When some of us were arguing against ObamaNOcare...none of us thought the electronic web site was even going to be an issue. Who would have thought they'd get that all wrong. I could care less about the stupid web site.

I am concerned about the quality of the medical care we will receive.
In the hospital where I work out of... in a department that used to always have about 13 to 14 Family Practice Doctors...we have lost 4 to retirement in the past 5-6 years since RomneyCare started in Massachusetts. Recently 3 doctors "Jumped Ship" and have left the hospital to re- affiliate with a hospital system just over the border in New Hampshire, one more has just left to work for another nearby hospital system, and now there are only 2 possibly 3 remaining Family Practice doctors who are still at the hospital and I am one of the three.

I will likely just hold on to my hat...there is no sense in jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. We can not escape...other than to consider moving to another State that will fight ObamaNOcare tooth and nail. Which I am willing to do.

One of the drug reps who came to my office two weeks ago told me that he has about 200 offices in his territory that he visits. He told me that 4 to 5 years ago 98% of the offices were independent physicians offices. Today he says there are less than 10 doctors in his territory remaining who are independent. All the rest are salaried, work for large groups or for profit hospitals. And my office, of course, is one of the 10 out of 200 doctor's offices which is still independent.

IMO...Obama is intentionally trying to accomplish and create a system where no doctor can survive unless they are salaried and work for the government.

My options and Your options will quickly disappear.
