I'd even take a note from one of your 'doctor' nephews, but I'm sure either 1) they don't exist, or 2) they really disagree with you.

When the President violates the Constitution the Republicans should take the government to court. If we lose in one court take it higher up. Question the legality of every decision the Preident makes. We will win some, and lose some, but at least he cannot completely destroy the country. Hopefully the American people will sober up by 2014, and 2016.

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?
B.S.

Any doctor who refuses to see Medicare patients is cutting out at least HALF their patient base; let's see them afford another Mercedes or multi-million dollar mansion then.

The govt simply needs to pass a law which requires doctors to accept ALL insured patients as a condition of their license to practice medicine.

You support protecting rich Democrats who overcharge the American people so whats your point?
I don't care if the doctor is a Democrat, Republican, or Independent.

They need to be required to accept any patient with medical insurance as a condition of their license to practice medicine.

My doctor no longer accepts new Medicaid or welfare patients because he has to go thru a lot of bureaucratic bullshit, paperwork, etc to get compensated if he gets compensated at all!

A lot of times doctors don't get compensated from the government and if they do its a lot less than what they deserve for the services rendered.

Doctors make less than they used to....they are heavily burdened with taxes, fees, new regulations....etc...

Oh boo fricking hoo!

The poor little rich doctors might have to choose between actually helping their patients and buying the 3rd vacation home or 4th Mercedes?

Yeah, that's gonna get a lot of sympathy.....

They can be as rich as they want, as long as they don't bitch about not being able to get even richer at taxpayer expense.

You do realize it's our taxpayer money we're talking about? I thought the "conservatives" were all for cutting spending?

Oh that's right, we can only cut spending when those cuts hurt the poor. We can NEVER cut spending that might affect the rich.

Dummy. Who are the "rich"?

Answer: The vast majority are business owners, investors, they're the biggest spenders...they help to keep the economy afloat...they employ millions upon millions thru out the country.

There's nothing that hurts the poor more than raising taxes and attacking and punishing businesses that employ them.

You people need to educate yourselves on how the economy works...its not that hard to figure out....you can start by ignoring Obama's class envy hate propaganda.

Actually there IS something that hurts the poor more than taxing the rich, and that's taxing the poor DIRECTLY and cutting their services DIRECTLY like the GOPasaurs always want to do.

How'd that philosophy work out for Romney?

Let's hope you try the same BS again in '16.
