Dr. Kevin Pezzi (Emergency Medicine): "President Obama asserts that his healthcare plan would not create 'death panels.' While there won't be any bureaucracy labeled as such, there will be countless cold, uncaring bureaucrats telling doctors how to practice medicine. They will insist that we order fewer tests and procedures, and always choose the third-rate option if it's cheaper. If a patient dies while waiting to be treated, or dies from his third-rate treatment, Obama hopes that you are dumb enough to think that the patient died from a doctor's mistake, not from a government death panel. Obama and his lawyer friends want people to believe that doctors are the ones who should be held accountable for the results of this government-mandated rationing . . . and if you don't think rationing is coming, I have a bridge I want to sell to you. The government was rationing healthcare years ago when it had a budget surplus. The government will assuredly not be any more generous now that we're in a recession and our national debt has grown by trillions of dollars."
