Physicians Urged to Declare Independence from Government, Other Third Parties
Date:3/22/2010

TUCSON, Ariz., March 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Single Party finally bought enough votes to get the Senate-passed healthcare reform through the House, but its victory celebrations may be premature, states the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). AAPS has been a voice for independence of doctors and patients since "healthcare reform" was first promoted in 1943.

Millions of Americans protested in Washington, D.C., or in their local communities, and called and wrote to Congress in record numbers. Polls showed a large majority were opposed to the bill. They will not believe that this infamous process represents "government by the people" as the President claims.

The bill will immediately create some 16,000 new jobs for IRS agents, plus thousands in new bureaucracies to plan, monitor, assess, and enforce compliance. A heavier tax burden and costly insurance mandates will eliminate many more jobs -- including in medical facilities.

"Physicians have tried to warn Congress that more government intrusion will drive as many as half of them out of practice," stated Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. "With limits on fees despite increasing costs, many can't afford to pay their bills," she said. Even more say that onerous bureaucratic rules and hassles make it difficult or impossible to practice good medicine.

When sick patients are found to be ineligible for treatment, or are stuck waiting in a long line, Drs. Slaughter, Pelosi, Obama, Sebelius, or other "reform" architects will not be available to take their calls, Orient points out.

Programs -- such as Medicare and Medicaid -- that are already unsustainable or bankrupt cannot be salvaged by piling on still more obligations.

"The only safety net is private physicians and facilities," Orient states.

Hundreds of physicians have signed the Physicians' Declaration of Independence (www.aapsonline.org/medicare/doi.htm). Every day, more physicians are discovering that they can serve their patients better, and at a reasonable fee, by cutting all third parties out of the transaction.

"Opting out was the best thing I ever did!" commented one physician responding to an AAPS survey.
