45% of Doctors Would Consider Quitting If Congress

Passes Health Care Overhaul

“Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.” (
Ps 83:1-2)

“Behold, he shall come up like clouds,
And his chariots like a whirlwind.
His horses are swifter than eagles.
Woe to us, for we are plundered!”
(Jer 4:13)

“O my soul, my soul!
I am pained in my very heart!
My heart makes a noise in me;
I cannot hold my peace,
Because you have heard, O my soul,
The sound of the trumpet,
The alarm of war.”
(Jer 4:19)

Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says the LORD.
‘ Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’ (
Jer 5:29)

Prayer Points:

  • Arise! Cry Out! Do not let the enemy rejoice over the demise of our nation! (see Jer 2:17-19);
  • President Obama desperately wants to construct STATISM! PRAY AGAINST his plans. May God FRUSTRATE him! (Gen 11:4-9, Ps 141:5);
  • Lord, EXPOSE all this to your CHURCH; she often seems DECEIVED by lying words (2 Ptr 2:3).



“Woe is me…Truly this is grievous,” cried Jeremiah in 10:19, referring to the “coming captivity” of his people.

Friends, if half of our doctors will quit or retire if ObamaCare is implemented, this surely is a CONCERN.

STATISM is EVIL! Government-managed “health” care is a form of statism. When atheistic secular humanists determine what’s good for us, that’s STATISM, putting the government in the place of God. IDOLATRY!

Sins like Idolatry and “shedding innocent blood” (abortion) cause a land to be “defiled and polluted” (see Jer 2:22 and 7:26).

ObamaCare, managed by people who have no respect for LIFE, is intrinsically an “abomination” (Jer 7:9-10). NO WONDER the doctors will QUIT! They want no part of it!

“‘Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says the LORD.
‘Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’”
(Jer 5:29)

45% Of Doctors Would Consider Quitting If Congress Passes Health Care Overhaul (by Terry Jones)

“Two of every three practicing physicians oppose the medical overhaul plan under consideration in Washington, and hundreds of thousands would think about shutting down their practices or retiring early if it were adopted, a new IBD/TIPP Poll has found.”

“The poll contradicts the claims of not only the White House, but also doctors’ own lobby — the powerful American Medical Association — both of which suggest the medical profession is behind the proposed overhaul.

“It also calls into question whether an overhaul is even doable; 72% of the doctors polled disagree with the administrations claim that the government can cover 47 million more people with better-quality care at lower cost.

Two-thirds, or 65%, of doctors say they oppose the proposed government expansion plan. This contradicts the administrations claims that doctors are part of an unprecedented coalition supporting a medical overhaul.

“Four of nine doctors, or 45%, said they would consider leaving their practice or taking an early retirement if Congress passes the plan the Democratic majority and White House have in mind.

360,000 doctors would consider quitting.

More than seven in 10 doctors, or 71% — the most lopsided response in the poll — answered no when asked if they believed the government can cover 47 million more people and that it will cost less money and the quality of care will be better.’”

The only way, the critics contend, is by rationing care — giving it to some and denying it to others.”

IBD/TIPPs finding that many doctors could leave the business suggests that such rationing could be more severe than even critics believe.
