• 83% of Doctors Might Quit Over Obamacare, Says Tea Party Poll

    Did you know that the overwhelming number of doctors in America are so upset at the idea the Affordable Care Act that they've considered going Galt rather than practice their livelihood under the red banner of Obama's socialist state?

    It's totally totally true according to a poll being disseminated by Matt Drudge and the Daily Caller

    Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving their practices over President Barack Obama’s health care reform law, according to a survey released by the Doctor Patient Medical Association.

    The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.

    Oh my God! That's insane! 83 percent? That would really give you something to think about if it were an actual "non-partisan" poll and wasn't conducted by an anti-health care reform Tea Party group

    The Doctor Patient Medical Association (DPMA) and the Patient Power Alliance (PPA) work to repeal health care reform and call themselves a "a nonpartisan association of doctors and patients dedicated to preserving free choice in medicine."The organization is a member of the National Tea Party Federation and the "American Grassroots Coalition."

    You have to admire their restraint in this "poll" they "conducted." The fact that they allowed for the possibility of a whole 17 percent of doctors who don't just full-on hate Obamacare shows that maybe the Tea Party is starting to soften their message and try to seem a little less crazy these days.
