    IBD polling, great article. We keep hearing the propaganda from the Obama care nuts, stating that the AMA is in full support of this. Well apparently many physicians don't quite want to go along with this plan. Consider this, if 45% of our physicians retire or quit the profession and we add an additional 30 million newly insured people, how much access are you going to have? very litte, think this might cause a little rationing. Hell, yes.

    The headline of this thread is a lie.

    The article says that 45% of doctors would "consider" quitting. This can mean absolutely anything. Next time, read what you're throwing against the wall.

    Quit and go where? And why should I believe a news source so obviously biased toward the Health Care Industry that is so determined to keep America from having a real health care system.

    IBD polls are about as accurate and reliable as Sarah Palin's foreign policy experience. IBD = irritable bowel disease

    Also, IBD's surveys have a history of being poorly designed.
    Looking at the survey questions, a lot of them are written in a loaded matter.
    Also, their presidential election polling had McCain winning the youth vote 74-22.

    I find it very curious, that instead of getting physicians, insurance people, business people, accountants, together we have a bunch of no-nothing, never-did nothings, attempting to write legislation that they know NOTHING about, any wonder why both these plans are dead on arrival.

    If any of these 2 plans were the cure all for health care reform, you would have physicians selling it all over the country. I have not seen one that's got up and promoted either one of these plans. I am very skeptical that until they bring the REAL professionals on board they will get no-where on either plan, or have a good one in the end.

    The President keeps touting that the AMA is behind his plan, when you consider that the AMA only represents 18% of physicians it represents the MINORITY of physicians and not the MAJORITY.

    The physicians I see are not AMA members.

    I did read it. It may not be fact now, but it is something that we should all be a little concerned about. I have not known IBD to be a bogus institution and if you have some links that demonstrate they are then please provide them.

    Then you might try and lighten up a little bit, it's better for your health. Keeps you away from the doctor.

    Inded. In late October.

    They are, not to exagerate even in the slightest, incompetent.
