UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES!! IBD finds that 45% of Doctors might quit if HealthFare is passed!

Investors Business Daily explains the results of their IBD/TIPP Poll which indicated that as many as 45% of all physicians in the U.S. would either quit or take early retirement if the current proposed plans are implemented.

Now I try not to be a conspiracy theorist, but think about this section of the article:

"• Two-thirds, or 65%, of doctors say they oppose the proposed government expansion plan. This contradicts the administration's claims that doctors are part of an "unprecedented coalition" supporting a medical overhaul.

It also differs with findings of a poll released Monday by National Public Radio that suggests a "majority of physicians want public and private insurance options," and clashes with media reports such as Tuesday's front-page story in the Los Angeles Times with the headline "Doctors Go For Obama's Reform."

Nowhere in the Times story does it say doctors as a whole back the overhaul. It says only that the AMA — the "association representing the nation's physicians" and what "many still regard as the country's premier lobbying force" — is "lobbying and advertising to win public support for President Obama's sweeping plan."

The AMA, in fact, represents approximately 18% of physicians and has been hit with a number of defections by members opposed to the AMA's support of Democrats' proposed health care overhaul."

It appears to me to be a BHO Administration/Ostrich Media/AMA "inadvertant conspiracy" at a minimum.

And the Los Angeles Times statement is a lie. An association representing 18% of a given population is not an "association representing the nation's physicians"!
