not against all doctors or even the majority of them, because I've had are my family has had good doctors who were Masons, Seventh-day Adventists, Jews, Catholics, and even atheists. But, Don, you might have googled some more and found this: Death Rate Drops during Doctors Strike.
Hippocrates wrote: If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.‚Ä¶ It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.‚Ä¶ Everything in excess is opposed to nature.‚Ä¶
of course I'm only giving quotations that I agree with.
Don Randolph wrote: A wonderful idea, but which one?
My apologies, Don. It was not the Oath I was thinking of, but a quote from Hippocrates:
‚ÄúEveryone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food.‚ÄĚ

A wonderful idea, but which one? The original Oath hasn't been used in medicine since 1870 and the modern one is so watered down it means nothing.
As much as people complain about the cost of medical care and assume that it is set solely by the physicians who provide it themselves, let's see what it is like when a person can't get care, regardless of the cost.
When the practicing neurosurgeons in W.Va. (Google it) went on strike a few years back, more than a few people understood what it is like without access to timely medical care (something the government can't mandate or provide) and, sadly, some didn't live.
So, complain away now, but save some of your breath for the future,when you will really get to complain.
Before I'm accused of knowing no more than you on the subject, I left the field of anesthesia six months ago after 30 years of putting up with the restrictions. I didn't gouge anyone, did many cases for free for those who couldn't afford to pay and finally got tired of being told by insurance companies how I should care for my patients (after all they must be boarded in anesthesia to be an insurance adjuster surely).
