I just retired last week earlier than I thought I would ten years ago. I have many doctor friends and acquaintances who have done the same (retired early) with ongoing evolution toward nobamacare. It is easier and retains your integrity to retire, watch over your investments and watch the sun set...rather than buckle under to the government control nobamacare entails. nobamacare = stay healthy or die. Good luck everyone.
I just got out of the hospital and received excellent care. My doctor had to call in 2 different specialists to work with her to diagnose and cure my problem. It was a lung infection. Under Obamacare I know that treatment would not have happened. It wouldn’t have been cost effective.
People will receive very basic care under doctors and nurses who no longer see patients as human beings but as numbers to be dealt with as cheaply as possible. It will not even be our doctors deciding how much care we need but government panels. It’s sad but true.
My wife of more than 30 years is a general surgeon who has been in private practice since 1985. She typically works 12-14 hour days, with call every 5th weekend and rounds every third, plus “time-saving” electronic medical records (previously known as charts) to complete over each weekend. She is tired, and demoralized by Obamacare’s implications for her many Medicare patients who are very fearful they will lose her to Obamacare. And, guess what? They will lose her, and many, many physicians who are in their prime of experience.
We were outraged by Barack Obama talking two summers ago about greedy, overpaid doctors who amputate limbs and remove tonsils needlessly to make more money. Barack Obama and his minions know NOTHING about the sacrifice and hardships that are secondary to being a private practice physician in today’s regulated market.
I am angry - white hot angry - at what Obama has done to our country. Even more, I hold a raging, burning contempt for people who support Obama and his policies. I know it is anti-Christian, but I wish harm to those who would vote for him knowing what he has done to the USA.
