Obamacare do to you?
It makes your doctor more
likely to retire. It reduces your privacy.
By William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
Doctors Retire Over ObamaCare
Once upon a time, medicine was considered a good line of
work. Today, it's one doctors can't wait to escape --
and with ObamaCare kicking in, many of them are doing
And I don't mean a well-earned escape to the golf
course, or out to the river for a weekend of fly
No, docs are fleeing the business completely at a record
pace, hanging up their stethoscopes years earlier than
planned -- and even the doctors themselves say what
we're seeing now is only the beginning.
Six in 10 doctors say they expect their colleagues to
retire early in the coming years because of ObamaCare,
according to a new survey from the Deloitte Center for
Health Solutions, which also finds:
With all that bad news, you can see why only 31
percent of doctors give American medicine a grade of "A"
- 75 percent say the "best and brightest" won't
go into medicine at all
- 55 percent say docs will cut hours
- 40 percent say their pay was cut last year
- 48 percent say their pay will be cut this
Thank you, Mr. President!
And if you think our healthcare system is failing now,
just wait a few years. As the survey shows, we'll have
fewer doctors working shorter hours and earning less
The problem, if it's not obvious enough already, is that
ObamaCare is doing to doctors what it's doing to you.
For you, getting care is more difficult, more expensive,
and even outright unaffordable.
For your doctor, practicing medicine is more difficult
and more expensive -- so expensive, that shrinking
reimbursements and increasing insurance fees are making
it outright unaffordable for him too.
That's why nearly a third of all doctors left their
private practices and joined bigger firms or
hospital-based employers in the last two years alone.
This is a dagger in the heart of personalized medicine
-- and a victory for the disastrous one-size-fits-all
system that insurers love so much.
That's what ObamaCare is doing to your doctor. Up next:
What it's doing to you and how you can fight back.
How ObamaCare Killed Privacy
It's intrusive... it's
invasive... it's offensive.
And it's the future!
ObamaCare is giving employers the right to demand all
your most intimate medical details -- and if you don't
provide them, you'll have to pay the price.
CVS employees are already finding out the hard way.
Many of them are minimum wage retail workers struggling
for every penny. But if they don't submit to an exam and
provide CVS with blood sugar, blood pressure,
cholesterol, body mass, and body weight numbers, they'll
be fined $50 more for health coverage every month, taken
right out of their already-tiny paychecks.
Expect to see more of this. A LOT more -- because now
that employers are REQUIRED by law to provide care, and
Americans are REQUIRED by law to have it, the nature of
the workplace relationship has changed forever.
And your boss doesn't just want to know your most
intimate medical numbers. He wants to dictate to
you what those numbers should be. Just look at this
ominous line from the new CVS policy:
"Going forward, you'll be expected not just to know your
numbers -- but also to take action to manage them."
That's right, folks. If you don't meet mainstream health
targets, you could be in hot water with your boss --
never mind that most of those targets are bogus and many
are outright dangerous.
This is going to get worse unless you fight back now
against intrusive employers and clueless government

Obamacare mean for you?
By William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
ObamaCare hasn't even kicked in yet and we're already
facing our first crisis -- and no matter who you are,
this one will hurt you in a big way.
In less than two years, some 30 million currently
uninsured Americans will get their first taste of health
insurance -- the insurance you're buying them.
Aren't you generous?
I'll get to the hit your wallet's about to take in a
moment. But forget the money -- if you can -- for a
second and think about 30 million Americans all out
doctor-shopping at the same time.
Where do you think they're going to look? Hint: You
might want to book your 2014 physical now -- because the
lines at your doctor's office are going to make the ones
at Disneyland look short.
Remember, making doctors isn't like making mechanics or
bankers or fry cooks. We can't magically pump out more
in two years, three years or even five years.
It takes a full decade of medical school and training
before you can turn a doctor loose on patients. And
while ObamaCare calls for the training of some 3,000 new
doctors over the next decade, there's already a massive
shortfall right now that's about to get worse.
It's so bad that the Association of American Medical
Colleges says we'll be 62,900 doctors short in just
three years. Even without ObamaCare, that shortage would
hit 100,000 by 2025.
With ObamaCare, that "doctor deficit" will approach or
exceed 140,000 doctors by then.
Making matters worse, a full third of today's doctors
are 55 years old or older, according to the New York
Times. They're getting ready to retire -- and you
can bet even the ones who aren't thinking about quitting
will hang up their stethoscopes real fast once they see
the growing lines and shrinking reimbursements.
I wish I could tell you there's a light at the end of
this tunnel, but there isn't one. All I can say is find
a good doctor NOW and have a good relationship with him.
More importantly, make sure you're in tight with his
front office staff, so you can get an appointment when
you need one. Don't be afraid to send flowers and boxes
of candy if you have to.
But that's just ONE of the problems you'll be facing
shortly. There are others starting to kick in already --
including a kick right in your wallet.

