Rightwing Investment Info Broker Claims Doctors Are in the Health Biz for the Money.

US physicians work in the health care business for the money? That would seem to be the premise of a *MASSIVE* poll done by Investors' Business Daily.

45% Of Doctors Would Consider Quitting If Congress Passes Health Care Overhaul

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.

So this purported 'scientific' sampling of doctors who read IBD and share its views are *MASSIVELY* out of step with their colleagues in the AMA. What a shock.

And the response to this *MASSIVE* poll is predictably rightwingbatshit teabagger frothing-at-the mouth lunatic:

Doctors Threaten to Go Galt if ObamaCare Passes

It would be a miracle of biblical proportions if Big Government's minions could decrease costs while increasing coverage, as Democrats have been promising to do when they seize control of the healthcare industry.

Miracle of "biblical proportions" is the US religious rightwing zealot term for *MASSIVE* I'd guess.

Who are these so-called investors business experts anyway? Oh wait. Gotcha!

Just noticed this blog post about the majority support that physicians surveyed by the New England Journal of Medicine give to a reform of health care in the US.

If that poll is true (which I doubt--IBD being a lying load of dreck on every other point anyway), 45% of doctors are going to find themselves out of a job.

Good luck with that Galt-going, greedheads. You're gonna need it!

Bina, go to the second-last link in dBO's post and you'll see how reputable Investors' Business Daily is. :D

Yeah, I know them. They got Venezuela wrong (repeatedly), too.

Too bad there's no way of shutting them down. This kind of crapaganda ends up costing innocent people shitloads of money.
