Not Everybody Likes Obama … Obamamessiah Booed by Doctors at AMA Event


Barack Obama better get used to the boos when it comes to nationalized healthcare. A healthcare system run by the government that would make the HMO’s of the early 90’s look like patient/physician friendly entities. Can you imagine a political bureaucrat coming between you and a healthcare decision? The government is going to lecture us on wasteful spending? That’s laughable.

Barack Obama isn’t used to hearing boos.

For all the young president’s popularity, the response he got Monday from doctors at an American Medical Association meeting was a sign his road is only going to get rockier as he tries to sell his plan to overhaul the nation’s health care system.

The boos erupted when Obama told the doctors in Chicago he wouldn’t try to help them win their top legislative priority—limits on jury damages in medical malpractice cases.

      And indeed there’s good reason to boo. Let’s just talk about the parts of the health care plan that O’s released so far (and believe me, they are purposely being deceitful – here’s what good ole Charlie Rangel said about being truthful

      “We have a problem in not wanting to attract enough negative attention to the bill in terms of the pay-fors,” he said. “Let them get a good feel for the coverage.”

      ). But I digress: The CBO revealed that while O’s plan would insure 39 million of the currently uninsured (remember Rasmussen says 22% of those uninsured are illegals) – it will leave 36 million uninsured and remove 23 million of those currently insured on to the uninsured roll!

      That’s right. We will take working Paul and make him pay for illegal Jose and non-working Peter to be insured while removing working Paul from his current health care insurance program! What a deal!

      oh and the magic above will only cost you the taxpayers a mere $1 trillion (Obama’s estimate so you can at least double that and cut the health care you expect in half).

      they were booing him because he wouldn’t try to help them win their top legislative priority—limits on jury damages in medical malpractice cases.

      I would like to make an honest comparison between the US and Dutch system, am curious how much it costs us as consumers.

      so katablog, how much does it cost you? (estimation)

      Here illegals are not insured, its not possible. They wont turn you down at the hospitals (I hope that is the case in the States too)

    4. Dolf on June 16th, 2009 3:14 pm

      when an illegal arives who needs help

    5. SUPER DAVE on June 16th, 2009 3:55 pm

      the problem is dolf that we (real US citizens) will be funding the (illegal) aliens with our hard work and hard earned money while the illegals benefit from not working and leeching from us.
      when an illegal arrives, he or she needs to be sent back to where they came from. not even allowed to spend the night.

    6. Dolf on June 17th, 2009 1:40 am

      no Dave you will not.

      we can all agree that Holland is a tad more social then the US (on this issue) and have better laws for uni healthcare.

      However illegal immigrants are not insured, you need to be registered to be insured, illegal immigrants (prefer that therm instead of aliens) are not or they would not be illegal

      look the US gets the poor ppl from South America, we in Europe get them from Africa

      and while their are azzez and criminals amungst them, the biggest part are just humans trying to improve their live (how misguided their believe how it works here might be)

    7. Stevie on June 17th, 2009 1:59 am

      Amnesty for all illegals!If Obama can give amnesty to all the illegals then they will al become citizens and most of them will vote Democrat.

    8. Rusty Bridges on June 17th, 2009 8:56 am

      See, wouldn’t you want to limit the amount of money that can be awarded in a law suit so you can keep malpractce insurance costs down and therefore keep healthcare costs down? Does that make sense to anybody?

      They where booing him because his plan is not to help the system but to drain the money from it. The same as the rest of his plan for America. Rob from the productive to give to the lazy.

      They are also making it easier to sue corporations, that is why he needs a latino woman with her richness in experience in the sway of the law.

      This whole charade is so obvious.

      Oh no!!! I hope the government doesn’t keep the doctors and pharmasutical companies from making millions while hard working families struggle to pay their medical bills. That would be SO UNFAIR! So what if the elderly have to make a choice between buying food for the month and expensive prescriptions. They can eat their meds and drink lots of water. That should keep them alive long enough for some profit to be made and then the next old man can hunt for change in his couch to find enough money to pay for HIS prescriptions. I think the doctors and drug companies should be rich beyond their wildest dreams while the rest of us do without. That’s my hope anyway. Oh I so hope Obama fails so the republicans can continue to rape this country. I especially like being F***ED without being kissed!

      Dolf: My husband and I pay about $450 every 3 months for supplementary insurance to cover what the Government reneged on and we go without dental insurance. You see my husband served his country for 26 years with the promise that he and his family would receive free medical and dental care (as a “benefit”) for life. But President Clinton decided to nix all that after my husband have finished his service to his country.

      And yes, the New O plan will provide “free” medical care to all illegals who currently are 22% of the uninsured. In return for covering 39 million people currently uninsured, O will take away the insurance of 23 million who ARE currently insured (bet da_wench is pleased about that). You see some people only care about what happens to them; they want “free” health care because they think things in life should be free.

      They don’t care that by getting what they want that others will get less health care or no health care. They don’t care that those working are providing all these “benefits” for those who are too lazy to work. It’s a gimme mine nation.

      Pharmaceutical companies (that da_wench likes to rail on) have to charge so much for medications because those paying for medications are paying for those getting free and subsidized medications.

