Is Obamacare a Mistake?

Four prominent doctors say Obamacare is a travesty and a fraud. Their denunciations could not be more blunt. They’re even worried that thousands of doctors will quit practicing medicine rather than participate in the Affordable Health Care Act’s transformation of American medicine.

“People don’t want to “share” their doctor – they want his undivided attention,” writes Dr. Jane M. Orient, M.D., at the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine. “They don’t want the excellent facilities near their home to be moved far away in order to even out ‘healthcare disparities.’ They don’t want funds used for treating for their child’s rare cancer to be shifted into buying free drugs for people with HIV or AIDS.”

The new Accountable Care Organizations being set up under Obamacare “will be the medical version of Soviet collective farms,” writes Dr. Alieta Eck, M.D., a graduate of Rutgers and the St. Louis School of Medicine. She studied Internal Medicine at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey and has been in private practice with her husband, Dr. John Eck, M.D. since 1988. “The Affordable Care Act,” she says, ”must be repealed before it has a chance to ruin the best medical care in the world.

If Canadian socialized medicine has been a disaster, writes G. Keith Smith, M.D., it will look wonderful after Obamacare is implemented. “The failures of the Canadian health care system are seen by Canadians as the fault of their government,” says Dr. Smith Smith, a board-certified anesthesiologist and co-founder of The Surgery Center of Oklahoma City. “The failures of ObamaCare will be seen as the fault of the greedy corporations running it, another one standing by to take its place.” This may be Obama’s cruelest secret, says Smith.

“Many promises were made to different groups to sell the new healthcare law to a skeptical public. Having watched the medical insurance games–government and private–for my whole career, I thought these promises were too good to be true,” says Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet. “What is coming to light now is like ‘The Big Con’ that Robert Redford’s character skillfully pulled off in the classic movie The Sting. Only the Pelosi-Reid-Obama trio forced through an even bigger sting on the entire country, especially the very constituencies they promised their healthcare law would help.”
