Obamacare seeks to segregate patients, doctors by race
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/20/13 | Katie McHugh

Posted on 10/20/2013 1:54:05 PM PDT by blueyon

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under Obamacare — if you both belong to the same race.

Obamacare’s 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 Act’s language on diversity sounds innocuous, a review of the frankly separatist thinking of the law’s 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!

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.

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”.

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.

just when you thought it couldn't get any worse...

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. <^..^>

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.

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.

The author seems to equate culture with race. I have a very good Russian primary care physician, and 90% of the patients there are Russian. More Russian is spoken in the office than English. Is that racist?

Just sayin’.

To quote a school teacher in front of her classroom at some point in our future:

“They used to call them ‘doctors’.”

We’re dying breed.

Before I take down my shingle, however, I see no down side in being forced to treat only people pretty much like me.

Just when you thought it could not get any worse.....................

I just found out from my hairdresser, who has a lot of moms in and out of her chair, that what's going on at the high school and even the middle school level is that boys are convincing girls to have anal sex with them so they'll "still be virgins." This is going on at parties, in the school bathrooms, etc.

It makes my very sad that my daughter's peer group has been raised on pornography and think that a woman is just a series of holes to use any way they want. Very sad.

A large number of AMA members voted for Obama.

If only the American Medical Association would only approve doctors who spoke English. Last time I was in the emergency room in the middle of the night with my kiddo, the only doctor (ME?) there couldn’t speak English. Talk about a scary situation. He sent us home and I never did figure out what was wrong. Thankfully, the next day, kiddo got better on his own.

Unfortunately there are plenty that did. Drs tend to be either bleeding heart liberals out to save the world, or very conservative. There aren’t many moderates.

Some of them, but not all. I still belong, although I stopped donating to their PAC long ago. They still provide apolitical services that are useful for some. And some us are conservative in more than just the political sense; we are slow to change even when change is in our best interest.

“”Just when you thought it could not get any worse””

I agree but it could be reversed - whites would HAVE to go to black doctors and vice versa.

Never in our wildest dreams would we have thought anyone’s thinking could be this twisted. John Podesta?? Yep - not one to ever use common sense or logic. Getting prepared to back Hillary next year no doubt! obozo will have to get along without him - he’ll be too busy to bother with the current occupant of the WH!
