Survey: 83% of Doctors Considered Quitting Over Obamacare Monday, 09 Jul 2012 07:44 PM By Todd Beamon Survey: 83% of Doctors Considered Quitting Over Obamacare Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving the profession over President Barack Obamas healthcare reform law and 63 percent have called for repealing all or part of it, according to a survey by the Doctor Patient Medical Association. The results from the non-partisan association of doctors and patients, founded last fall and headquartered in Alexandria, Va., is based on a national survey of 699 physicians, the Daily Caller reports. The Affordable Care Act was upheld last month by the U.S. Supreme Court. By 2020, the U.S. is expected to face a shortage of at least 90,000 doctors. Because the new healthcare law expands insurance coverage, it will increase physician demand. Doctors clearly understand what Washington does not that a piece of paper that says you are covered by insurance or enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid does not translate to actual medical care when doctors cant afford to see patients at the lowball payments, and patients have to jump through government and insurance company bureaucratic hoops, she said As for Obamacare specifically, the association said: Doctors say that a key government provision in the Affordable Care Act, the huge expansion of Medicaid enrollees, is likely to backfire, as 49 percent say they will stop accepting Medicaid payments. ---------How quaint, a $2 trillon program designed to turn our Medical industry into a socialist program will end up delivering LESS coverage to those who need it most and far fewer doctors overall, as far as I know we had a doctor shortage BEFORE this impact of Obamacare! These Democrat's are simply AMAZING!
