A Doctor Distorts Facts for the Public Option Cause

• Economic Policy Journal
 Be careful of data coming out of Doctors for America. It appears to bethe reincarnated George Soros front group Doctors for Obama.

This supposed grassroots (according to their web 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 was invited 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 myself a 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 the MSNBC clip, given what she writes here, she just outright lied at the end of her MSNBC appearance.

 You idiots are despicable and so dangerous in your campaign of hatred and ignorance. 

Lori, I'll repeat what I said in a prior post:  I can only hope that you or someone very close to you like one of your children, husband, sibling or a parent comes down wioth cancer and is denied by the insurance company.  Lori, that will be what the doctor ordered to snap you out of the stupid hatemongering state your brain since to be baking in.
