Pennsylvania Concerned Physicians urge their patients to oppose #obamacare

HT to Evan Madianos who encouraged others to reprint this:


“42 doctors supported printing and sending this postcard to over 20,000 undecided voters in PA. Please feel free to print and use this card in your offices and wherever doctors and patients gather. Doctors everywhere can carry out similar projects – but you have to act soon! Text from PA Concerned Physicians post card – can be copied into a letter to distribute in any physician’s offices.) Dear Voter, We are a group of unaffiliated Pennsylvania physicians who felt compelled to send you this health care warning. Most of us have avoided expressing political views to our patients in the past, but now feel we have no other option. Unfortunately, politicians have inserted themselves into our exam rooms, threatening your health and our ability to care for you. While our country unquestionably requires health care financing reform, the President’s health care law will hurt patients rather than help them. It is a bureaucratic nightmare that infringes on medical decision making and violates the patient -physician relationship: • President Obama’s law slashes $716 billion from Medicare, which will decrease seniors’ access physicians and health care services. • Nearly 20 million new patients will be dumped into substandard Medicaid programs which are already bankrupting states while federal mandates will increase the cost of everyone’s health insurance. •Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a new unaccountable, unelected board of 15 federal bureaucrats, will impose centralized Medicare budgeting restrictions that will result in de facto age-related rationing of services. • 30 million Americans will STILL be uninsured by 2019, and much more. So we are asking you to please vote for Mitt Romney for President and Tom Smith for U.S. Senate on November 6th. They are committed to repealing Obamacare and replacing it with patient -centered (not bureaucrat -centered) reforms that will lower costs, improve access, and preserve the sanctity of the patient -physician relationship. Your family’s health depends on your vote. Thank you!
