Now here’s some cheery news showing how popular the health care bill is:
A new poll that should cause significant concerns for backers of the pro-abortion Senate health care bill finds nearly half the nation’s physicians would consider quitting if the bill becomes law. The survey, appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine, indicates 46 percent of doctors would consider leaving their practice.
The poll finds 46.3% of primary care physicians (family medicine and internal medicine) feel that the passing of a public option will either force them out of medicine or make them want to leave medicine.
Doctors also seem to understand the impact that will have as 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.
Seems obvious that the nation’s doctors are very concerned about the proposed health care bill in Congress. And almost half say that they will either be forced out or want to leave their practice. And this bill is supposed to help the care American’s get? So what happens when nearly half of the nation’s doctors are gone?
The answer’s simple: since the health care bill will force people to buy insurance, even if they don’t want to, it’s not a stretch to imagine government forcing these doctors to remain in their jobs. After all, this bill isn’t about health care — it’s all about force.
