Be careful of data coming out of Doctors for America. Itappears to bethe reincarnated George Soros front group Doctors for Obama.
This supposed grassroots (according to theirweb site) organization is headed by Dr. Vivek H. Murthy a Soros Fellow, 1998-2001, of The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships For New Americans (Paul Soros is the brother of George).
Doctors for America member Dr. Katalin Roth wasinvited to introduceVice President Biden at an event in Silver Spring, Maryland.
And the Executive Director of DFA, Dr. Mandy Krauthamer, doesn't mind a little distortion of facts to promote the agenda. But she is honest about her dishonesty among fellow travelers at the DFA blog. She writes:
In response the new NEJM article about physician support for a public plan….I landed myselfa spot on MSNBC... the segment was tee’d up with the “data” that 61% of of physicians support a public option.
First, a few words about the NEJM study….I don’t see anywhere in the study that 60+% of physicians support a public option. I see 60% support a mix of public and private (but the public option that they are referring to could mean medicare and medicaid or even VA care…and not necessarily a NEW public option.) So, while I quote the study for our advantage….it doesn’t give me clear guidance about what physicians really support.
Do physicians support a public option? The truth is I don’t know.
Watch theMSNBC clip, given what she writes here, she just outright lied at the end of her MSNBC appearance.
