Contrary to cynics opinions, Wisconsin authorities are taking this issue seriously. I can't predict how it will come out - and neither can anyone else. But it is definitely not being swept under the carpet.
I wouldn’t hold my breath, they’re all scumbag dhims.
Good thing! They should investigate for medicaid and medicare fraud too. If they will lie about the sick notes they will lie about other things too.
Oh Brother! We all suffer from stress why don't he/they write all of us excuse notes and just let the whole system collapse because nobody's around to do any work. Let us become a 3rd world country like most overseas because people are out there protesting this that or the other.
Now if only liberal lawyers could be held to a cannon of ethics.......(/sarcasm).
Why do I have the funny feeling that the final report will say “the evidence was inconclusive”?
I disagree. This is just a way of sweeping it under the carpet and hiding behind privacy until the heats off.
If they're serious, then these "Doctors" should lose their licenses to practice like a lawyer would be disbarred.
But political correctness being what it is ...
Obamacare has already kicked in. He needs to resign now.
They will be held accountable for nothing. This is America 2011. Don’t hold your breath.
Outsiders will have a good opportunity to judge the ethics and honesty of the Wisconsin Medical School.
I hope they get a passing grade.
I’d say a three-month suspension, and termination of employment, would be about right.
Probably because that is what you want to happen.
There is a large contingent of vocal libertarians on this who are deeply invested in GOP failure.
The word on the street is that two of the lab coat clad women writing doctor notes were just actors. The notes they wrote are of no value if traced. the Doctor registration numbers were made up
UW Health, don't use words dems don't understand.
Dr. Lou Sanner, a family medicine physician at UW Health, told the Associated Press he was one of the doctors involved. He said wrote notes for protesters who were suffering from stress.
So, Doc, why weren't they at home resting instead of traveling to the capitol? If they were stressed enough to be out of work, they should have been too stressed to go on the road. Do you typically prescribe "go on a road trip and attend a protest rally" to your stressed patients? I think I would have told them, go home and rest. Get a note from your regular doctor.
That sounds like a really lame attempt to cover up after being caught.
Want it to happen? Are you kidding? But this is Madison....liberals. They see things that don’t exist and refuse to see what is right in front of their face.
I imagine the people who are out of work because the unions are sucking up all the resources for themselves are stressed a lot more than these pansies are.
Imagine how this plays out when OweBama is in total control of ALL of America’s doctors. If this were 2012 he would just ORDER the doctors to ‘cover’ his Unionistas. This our last chance to real in the corrupt unions.

Also, I suspect there are laws against impersonating a physician.
They could def lose their jobs. I cant imagine risking one’s career for this.
