Now you Can see why Obama wanted this Bill run thru before anyone
could have read it. The doctor did the work for us. Get all over
these congressmen, I don’t care whose district they are in……
This is a letter written by Dr. Stephen Fraser to Senator Bayh.
If you would like to send it on to your Congressman, he says to feel
free to copy it and send it around to our friends and to senators
July 23, 2009
As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the healthcare
bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked
by the brazenness of the government’s proposed involvement in the
patient physician relationship. The very idea that the government
will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not
helpful in designing a healthcare system that works for all. Every
physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our healthcare
system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through
congress will be a disaster if passed.
I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the
following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot
possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of
the country and our fellow citizens.

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible
to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the
proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.
Furthermore, If you vote for a bill that enforces socialized
medicine on the country and destroys the doctor/patient
relationship, I will do everything in my power to make sure you lose
your job in the next election.
