Thanks Obamacare: 83% of Doctors Surveyed Say They May Quit - Kate Hicks

The Doctor Patient Medical Association has released a new survey of about 700 doctors, and the results are bleak. Scary bleak. Among other dismal figures, Doctors' Attitudes on the Future of Medicine: What’s Wrong, Who’s to Blame, and What Will Fix It found that 83% of respondents are contemplating leaving the industry if Obamacare is fully implemented, owing to its disastrous projected consequences. Indeed, they openly blame the healthcare law for their industry's woes:


90% say the medical system is on the WRONG TRACK 83% say they are thinking about QUITTING 61% say the system challenges their ETHICS 85% say the patient-physician relationship is in a TAILSPIN 65% say GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT is most to blame for current problems 72% say individual insurance mandate will NOT result in improved access care 49% say they will STOP accepting Medicaid patients 74% say they will STOP ACCEPTING Medicare patients, or leave Medicare completely 52% say they would rather treat some Medicaid/Medicare patient for FREE 57% give the AMA a FAILING GRADE representing them 1 out of 3 doctors is HESITANT to voice their opinion 2 out of 3 say they are JUST SQUEAKING BY OR IN THE RED financially 95% say private practice is losing out to CORPORATE MEDICINE 80% say DOCTORS/MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS are most likely to help solve things 70% say REDUCING GOVERNMENT would be single best fix.

If this isn't an airtight argument for the repeal of Obamacare, nothing is. When the people providing the actual healthcare are thinking of getting out of the game, the system is clearly broken. Here's hoping the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare this month.


"95% say private practice is losing out to corporate medicine" So, who's the culprit? 6/20/12
