To all of you idiots talking about the evil, rich doctors, remember this: when those doctors' medicare reimbursements get cut, a lot of them will simply stop seeing medicare patients. How will that help anything?

They took an oath to get medical lic. They cant turn away anyone.

If they turn people away PULL THERE LIC. AND MAKE IT SO THEY CANT PRACTICE MEDICINE.

Last nights Speech proved it will be hard for the adults to get anything done as long as we only have Obama in the White House.
To the amazement of loving parents and grand parents around the Nation, Obama didn't even MENTION the 8% unemployment or the massive SPENDING DEFICITS. The next four years will be devastating.

Of course they can turn patients away; it happens every day. You might want to take a moment and ACTUALLY READ the Hippocratic oath before pecking out drivel from your keyboard.

You are about as dumb as your two nephews, then. Emergency rooms cannot turn away patients, but private practice physicians can--and do--refuse to take patients all the time, including medicare patients.

You're the one who claimed the oath prohibited doctors from refusing to take patients or they'd lose their licenses. You were wrong; your nephews are wrong. You're welcome for the education you just got.

O.k., dolt. Show me one--even just one--statute, regulation, or anything that says doctors can't refuse service to whomever they choose not to serve, or they'll lose their license.

Go on... just one.

You can't provide even one source to prove your point? That clearly proves that I am right. I certainly can't provide one that proves the negative, idiot.

You are proving you are a liar, or you'd provide a source, just one, any one. I'd settle for Huff-Po, Media Matters, anything from anywhere.
