ObamaCare: American Physicians Fear Obama’s Healthcare Reform

Thomson Reuters National Physicians Survey

United States physicians are not too happy or optimistic regarding ObamaCare.

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. doctors surveyed fear healthcare reform could worsen care for patients, by flooding their offices and hurting income, according to a Thomson Reuters survey released Tuesday.

The survey of more than 2,900 doctors found many predict the legislation will force them to work harder for less money.

“When asked about the quality of healthcare in the U.S. over the next five years, 65 percent of the doctors believed it would deteriorate with only 18 percent predicting it would improve,” Thomson Reuters, parent company of Reuters, said in a statement.

The U.S. House of Representatives began debate Tuesday on efforts to repeal President Barack Obama’s overhaul of the U.S. healthcare industry.

Repeal of the bill is likely to fail in the Senate.

Of course, American physicians see the problems associated with ObamaCare since they will be on the front lines.

ObamaCare is a loser for the physicans and a loser for the quality of American health care – the doctors know. ObamaCare is a socialistic, redistributionist scheme that will bankrupt America unless there is medical care rationing.

The House and Senate should vote for repeal.
