A letter to all our Senators and Congressmen:

As a physician and as your constituent, I urge you to vote to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

While I support the need for health care reform, I strongly oppose this particular bill because it shifts even more control over medical decisions to the federal government (the cause for the huge costs to begin with) and ultimately will further harm the quality of our nation’s health care and decrease timely access to all forms of modern care.

The cost of our health care has been driven up by government control, and as it now stands over 50 cents of every health care dollar is paid by the government.  More government control will add more to the cost and insure even more shortages (that means more rationing and decreased quality). If you don’t believe me, then look at the history of health care in the Soviet Union or the system currently used in Great Britain. This type of ponzi scheme has been tried before!

The following quote should be committed to memory: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,”(Santayana’s Law of Repetitive Consequences).

Let me do my job of taking care of my patients and you do your job of following the Constitution.

This letter may be a little too abrasive perhaps, but we are talking about a fundamental change from freedom to slavery, and that is more than a little abrasive!
