IBD: The doctors speak

Investor’s Business Daily has just released a new poll of practicing physicians regarding Obamacare. The IBD poll was conducted by mail, with more than 1,000 physicians chosen randomly throughout the country taking part; responses are still arriving. The IBD article reporting the poll results unfortunately does not discuss the accuracy or reliability of the poll.
The poll indicates that two of every three practicing physicians oppose the medical overhaul plan under consideration in Washington, and hundreds of thousands would think about shutting down their practices or retiring early if it were adopted. Most think that Medicare patients would get poorer care under it. IBD notes that the results undercut the findings of a poll released Monday by National Public Radio suggesting that a “majority of physicians want public and private insurance options” and today’s front-page LA Times story on AMA support for Obamacare.
