Doctors demand Obama apology
Pitching government control, President falsely accuses doctors of conspiring to make children sicker
WASHINGTON -- Dr. Richard S. Kerr, M.D., a West Virginia Libertarian Party member and a retired doctor with 36 years experience, asked President Barack Obama Thursday to apologize for comments made in his Wednesday night press conference accusing doctors of conspiring to make children sicker for profits.
President Obama should be ashamed of himself for trying to scare Americans into supporting his government takeover of medicine by falsely accusing doctors of making children sicker. I have never heard a more disgusting or blatantly phony conspiracy theory. We treat our patients with the respect, care and concern you will never find in Obamas government-run rationed care bureaucracy, said Dr. Kerr.
On behalf of my colleagues, I respectfully ask President Obama to apologize for such a slanderous lie and ask him to stop engaging in sickening conspiracy theories to push his government-run scheme. These cheap scare tactics are beneath the dignity of the office of The President and perfectly illustrate why more and more Americans are losing faith in Barack Obama.
In his Wednesday night press conference, Obama claimed, you come in and you've got a bad sore throat, or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, you know what, I make a lot more money if I take this kid's tonsils out.
For President Obamas information, pediatricians do not perform tonsillectomies. If he doesnt know that, then he has no business centrally planning your familys health care, said Dr. Kerr.

When Obambi gets off the teleprompter. gee he gets in trouble.
Yeah well, the doctors are racist!
Don’t hold your breath.
The kids the doctors treat are racist!!
Yeah, just keep burning those bridges, Mr. President. You’ve even ticked off many liberals. Keep burning those bridges and we’ll keep watching your poll numbers drop.
So if I understand correctly, reimbursement schedules influence health care decisions and that’s a bad thing, so the solution is to create the great-great-grand-daddy of all reimbursement schedules and make sure it apllies to each and every person in the USA. Okay. Got it.
But if that doesn’t work out so well, how about a return to the fundamental principles of personal choice and responsibility?
