When puzzled about plumbing, you would listen closely to the opinions of a plumber. When you are confused about cars, it would be best to consult a mechanic. Why should healthcare be different?
When it comes to Obamacare, there are a lot of confused people out there, and a ludicrous amount of work and reading to do before that changes (See our earlier post about Obama's 80-Million-Hour Problem). So America has to turn elsewhere for an informed opinion on how this...thing will affect our lives.
Today, there is an article in Style detailing the opinions of Richmond doctors on Obamacare. The Richmond Academy of Medicine hosted a dinner with U.Va.'s Larry Sabato where a mock election was held, as well as a mock referendum on Obama's Affordable Care Act.
The numbers came back overwhelmingly against the law; and, while the poll was informal, gave an interesting insight into the opinions held by the Commonwealth's caregivers.
The numbers came back showing a tidy Romney victory in November, Cantor and Longo winning in the House, and George Allen for Senate. While the sample size is small and the poll unofficial, it begets optimism to know that some of Virginia's most educated and well-informed professionals fall against this attempted "solution", and that our caregivers support a common-sense fix to the issues that face us today.
