Republican doctors running for Congress amid O-Care fiasco

Eleven Republican doctors are running for the Senate, hoping that voters will see their medical expertise as an asset amid the administration’s botched rollout of ObamaCare. 

“Doctors are in a very unique position to look at the financing of healthcare,” Rep. Paul Broun, a family physician running for the GOP nomination for Georgia’s open Senate seat, told The Hill.

“We go into medicine for one reason, and one reason only: Because we care about people, we want the people who we serve to have a productive, happy, healthy life,” he added. “That’s the kind of policymaker we should have in place in dealing with healthcare policy.”

Doctors running in Senate races from North Carolina to Oregon are all pitching voters on their experience in the medical field.

After dealing with too many doctors this year. I would never vote for a doctor to be in politics.

James sounds like another liberal plant from the Obama Bin-Lyin camp. 

Hay James, these Doc's just might get together and declare oshitler nuts and put him away in the nut house, instead of the whitehouse.

I've dealt with some very GOOD Doctors who would be excellent in making policies that would help We the People.    HOWEVER .. I've met two very self serving Drs.. and I'll use that title with great reserve.   Those two shouldn't be Doctors much less politicians.    So this year we must look at ALL ASPECTS of EVERYONE who is running for election and especially for RE ELECTION .. THEN turn our focus on RECALLING the ones who are totally useless and I can start a list on those.  

There's no " fix" for OBAMACARE. IT has no feature in it to actually do what it was sold to do. It is simply a "redistributionist" scheme, as Donald Berwick said. Put another way, it is a method to amass power for politicians, and repress the people, by hoodwink.
Wake up, world, or we will have no say in what Washington or the U.N, does.

Oren:  You are a raging liberal aren't you?  You sound like a liberal plant from the Obama Bin-Lyin camp.  Running scared are you?

RIGHT ON DOCTORS!! If enough of them get elected then maybe they can put an end to this COMMUNIST Obamacare once and forever!

we need someone who is not a Harvard graduate,,,,looking at what those people believe that's not even an education anymore its an indoctrination,,,we need someone in the white house who has no college degree,,,we need someone that kn ows how to run a business,,,we need someone that intends to straighten these crooked politicians up,,,and we don't need Hilary Clinton,,,thats just an extension of Obama,,,,we desperately need to get rid of FEMa,,,,and Homeland security,,,we need to get rid of the department of transportation and the dept of education and give those things back to the states,,,there should be no such thing as a czar,,,and all czars should be deported immediately,,,,we need to get corporations out of government,,,and lobbyist out of the government,,,,and then we need to enforce drug laws upon our elected officials just like we have to put up with,,,we need to expose all the fraud and the lies,,,and people need to be tried for these crimes they are committing,,,its time to take it back,,,,and if we don't then it will be us who will be eliminated,,,,,

AMEN. So short-sighted are those in DC that they don't seem to KNOW that if you kill off the worker bees, there is no one to raise the food, cook the meals, fix the limos, bury the dead.

Uh, duh!
Oren,
I take your remark as one who has little knowledge about the sacrifices made by those who study and ultimately deliver healthcare under the onerous regulatory morass known as our healthcare system, even before Obamacare. There WAS a time in American history when lawyers COULD NOT hold office. Now we are pushed around like checkers on a board so lawyers make it nearly impossible for those who have given their lives to help others are barred from holding office. I am less frightened of Doctors holding office than lawyers. Obama disbarred, case in point.
Allow yourself the luxury of such a thought; acquaint yourself to the most oppressive part of healthcare fix was not even allowed to be addressed and that is tort reform. The plea for free market principles was totally ignored. Remember private practice providers are small businesses and small business is THE life-blood of American exceptionalism!
Oren,
I retired because after 45 years I was so constrained by the mumbo jumbo inflicted on me by this regulatory state, I could hardly do my job as a provider. Obviously, we are going to have a very difficult time trying to find health care, but we knew all along that this is Obama's full intent. He is the INSTRUMENT OF THE DESTRUCTIVE FORCE OF THE U.N. & ALL THE ALPHABET SOUP ORGANIZATIONS WANTING GLOBAL TYRANNY. I JUST HOPE A FEW OF US HAVE SAVED ENOUGH HISTORY THAT OUR PROGENY HAVE SOME SENSE OF THE GREATNESS THAT WAS AMERICA. IT IS NOW GONE.

We have to get a law passed where Congress and Obama must use Obamacare. If it's good enough for us, it should be good enough for them. As far as that goes, any law that Congress passes should also apply to them. They are not any different than us, except as being a lot dumber.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
