Nearly 50 Youngstown-Warren Physicians paid for and put their names on a paid advertisement appearing in local newspapers, warning of the risks and perils of "Obama Care." Interesting from the view that doctors tend to be a private lot, who practice medicine and stay out of politics.
Some of the highlights include the intense scrutiny that private offices will undergo to meet standards, with auditors pouring over their books to make sure the physician has met all guidelines of the "Affordable care act"
The auditors will make some their salary based on what they find. The Obama administration plans to hire 16,000 IRS agents to insure compliance with affordable care.
Many doctors feel they will be better off shuttering their offices and practicing from the hospitals. According to the letter ad in the newspaper,costs tend to rise in hospitals in comparison to the doctors office visits.
The doctors will be encouraged to join ACO's or accountable care organizations where physicians may have to deny care based on fiscal responsibility.
Vice president Joe Biden touted the plan, saying if Obama Care is so bad; "why does the AMA support it, why does AARP support it?" Well fewer than 17 per cent belong to AMA and ARP is selling insurance, AARP is sure to be a big winner when Medicare advantage is dismantled and they can sell more policies.
Secretary Sebelius called Obama care a badge of honor, but if so great why has company after company partitioned to be excluded. The latest being the fast food giant Darden foods.
Before you vote to retain President Obama ask yourself if you want a beauracy coming between you and your physician. If President Obama is re-elected their is little chance Obama Care will be repealed.
