IBD poll: 45% of doctors would consider quitting under Obamacare

Here’s a glimpse of the grim future under Obamacare. It’s not just about patients and consumers getting screwed. It’s about the enormous disincentives government-run health care would bring to the medical profession.

Investor’s Business Daily reports on the results of its heart-stopping poll of doctors:

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 contradicts the claims of not only the White House, but also doctors’ own lobby — the powerful American Medical Association — both of which suggest the medical profession is behind the proposed overhaul.

It also calls into question whether an overhaul is even doable; 72% of the doctors polled disagree with the administration’s claim that the government can cover 47 million more people with better-quality care at lower cost.

Read the whole thing — and don’t expect Obama’s health care czar’s office to report this in its “reality check” series.

Doesn’t fit the Obamacare narrative.
