    Physicians speak out on health care bill

    Doctors opposing health care bill jam town hall meeting | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    “The bottom line is that doctors don't want socialized medicine — another flawed health care system like Medicare. They don't believe it will lower the costs or improve quality,” Brady said. “Medicare is already going bankrupt and not quality care. It also shifts medical costs onto other paying customers. It needs to be fixed first.”
    Seems like doctors around here do not want to see another broken system foisted on them.

    They don't believe it will lower the costs or improve quality
    It won't lower costs that is for sure.

    It'll need increased public spending and if it is 90 billion in UK with a population of 65 million. It'll go into a heck lot more for a country with 300 million.

    If doctors do not support it, no way will NHS go through in US. You need them on side.

    It's kind of hard to support or not support a bill that hasn't even left commitee, has not been made public, and hasn't come up for a vote.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    HAS NOT BEEN MADE PUBLIC????????

    Search Results - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    That's not making it public?

    That's not making it public?

    House Committee passes HR3200 - America's Affordable Health Choices Act | Democracy for New Hampshire

    And I have no plans on reading it! Because it will likely change numerous times before a final version is passed by both chambers.

    This is how the lunatic left proposes to have new ideas. By deliberate and willful and even blind ignorance.

    Left? Me? What the hell are you talking about? I'll read the synopsis of the final bill. No need to read the initial bill. That's not what is likely to pass. I have better things to do than read a bill that is not going to become law. Plus, what do you think I'm going to do about it? My Senators and Congressman are voting against. My work here is done.
