Skip to comments.Obamacare seeks to segregate patients, doctors by race

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under Obamacare if you both belong to the same race.
Obamacares spectacular flop of a rollout distracts from its crude calculus that encourages the allocation of healthcare resources along racial lines and a doctor-patient system splintered into ethnicities.
While the 2010 Patient Protecion and Affordable Care Acts language on diversity sounds innocuous, a review of the frankly separatist thinking of the laws ardent supporters indicates Obamacare is aiming for a health care system that puts political correctness above the struggle against illness and death.

Healthcare in Norway is proceeding along the same lines.
Good grief! I practiced nursing for many years in hospitals in TX, DC, MD, and OK.
All hospitals were desegregated by then..
That was over 50 years ago. Now they want to segregate them? Unreal!
So...are they next going to separate us by political party, by education level, and then by religion?
Forward to Obamaparadise like in Haiti.
I had a remarkable doctor for my first child. She was Indian (as in India); and, a much sought after obstetrician with a wonderful reputation. I guess I wouldn’t be able to have her for a doctor under O-care.
My mother, at 96, has no Caucasian doctors. All Indian.
Close second: Eric Holder.
Well, it is good news at least for a while, though it would force me to change doctors, at least I wont get stuck with an affirmative action doctor, at least until minorities thenselves start bitching about the white conspiracy to get all the good doctors while sticking them with the krappy ones (kind of llike schools being unfair if the white % geta over 50 or something
“The key phrase is race concordance a word which means a state in which things agree and do not conflict with one another.
There is evidence that race concordance defined as shared racial or ethnic identities between clinicians and patients is related to patient reports of satisfaction, participatory decision making, timeliness of treatment, and trust in the health system, the report reads. In other words, fixing the broken U.S. healthcare system means assigning Hispanic doctors to Hispanic patients, African American doctors to African American patients, Creole doctors to Creole patients, and so on.”
So all of this “diversity training and coordination” that those of us in the health professions have been forced to sit thru for the past several years is just so much BS? More job losses due to ObamaCare...no more diversity coordinators or directors of “mission”.
When you apply on line there is a place where they ask your race. I heard this on Hannity from a knowledgeable person who said his company could have built that site for one million and a lot better and more user friendly
I seriously doubt there are any medical doctors - black, white, red, blue, yellow, chartreuse — who voted for Obama.
I’m now in Kentucky, and for my first three years my doctor was from the Philippines. Because there are so few Asians in this state, she will have to find another line of work or move away, if this is enforced.
Yes, but probably by A. political ideology
they won’t care what your education or religion
when they throw you in a cell.
C'mon. This is the only good thing I've heard. I'm a US citizen and Caucasian. Does this mean I don't get doctors who got their degrees because of minority favoritism? Does this mean the next time I'm I speak to a doctor, it'll involve master of the English language from both of us? Will it mean no more medications that shouldn't be mixed, since MY doctors will read English? Will my care improve because Caucasian US citizens who got into medical school actually had to be qualified?
It sounds fair. Those members of minorities who've benefitted from quotas should get doctors who got to medical school because of quotas. Hispanics who babble that excuse for a language should get medical professionals who babble in the same tongue.
I think I like this, a lot. <^..^>
Always keep in mind.....it CAN get worse.
This reminded me of something I always thought was odd.
I used to work with an old man who just plain didn’t like Blacks. He was also a very sharp guy.
One day a guy was in from another office and he had a tooth ache. The old man sent him to his dentist who it turned out was Black.
It will get much worse.
The Road to Serfdom
Where am I going to find a Jewish Hispanic doc for my daughter?
Oh, I do hope if Obama needs medical care, and he is rushed to the hospital, that no one treats him unless the doc is half white, half black, and red all over.
