Doctors, Nurses and Oher Medical Professionals Had Rally in Washington D.C. Sept.10th

September 10, 2009, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals came to Washington, D.C. from across the country to show their opposition to Obamacare.

Dr. Shannon Norris, a radiologist from Atlanta, holds a People’s Cube poster describing Obamacare as offering “the efficiency of the Postal Service, the sustainability of Social Security and all the compassion of the IRS”.

Dr. Steven Ellison, a cardiologist from Georgia, displays graphically how doctors feel about being targeted by a party and president that slander and demonize them. On the podium, speaker after speaker talked about the slurs President Obama has made about doctors performing unnecessary amputations and tonsillectomies out of greed. Not only is it untrue that doctors profit from these procedures, but the premise that they would do such harm to their patients is an insult to doctors.

Dr. Hal Scherz, a pediatric urologist from Atlanta, founded Docs for Patient Care to voice doctors’ opposition to the “big rush” for a big government solution to health care reform. The organization of doctors suggests practical proposals such as tort reform, insurance reform, and opening up insurance pools between states.

Their petition to Congress can be found at

Wild Thing's comment......

Good I am glad to see this. They need to speak up it effects them too. Socialism is not something that will only touch half of America it will touch every person in our country.

God bless all of them and I hope and pray we never have what Obama is trying to do to our country.

Hot Damn! The white coaters are demonstrating. This is just about the last group you would expect to see protesting. If the docs and nurses are upset with the plans of obamacare then you know that it is a bad healthcare idea.

Yea, go Docs!!

Tom, I agree sooo much.

I called my Doc oh gosh months ago and
asked was there a petition I could sign
as a patient. He laughed in a kind way
and said no but thank you for your
support. I told him heck we are the
victims if this goes through and you
will be too. He said yes and that he
was totally against socialized medicine.

Mark, I sure hope so, there sure was a
massive turn out to all the different
things. One thing for sure, that feeling
of fighting back sure feels good. It
helps a lot in taking some of the
frustration away. Now to pray it made a
