Nearly two-thirds of U.S. doctors surveyed fear healthcare reform could worsen care for patients, by flooding their offices and hurting income, according to a Thomson Reuters survey released Tuesday.(italics, ours)
The survey of more than 2,900 doctors found many predict the legislation will force them to work harder for less money.
"When asked about the quality of healthcare in the U.S. over the next five years, 65 percent of the doctors believed it would deteriorate with only 18 percent predicting it would improve," Thomson Reuters, parent company of Reuters, said in a statement.
The U.S. House of Representatives began debate Tuesday on efforts to repeal President Barack Obama's overhaul of the U.S. healthcare industry.
Repeal of the bill is likely to fail in the Senate.
Polls show consumers are divided about the impacts of healthcare reform and the House debate has presented an opportunity for many groups to make their arguments for or against it.
Of course, allowing for health care reform to receive a proper airing in Congress would've been a swell idea before it was passed into law. But now we know we had to pass it first to then find out what was in the damn thing.
222 businesses representing 1.5 million people seeking and being granted waivers from having to comply with ObamaCare and now baby-boomer doctors already leaning towards the exit are inclined to sprint towards it exacerbating a looming doctor shortage... ObamaCare not off to such a hot start. And to think we've still got until 2014 before it's fully operational.
