CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN *OUR COUNTRY*?????



Letter to Senator Bayh ... health care
-----These are some of the things that are not being made known UNLESS you
take time to read the more than 1,000 page document:

An Indianapolis doctor's letter to Sen. Bayh about the Bill (Note: Dr.
Stephen E. Frazer, MD practices as an anesthesiologist in Indianapolis ,
IN ). Here is a letter I sent to Senator Bayh. Feel free to copy it and
send it
around to all other representatives. -- Stephen Fraser


Senator Bayh,

As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the health care bill
before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the
brazenness of the government's proposed involvement in the
patient-physician
relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration
patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a health
care system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that we
need to fix our health care system, but the proposed bills currently
making their way through congress will be a disaster if passed.

I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the
following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot
possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the
country and our fellow
citizens.

employers that self-insure!!*

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to inform
patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed bills
you and your colleagues are debating.

Furthermore, if you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on the
country and destroys the doctor-patient relationship, I will do everything
in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next election.

Respectfully,

Stephen E. Fraser, MD

Dear Reader,
I urge you to use the power that you were born with (and the power that
may soon be taken away) and circulate this email to as many people as you
can reach. The Power of the People can stop this from happening to us, our
parents, our grandparents, our children, and to following generations.

"This is are country!"

Anybody checked any of these references?

Nope, but we'll go ahead and accept them as fact and then forward them to everyone we know!

I'm not totally sure, but I think this is a version of a previous RWF we saw a few months back.

gruaud said...

Yeah, we dissected a previous version of this beauty.

I would think Dr Fraser would know how to spell his own name. Note he refers to himself as both "Fraser" and "Frazer".

ferschitz said...

Ah yes: panties inna bunch & shouting "CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING IN *OUR COUNTRY*"????

Well Dr Fraser/Frazer, when you figger out how to spell yer stooped name, come back and shout at me some more.

I think that the asterisks enclosing *our country* is telling: wingers think that this is only THEIR country and clearly the rest of us can get effed. Leftie & independents are to be neither seen, nor heard.

Yeah, we've seen this junk before, include the hand-wringing, pearl-clutching, fainting couch approach.

Q. If gov't covered marriage counseling means the "gov't will insert itself into your marriage." What does a covered visit to the proctologist constitute?

Tootseye said...

Thanks for the laugh, last Anon poster!

I have a related question: if they're so worried about gov't "inserting" itself into marriages, then why is gov't (as endorsed by wingers) preventing gays from getting married?????

Anonymous said...

Tootseye I understand your confusion, maybe this brief illustration can help.

Gov't inserting itself between you and your doctor (healthcare) Not OK

Gov't inserting itself between you and your doctor (abortion) OK

Anonymous said...

This old chestnut again? I wonder if any of the page numbers even correlate to any of the bills anymore.

And yet for all the rage over abortion and gay marriage(?!), I notice they're not concerned in the least about how reform will actually keep costs down and expand coverage.

Here's the previous incarnation, by the way.

katz said...

And the govt is going to steal your wallet!

Sort of like:

Gov't sponsored corporate welfare (like no-bid contracts for Haliburton, or massive corp tax cuts): good

Gov't sponsored welfare programs for teh poors (like school breakfast & lunch programs): very, very bad

A different version of another email/twitter compilation that FactCheck has already addressed (almost word for word). Most statements were either deemed false or misleading. The last one at least specified that they were addressing H.R. 3200. This one does not specify which bill it's referring to.

ferschitz said...

Thanks almoderate: color me not surprised.

Telling lies is so deeply entrenched in the wingers mindset and personality that they do it naturally and begin to see their lies & spin as truth. Very hard to argue facts with such types and discouraging.
