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.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
