American doctors prefer the public option

Lost in all the gibber-jabber about a public healthcare option vs. this country going to a socialist hell at the hands of a terrorist-sympathizing black president, is the opinion of doctors for fixing a broken system. 

Whether they lived in southern regions of the United States or traditionally liberal parts of the country,” Dr. Salomeh Keyhani told NPR.  She and Dr. Alex Federman, both internists and researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, conducted a random survey, by mail and by phone, of 2,130 doctors from June to early September.

“We found that physicians, regardless — whether they were salaried or they were practice owners, regardless of whether they were specialists or primary care providers, regardless of where they lived — the support for the public option was broad and widespread,” she added.

Most doctors — 63 percent — say they favor giving patients a choice that would include both public and private insurance. That’s the position of President Obama and of many congressional Democrats. In addition, another 10 percent of doctors say they favor a public option only; they’d like to see a single-payer health care system. Together, the two groups add up to 73 percent.

Fucking socialist doctors trying to ruin this country.  Where do they get the nerve?
