Two Doctors In The Washington Times

The October 27, 2010 Washington Times carried two good health care OpEds by physicians.

Dr. Daniel Johnson, Jr. wrote, "Patient beware of accountable care organization".

Johnson warns how ACO's being promoted with government help will set physician practice standards and payment incentives that will likely lead first to capitation -- then a single-payer system.

Dr. Mark Neerhof of Docs4PatientCare wrote, "Repeal president's ploy".

Neerhof shows how the insurance regulations will drive private insurers out of business and herd Americans into single-payer, government-run health care.

ObamaCare thus constitutes a two-pronged attack on the freedoms of American patients and physicians.

If Americans don't like this prospect, they should let their elected officials know next Tuesday!
