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.
What could be better than a great conservative? A great conservative doctor. Believe me, we need all the medical expertise we can get on the right. The left wants to control the entire health care insurance and deliver systems in this country with virtually no medical expertise involved. How scary is that.
well at least their not lawers!!!
Hi Twila Harris:
You stated---I don't think they would in any fashion tolerate the death panels both Obamacare and Medicare have recently acquired.
My response is that---I wouldn't be so sure that they would not tolerate death panels. Not all physicians hold Conservative values. Some Medical doctors are very Liberal-leaning, Hippocratic Oath be damned. They take an oath to "First, do no harm," which is a paraphrase of the whole oath, not necessarily a direct translation of the original Greek, but there are doctors who willingly perform abortions on minors without the parental consent of the patient, and then some doctors willingly ask certain private questions that do not pertain to health but will be submitted in a data bank that will be accessible to Government entities.
I worked for the Government some time ago, and my Clearance allowed me to over-reach into personal data of private citizens. How far will doctors go if they get into office and they turn out to be "in the tank for Obama?"
Once bitten twice shy. As Conservatives we already know the drill.
There is just not enough of us to turn this Leviathan around.
All the warnings, all the cautions we gave out and still the people, the masses
voted against themselves.
I am not a Conspiracists; I rely on cold, hard, provable facts. Numbers can sometimes
lie, but eventually the truth wills out. By the way, do you think Government-employed
lackeys are reading these Conservative sites and taking names? Sometimes I wish I hadn't used my real name. But my name is already out there in cyberspace. I believe there's a list being compiled for "enemies of the Obama state."
Obamacare just keeps on giving. Doctors replacing lawyers, hearing-aid coverage congress can live with..Semper Fi
