It turns out, as the New York Times reported, that "the group that supplied many of the doctors for the Rose Garden event, Doctors for America, is a nonprofit organization that grew out of Doctors for Obama, which worked to help elect the president. But it also appears to be working closely with Organizing for America, Mr. Obama's political organization."
Now comes a new survey of 699 doctors randomly selected nationwide, commissioned by the nonpartisan Doctor Patient Medical Association, which finds MDs' attitudes toward ObamaCare to be altogether different.
A stunning 83% of physicians, answering by fax and online from April 18 to May 22, are thinking about quitting their profession, and 65% say government involvement is most to blame for current health care problems.
Some 72% say the ObamaCare mandate requiring Americans to buy insurance won't result in improved access to care, while 49% of respondents say they'll stop accepting Medicaid patients. And 74% warn they will stop taking Medicare patients, or leave Medicare completely.
