ARIZONA MAYO CLINIC TO STOP TAKING MEDICARE PATIENTS

BLOOMBERG:
The Mayo Clinic, praised by President Barack Obama as a national model for efficient health care, will stop accepting Medicare patients as of tomorrow at one of its primary-care clinics in Arizona, saying the U.S. government pays too little.

...Obama in June cited the nonprofit Rochester, Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio for offering “the highest quality care at costs well below the national norm.”

Mayo’s move to drop Medicare patients may be copied by family doctors, some of whom have stopped accepting new patients from the program, said Lori Heim, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians, in a telephone interview yesterday.
SOCIALISM DOESN'T WORK AS WELL AS THE PRIVATE MARKET.

INCREASING THE GOVERNMENT'S ROLE IN HEALTHCARE IS EXACTLY THE WRONG DIRECTION.

DOCTORS HAVE A RIGHT TO CHARGE A FAIR FEE FOR THEIR HIGHLY SKILLED SERVICES.

THE SERVICE IS THEIRS TO SELL; IT BELONGS TO THEM; IT'S THEIR "PROPERTY".

THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO STEAL THEM.

A FAIR FEE IS AS MUCH AS THE TRAFFIC WILL BEAR.

THE CURRENT MEDICARE/MEDICAID SYSTEM IS BROKE, AND OBAMACARE IS WORSE.

INCREASING THE GOVERNMENT'S CONTROL OF HEALTHCARE IS BAD AND WRONG FOR YOUR HEALTH AND OUR NATION'S HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY.

WE MUSTN'T LET POLITICIANS AND BUREAUCRATS AND THE UNIONS REDESIGN AND RUN OUR HEATLCARE SYSTEM.

VOTE ACCORDINGLY.

VIA MEMEORANDUM WHO HAS MORE.

Don't expect to hear Obama or any of his Socialist/Communist party in Washington utter a word about the Mayo Clinics decision. All Obama cares about is taking control of our lives. The conceited SOB continues to soak up the sun in Hawaii at the cost of millions to the tax payer. Millions that the government doesnt have. What a loser Obama is.
