Default Humur of Obamacare - What Doctors Have to Say

Obamacare has been passed and growing dissent among people can be felt to this Healthcare Reform. However during this heated wave of controversy, what doctors have to say about this reform:


Members of the medical community has weighed in on the new health care plan being developed by the Obama Team:

The Allergists thought that it should be scratched,
and the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had a bad gut feeling about it,
while the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt Obama is laboring under a misconception.

Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.

Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!"
while the Pediatricians said, 'Oh, Grow up!'

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness,
while the Radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.

The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow,
and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward,
but the Urologists were ****** off at the whole idea.

The Anesthesiologists thought the idea was a gas,
and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out,
leaving the entire decision up to the a**holes in Washington!

I live in the U.S. and while very few are jumping hoops about the contents of this health care bill, we know that it is a start toward something much more comprehensive. The AMA, below, isn't excited about it either, but they too know that this bill will be changed for the better at a later time.

AMA will work with Congress and the administration to make critical changes that cannot be addressed through the reconciliation process

For immediate release
March 21, 2010

Historic passage of health system reform by the U.S. House of Representatives today is an important step toward providing coverage to all Americans and improving our nation’s health system. Every day physicians see the devastating effect being uninsured has on the health of our patients. Physicians dedicate their lives to helping patients, and we have an historic opportunity now to do just that. While the House-passed bill isn’t perfect, we cannot let the perfect be the enemy of the good when it comes to something as important as the health of Americans.

I too live in the US and many of us see this bill as illegal and as the beginnings of tyranny. Per the 10th amendment of the US constitution:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

This means that unless the power to tax people out of their money for the purposes of healthcare is given to them by the constitution, it is expressly prohibited. This is nothing but the usurping of power designated to the people and the states by the federal government.

See some of the new taxes being authorized by the bill:

We're just getting started here. 16,500 new IRS agents will need to be hired to enforce this bill. Yep, positive change is coming our way, Amerika.
