Quick Links: Scherz, Catron

A couple of good pieces that hit my news feeds today.

1) Hal Scherz, MD: "The War Against Doctors" (Townhall.com)

Dr. Scherz notes:
At a time when it is trendy to invoke the term “war” against various groups, such as the contrived, GOP “war against women” or “war against seniors”, it may appear trite to say that there is a war against doctors; but there is. This has been going on for decades and cannot be blamed on President Obama or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but sadly, both have facilitated an escalation of this war...
2) David Catron, "Obama's Contempt for the Voters" (American Spectator)

David Catron also pointed out something I missed from a few days ago.  Obama's latest campaign ad running in some swing states trumpets various "accomplishments" ("the resurgence of the U.S. auto industry, killing of Osama bin Laden, end of the Iraq War") but curiously does not mention ObamaCare.

This is all the more reason to keep health care on the front burner of public discussion, rather than distractions such as candidates' eating dogs or purported high school misbehaviour.
