Obamacare - #3754 - VIDEO: Doctors Strike Back at Obamacare - Rush Limbaugh (2) House Votes to Abolish Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) - Hot Air

DON'T MISS THIS VIDEO, YOU MAY WANT TO PASS THIS ON, VERY WELL DONE......

CALLER: Well, I'm a physician, and my whole life has been focused on the doctor-patient relationship, and we are under siege by the government takeover of medicine. So, after being betrayed by the AMA, physicians are coming together and we have spoken out, and we have come out with a response to the infamous granny ad from last year. And I hope you will please see it, particularly the four-minute video. RUSH: I have. Is that your ad? I've seen it. CALLER: Yes! That's it. And I'm in it in the end, not (garbled). RUSH: These people have done an ad with Obama pushing granny off the cliff as opposed to Paul Ryan. CALLER: Yes. Well, because we had to give him credit for his signature legislation. And we used his own words. Our patient is absolutely in context with the town hall where he tells us that government will let us know what they deem the patient should have as treatment. And then the thing that's in the four-minute video is that we catch granny at the end, as the doctors, and we educate our patients about what is actually in the law, which I have read.  RUSH: So in your ad, granny doesn't die like in the Democrat ad?  CALLER: Oh, absolutely not. We save granny and say, "Don't worry, grandma. We will take care of you."  Read more.......  American Doctors For Truth web site ...........

Ron Johnson explained in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed:  According to the CBO, 154 million Americans are covered under employer-sponsored plans. What would be the cost to taxpayers if 50% of those individuals lost their coverage and became eligible for subsidies? The answer is difficult to calculate, but CBO’s answer is basically: Don’t worry, revenues will increase automatically to cover those costs (for example, employees’ taxable incomes will increase when they lose employer-provided coverage).  Read more..........