      When the Govt steps in and says a pharmaceutical company can only charge medicare $25 for a $50 drug, all the rest of the insured and uninsured get to pay $70 for their drugs to make up for the freebies to the government.

      In addition the number of lawsuits (some much deserved, many not) that are cooked up to go after what people perceive as the “rich” drug companies. Apparently juries don’t realize that it’s not the drug company paying the awards, but the future consumers purchasing the drugs.

      People hail the law suits against school boards, cities, police, etc. not realizing again who is the ultimate payer of these claims – US Taxpayers.

      I suppose the beginning should start with firing any and every government official found to be involved in what ultimately ends up being an award by a jury to citizens.

      Congress likes to blast the big bonuses paid to bank and insurance officials, but have you seen Congress taking a pay cut because they failed to 1)curb the financial disaster – Remember, there’s a bank over cite community that was out to lunch when all this happened.
      2) curb spending and therefore have run up giant deficits
      3) stop incredible fraud amongst themselves such as Murtha, Dodd, William Jefferson, and the list goes on and on.

      It’s surprising to most sleepy folks that Incentive, Freedom,
      Profit Motive, Competition, Research, Advertising, Volume
      Distribution, Recovery of Research Costs, Education, are some
      of the major qualities that make America and other relatively
      Free Nations the primary sources of life saving and life preserving pharmaceuticals, medical services, and facilities. Yes, it is felt
      the AMA does influence the number of physicians somewhat, but,
      it is not only Canada’s desperate medical problems that show up
      here seeking help and cures ‘unauthorized’ in their home countries.

    12. Dolf on June 17th, 2009 4:12 pm

      k, katablog, I admit I am a bit drunk, so i’ll answer bit later (it deserves a sober answer)

      1 thing…thought you were a guy (doesn’t matter to me)

    13. HasItBeen4YearsYet? on June 17th, 2009 6:43 pm

      Obama is a Fascist,…
      …what more can be said, except that so many clueless Americans who don’t know how to think, can’t put simple facts together and come out with a sensible answer.

      Bottom line, “Liberals” aren’t really liberal, but are “Leftists,” and that ain’t good…

      katablog, you make some excellent points!

    14. Rusty Bridges on June 18th, 2009 8:28 am

      #12, Why did you think “Kat” was a man? You don’t have smart women in your country?

      click on her name that is highlighted in blue.

    15. SUPER DAVE on June 18th, 2009 9:38 am

      DOLF: i just received a quote on major dental surgery @ $30,000.00. and obama would give this to your illegals for free !
      one of my customers ( a tax paying American citizen) wife’s baby to be born cost him $5,000.00 out of pocket and the illegal who worked beside him with a fake id and green card only paid $500.00 out of pocket at the same hospital. go figure ! this is obama’s idea of being a president. screw the real citizens of this country and flood it with foriegners like him.

    16. Scott on June 18th, 2009 11:20 am

      dolf = you are an idiot. UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE DOES NOT WORK PERIOD!


      There is no freedom or choice in universal health care so spare us your usual Europe bullshit!

      Everybody – dolf is a dunce or dolt…..he has no idea what he speaks of….his mommy must have let the computer for a hour today!

    17. Scott on June 18th, 2009 11:25 am

      dawench – you are as dumb as the day is long….the elderly are going to be the ones hurt in Obama’s plan but what would you know since you didn’t care to read it. Stop stealing your loserish comments from MSNBC and the talking dolts over there…LOL….

      Instead some bureaucrat is going to decide who lives or dies and that especially affects the elderly. It’s called RATIONING and it happens in EVERY socialially run health care system…PERIOD. There is a reason Canadiens come to America in droves for procedures their government will NOT pay for.

      I truly hope you don’t have any elderly people in your life that gets sick and ultimately denied healthcare and then die because the government wanted to save money to give the same treatment to Julio who jumped the fence 10 days ago!

      Here is case to consider…in the town near where I live, there are a big number of illegals. The hospital and doctors overrun with babies being born and no insurance. So, all the OB docs left the area. Now everyone illegal or not must come to another town to have their baby delivered. Everyone is punished, the docs weren’t making money, and every person with insurance must make the trip to another town to have a baby as well.

    20. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 1:28 am

      scott, stop shouting at your screen and go see a doctor.

      the US system, most expensive and not the most effective…
      SM: Sorry Dolf, I have been a consultant in the healthcare field for years. Any inefficiencies and problems with the US healthcare system will never be fixed by the govt. They will be made worse.

      Medicare & Medicaid fraud is through the roof.

      The US already had a taste of what managed care looked like in the early 90′s when HMO’s came on the seen and dictated care. I cannot even imagine the govt doing the same.

      Look to the VA’s as to what the future on govt care looks like. You all do realize that Medicare does not cover many commonly covered procedures, right?

      Folks, look at your auto insurance and compare … oil changes are not covered are they.

      We are supposed to trust the govt for our health care when it took them 5 days to get water to the Super Dome during Hurricane Katrina. I would not trust any political party with healthcare.

    21. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 1:35 am

      but scott, I know”how that “brain” of yours works

      don’t understand, don’t like..don’t listen, just insult.

      things do not solve itself by shouting and insulting
