A new poll out from IBD/TIPP contradicts the White House’s claim that doctors support health care nationalization. It found, to the contrary, that:
- 65% of practicing doctors oppose the plan.
- 71% disagreed with the proposition that “the government can cover 47 million more people and that it will cost less money and the quality of care will be better.”
- 45% would even consider quitting if the plan passes!
Another interesting tidbit that I didn’t know: the American Medical Association represents just 18% of physicians.
