Obama Shakes Down Doctors

The Obama administration is initiating a secret government operation investigating doctors in private practice, according to the New York Times in its Sunday, June 26 edition.

The article reports that, according to government documents obtained from Obama administration officials, government agents posing as patients “will call medical practices and ask if doctors are accepting new patients and, if so, how long the wait would be. The government is eager to know whether doctors give different answers to callers depending on whether they have public insurance, like Medicaid, or private insurance, like Blue Cross and Blue Shield.”

The government’s subversive and deceptive campaign targeting America’s doctors is another part of the incremental assault on the rights of doctors, who are becoming enslaved by ObamaCare. I think this particular attack is designed to intimidate doctors into submission to ObamaCare, which effectively forbids doctors from autonomously practicing medicine, and will eventually prohibit doctors from quitting state-sponsored medicine. It’s a first strike against any doctor who dares to defy the government.