ObamaCare isn't just going to raise your taxes, although
that's certainly part of the equation. It's not just
going to raise insurance premiums, although that's
certainly part of the equation, too.
It's going to raise the price of virtually everything.
Remember, 30 million people are getting insurance and
YOU'RE the one getting stuck with the bill -- and that
bill will come due in the form of a higher cost of
living. After all, most of the money to pay for the
"free" healthcare will come from employers -- and so
employers, in turn, will have no choice but to raise
John Schnatter, aka "Papa John" from the pizza company,
expressed this in his own clumsy way not long ago when
he said he'd have to charge between 11 cents and 15
cents extra per pizza to pay his company's share of the
Naturally, the pro-ObamaCare dimwits laughed and said
they'd gladly pay a measly 15 cents for a Papa John's
employee to get healthcare. But let's see who's laughing
when they realize it's not just 15 cents extra for
It's extra money for everything.
Sure, in some cases it'll be pennies, like 15 cents a
pie. In others, it'll be dollars. But you can bet it'll
all add up to real money real quick -- and I don't know
about you, but I don't know too many people who've
gotten pay raises lately.
I do know plenty of people who live on fixed incomes,
though -- and they can barely pay for groceries as it
is, much less healthcare for 30 million people.
You see, ObamaCare isn't just expensive. It's
unsustainably expensive -- and it will bankrupt the
But first, it'll bankrupt you.
Obamacare is a
disguised means for the government to take over
one-sixth of the entire US economy.
The government --
politicians, unelected officials, & bureaucrats
-- will determine if and when you will be
allowed to receive medical care.
Health care is the secondary
objective for the Obama administration. The
administration's primary objective is to control
Americans. The individuals in charge of this
administration and in Congress are not subject
to Obamacare's rules, procedures, regulations,
and rationing of resources.
Obamacare takes $716 billion from Medicaid. That
is money that will not be available to pay for
Medicaid recipients' health care needs.
Under Obamacare the American
health care industry will operate inefficiently
as do most government agencies. There will be
massive fraud, incompetence, and bureaucratic
problems. Americans will learn to expect
rationing of care. Soon everyone will know
someone who died because he did not receive

Pundits and legal experts will argue forever about
exactly why and what Chief Justice Roberts' intent was
when he cast the deciding vote making Obamacare
legal and intellectual discussion carries no meaning
regarding health care for most Americans. The court told
the American people that it is not -- in this case at
least -- going to protect them. Therefore all Americans
are now under legalized federal control.
American people are on their own. They must mature,
consider, and come to understand what socialized health
care and unbounded control by Congress will mean to each
Most importantly, if the
American people vote Obama out of office in November
2012, the law can be repealed
by a Republican Congress and a Republican President,
thereby negating what the Supreme Court did on June
The High Cost Of Socialism
ObamaCare isn't just any old
socialist lie -- it's an
EXPENSIVE socialist lie, and new
numbers show just how much is
about to be stolen from your
pocket to pay for it: $1.76
That's TRILLION with a T, for
the next 10 years of ObamaCare
That's almost double what the
president himself claimed in
2009, when he said it would cost
"just" $900 billion over 10
years (his remarks on the
costs of ObamaCare haven't
been erased from the White House
Want to know the worst part of
this? I'll bet you anything that
this new estimate is still on
the low side.
Here's the cold, hard truth
about Obama's plot to socialize
medicine: they can pass all the
laws they want, raise taxes on
everyone, force us all to buy
insurance, print more dollars,
and even borrow billions more
from China -- but there's still
no way in heck they'll be able
to pay for it.
And when the money runs out,
your care won't just be
rationed. It'll be cut off when
you need it most.
If you want to see how all this
works in real life, just head on
over to Jolly Olde England,
which ObamaCare backers believe
is some kind of medical utopia
of controlled costs.
Sure, they manage to keep a lid
on costs over there -- because
the powers-that-be refuse
expensive treatments for the
people who need them most,

America -- because that's what's
in your future, too, if
ObamaCare is allowed to stand.

Great Britain and
Canada have nationalized health care
systems. In each country there is
one payer for health care services:
the national government. These
systems are called single payer
In each country
the health care system has been
known by the same term since being
established. That term is socialized
In 2010, the US
Congress passed legislation that
established the federal government
as the only insurer and approver of
health care services for all
Americans. All Americans will be
covered by this federal health care
system. The federal government will
pay for only those health care costs
that it approves. The federal
government will be the only legal
In 1994, when
Clinton attempted to pass health
care legislation, it was correctly
called socialized medicine.
Americans recognized it as
socialized medicine and rejected it.
