While the President may claim doctors back his plan to overhaul the nation’s health care system, a recent poll tells an entirely different story:
Two of every three practicing physicians oppose the medical overhaul plan under consideration in Washington, and hundreds of thousands would think about shutting down their practices or retiring early if it were adopted, a new IBD/TIPP Poll has found.
The poll had a pretty large sample size, “with 1,376 practicing physicians chosen randomly throughout the country taking part.” And it corresponds to what I’ve heard from the doctors I know, with most (but not all) opposed to the various Democratic plans.
The poll offers this disturbing statistic: 45% of doctors would consider quitting under Obamacare. Guess that means not all of us will get to keep our doctor. I doubt most major news outlets will pick up this poll, but given the new media, this information will out.
