Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving their practices over President Barack Obamas health care reform law, according to a survey released by the Doctor Patient Medical Association.
The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.
Even if doctors do not quit their jobs over the ruling, America will face a shortage of at least 90,000 doctors by 2020. The new health care law increases demand for physicians by expanding insurance coverage. This change will exacerbate the current shortage as more Americans live past 65.
By 2025 the shortage will balloon to over 130,000 . . . .

No big surprise here.
...they don’t like that our government just declared them all slaves?
Let them quit and let 0bama chose some GOOD doctors that are concerned for saving taxpayers....I mean people!
Doctors just want you to stay alive for money but when that is gone they just asoon you die quickly.
Government will be different, they are compassionate politicial doctors after all.
That’s actually part of the plan.
I see no problem here. Obama will just train the next generation of health care workers in Cuba and all will be just swell.
Who is John Galt?
to have a government run system first you must take over all hospitals and be the employer of all who work there and do the same for doctors and nurses
What an opportunity for the GOP.
70% of AMERICANS HATE OBAMACARE/ROMNEYCARE.
83% OF Docs are about to quite because of it.
and WHOM DOES THE STUPID PARTY look to? behind the
backstabbing and cheating and changing rules after the fact?
To MY CANDIDATE, Mitt Romney,
SOLE AUTHOR OF ... DEATH PANELS. And he is proud of it.
Obviously this "organization", which has an incredibly phony sounding name and is run by a healthcare industry lobbyist, is probably being paid for by insurance companies.
Be interesting to see dear leader’s reaction if they did. Makes him look like quite the fool if he’s outdone by doctors simply telling him to go to hell...which raises the question of how long such freedom will remain in America.
I won’t know until the sequel to the movie comes out. Never read the book.
CRASH AND BURN, MAVERICK...CRASH AND BURN!!
George W. Bush and Barack Obama somehow ended up at the same barber shop.
As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word
was spoken. The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear
it would turn to politics.
As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Obama in his chair
reached for the aftershave.
Obama was quick to stop him saying, No thanks, my wife Michelle will smell
that and think I’ve been in a whorehouse.’
The second barber turned to Bush and said, ‘How about you sir?’
Bush replied, ‘Go ahead; my wife doesn’t know what the inside of a
whorehouse smells like.’
Indeed, going Galt if Obama is reannointed is many peoples plan. A general strike by the actual producers until Bambi resigns may be what is needed.
everything he touches, he destroys.
For curing a headache AND gout?
That's a darn good price.
Nice. I like it.
The headline ALONE is true.
What does that tell you?
The US has been importing foreign doctors for quite some time now.
Some good, some not so...
Do the importers care?
Long as they fill a slot.
