They haven’t gotten much press, but there are thousands of doctors across the nation who are fed up with the Obama administration’s move to commandeer the medical industry through the new healthcare law. Thousands of brave doctors who are, according to their website, deeply concerned about “the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship from third-party intrusion” are, and have been, speaking out against Obamacare.
In a nutshell, the National Doctors Tea Party Movement sees the “casualties” of Obamacare as including, “jobs, medical innovation, patient privacy, ready access to excellent medical services, financial security for millions who worked and saved, the right of conscience, and the credit rating of the United States.” Perhaps the most startling concern that they have is that the new healthcare law “will drive up to half of America’s physicians out of practice.” That means longer wait times to see a Doctor and it will likely end up leading to rationing. In fact, an article at their website points out that “A national health board is a first step to picking winners and losers among patients, saving money instead of lives.”
A www.lifenews.com article on Monday reported that the Obama administration “officially approved the first instance of taxpayer funded abortions under the new national government-run health care program.”
Governor Edward Rendell quietly submitted a plan which will grant Pennsylvania $160 million in federal taxpayer money to pay for abortions.
Legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee told Life News that, “This is just the first proof of the phoniness of President Obama’s assurances that federal funds would not subsidize abortion – but it will not be the last.” Johnson added that, “President Obama successfully opposed including language in the bill to prevent federal subsidies for abortions, and now the Administration is quietly advancing its abortion-expanding agenda through administrative decisions such as this, which they hope will escape broad public attention.”
Abortion is likely one of the elements of “right of conscience” that The National Doctors Tea Party Movement are concerned about, as well as rationed care being forced on the elderly and the handicapped.
According to a www.wnd.com article on Monday, the National Doctors Tea Party will be gathering in San Diego on August 7, 2010. There will be several speakers and the event is free and open to both doctors and concerned citizens, but they ask that those who would like to attend sign up at their website or call 1-800-635-1196.
