The Bigoted, Post Racial President Wants to Destroy Medical Profession
For patients, Obamacare will mean an even greater brain drain in the medical profession, while quotas and cronyism further devalue the standards of the profession. With Obamacare most doctors in this country will be nothing more than legalized drug pushers, not healers. That is until the federal government goes after and destroys the drug companies. Allan Favish at American Thinker has this report on the demise of the medical profession:
All 1,018 pages of the Democrats' health care bill can be inspected here. The bill includes racial preferences. Under the Democrats' health care bill, if a medical school wants to increase its chances of receiving many different kinds of grants and contracts from the federal government, it should have a demonstrated record of training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups. This is because the Democrats' health care bill requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to give preference to the entities that have demonstrated such a record in the awarding of these contracts to medical schools and other institutions.However, the serfs are getting restless. Below is an extremely entertaining video of useless RINO Michael Castle (R-DE) getting what for from his constituents in a real town hall meeting. Given this debacle it's easy to see why the Democrats prefer carefully orchestrated dog and pony shows. First, he gets an earful for his absurd lie about actually reading the Cap-and-Trade bill before he voted for it. Then he is taken to task for his support of Obamacare. Finally, he is ridiculed and jeered for drinking the global warming Kool-aid.
The bill does not state what would qualify as a "demonstrated record", so we can expect medical schools and the other entities to do whatever they think they can get away with to train as many "individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups" as they think they might need to have a better "demonstrated record" in this regard then other entities competing for the grants and contracts. The Democrats' health care bill creates a very significant financial incentive for medical schools and other entities to lower admission standards for "individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups" if that is what it takes to have the winning "demonstrated record".
Watch the whole thing, then call your congresscritter and give them the same business. For starters, Nancy Pelosi has said that a majority of Americans support Obamacare. You can call her as Speaker of the House and let her know how wrong she is at: 202-225-0100. Her district office is: 415-556-4862.
