    Very unprofessional to talk about politics and try to frighten patients to not vote a certain way. I would never see that doctor again.

    For those of you ill-informed. These changes have been happening for about a decade.

    IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    Follow the money. Follow the money. Follow the money --->>>>> insurance companies/hospital administration.

    This has very little to do with Obama or Romney care. Obama is cutting Medicare reimbursement by 15% across the board next year (as admitted by Obama last night in the debates.) This is in addition to decreased reimbursements for early readmissions.

    This will affect EVERYONE in health care, MD's, NP,s, RN's, etc. I am so tired of hearing politicians say that Medicare is so much more efficient than insurance plans when Medicare doesn't pay nearly as well and Medicare gets cut every year - next year will be the worst for reimbursement in history. Many MD's and NP's are saying the same thing about retiring/leaving, they just didn't get their 5.5 minutes on the news.

    When my father decided to close his practice he sent out notices to all of his patients a year in advance. That notice gave them time to shop for a new family physician and request copies of their records be sent to the new office. I think it's more professional to warn patients that a practice may close than to remain silent and let them find out when the doors are locked.

    I'm curious as to what some of you think about the email this CEO sent to his employees.

    1. He wouldn't have to fire me. After that pig wrote that drivel, I'd quit right quick.
    2. I doubt HE'S gonna take a pay cut, now is he? That doesn't seem to be in very many CEOs' vocabularies when it refers to them. Most of THEM are the biggest drain on their companies, not their workers.
    3. This just smells wrong to me. I know not everything is actionable, but I feel like it's an employer offering financial compensation for voting (the way he wants them to). (Even though he says he can't tell them who to vote for.) They got onto Michael Moore for giving out pairs of underwear to people who voted; seems like someone might get their panties in a twist over this email too.
    4. "Over the past four years I have had to stop building my dream house, cut back on all of my expenses, and take my kids out of private schools simply to keep this company strong and to keep you employed." Ohhh, how we sufferrr!!!! I feel so bad for him! But don't worry folks, he's doing better now! "The elevators are going in and they're preparing to put in the marble." Phew! So glad! I know *I* was worried about him!
    5. "Instead of raising my taxes and depositing that money into the Washington black-hole, let me spend it on growing the company, hire more employees, and generate substantial economic growth." Riiiiight, you mean like you did during eight years of a Republican administration?
    6. Thanks for putting this out there, so I know not to spend any money with this company if I can help it. (Sorry employees. That's what happens when your boss is a gigantic jerk.)

    His garage used to serve as his office, and now he employs over 7000 people. So yes, I would say he does know how to and has a track record growing the company, hiring more employees, and generating economic growth.

    In light of the above, you think he should have to take a pay cut so that the government can take more of what he earned and give it to others?

    CEO's are drains on their companies? This guy can't be, can he? Again, he started working in his garage and now employes 7000 people. How is he a drain? How are other CEO's a "drain"? My guess is that like most of the "CEO's are evil" types you really don't have any idea of how much the average CEO makes and the relationship of his/her compensation to numbers of employees and $$$ in profit. The truth is, in most cases a CEO's salary is minute compared to the profits the company makes, and if your CEO's salary was cut to $1 and what he used to make was split up among all the employees, you probably wouldn't notice.


    Just for fun, here is another CEO saying how bad Obama is for business and the economy. And, please remember healthcare is a business. This one happens to be a well-known Democrat supporter in the past. Wynn says he’s afraid to build in Las Vegas because of Obama - VEGAS INC

    My personal doctor talks about this to all his patients. He makes it very clear he cannot stay in business at the rate it's going. He is very anti-Obama and uses a portion of every office visit for this purpose.

    *** I would be angry if a physician I was paying to provide care for me or my family used the time I paid for like that. I would fire him and get a different doctor who was more respectful of his patients.

    Where can I get unbiased info on this that doesn't go over my head? I have no idea what to think of Obamacare. I like that I can stay on my parent's insurance until I am 26 and that's about all I know and like.
