I'm not buying it until "9 out of 10 doctors recommend it."

Classic. Out of all of the faxes sent to doctors, 4.3% responded. . And then out of the 4.3% who responded, you got this number. Strange you'd get a result touting such BS from 4.3% of the doctors surveyed. I guess the other 95.7% thought it such a joke they didn't even bother. The study is bogus and the results and any "reality" associated with it are bogus. What a joke. Seriously, did you even read the article?
Again, approximately 96 out of 100 doctors found the poll question so stupid they didn't even respond.

The political right does not have a monopoly on conspiracy or distrust for the government. Look at the Occupy Movement.

Let me get this straight... They were perfectly okay with people dying because they couldn't afford treatment and holding children hostage basically while their parents bankrupt themselves trying to save them. And yet they want to quit over Obamacare. You know what? To hell with American doctors. They make me sick.

Exactly the only real reason there is a projected shortage of doctors and engineers for that matter is the lack of opportunity for the education. When faced with taking on any large kind of debt for education believe it or not people do ask themselves what if I fail? Is that risk worth it? As it is now just a basic education is enough to bury you for large portions of your life in debt before you even get started. Start issuing serious targeted tax incentives in key fields you want to fill and the students will apply.
As to the OP you lost any chance of being taken seriously when you used a small sampled poll 86% of 699 doctors really? They couldn't find an even 700? And why would anyone take this virtually unheard of DPMA even the slightest bit seriously when the well known and respected AMA endorses this bill? Then you had the nerve to invoke Palin into your argument, if your in the medical field i feel sorry for those you treat. Palin? Really come on now your supposed to be educated.

So when American doctors quit the practice, will govt just bring foreigners in to fill the shoes? Is that the plan? Will they be people from socialist countries who don't care about freedom?edit on 10-7-2012 by ThirdEyeofHorus because: (no reason given)
