    Here's the actual NEJM link. Wouldn't want people to accuse you of linking to a biased source.

    Physician Survey: Health Reform?s Potential Impact on Physician Supply and Quality of Medical Care


    On one hand, I can see why this would seem somewhat startling. But on the other hand, I don't really trust the numbers. It's not unreasonable to assume that a lot of these doctors that are against reform would say this even though they'd never follow through.

    How many people who said they'd leave the country if Obama was elected actually have?

    That's just what Obama want. Less doctors mean Ezekiel Emanuel gets to kill off our elders under his "Complete Lives System"

    have you ever worked for physicians? they absolutely hate paperwork and bureacracy, nothing will be done to stem harassing lawsuits, and they will have 30-50 million (depends on who is talking) more patients dumped into the system that's exactly what many will say, fuck it. time to get out.

    which makes it clear you don't know physicians, most don't "just" practice medicine, most of the ones I know have a business on the side. many are in small limited private practice and in specialities such as dermatology. and refuse medicare patients. Know why? They hate friggin paperwork and bureacracy.. go figure,,

    Libs would love this. Those damn Doctors make too much money anyway. Plus, Libs love chaos so this would be perfect.

    If this bill passes, I think you will also see a massive amount of Dr's that will only take private insurance and cash.

    I call bullcrap...

    first it is not cnn

    second -even the New england journal of medicine did not perform the poll, some recruiting firm did it and there is absolutely no specifics of how the poll was taken or what actual questions were asked nor the amount of people polled.....

    the insurance companies HAVE ALWAYS required paperwork, so let's hear from these doctors in this supposed poll, WHY they feel this way....IF THEY ACTUALLY DO....
