Plus 30 million more people needing care from the doctors who remain practicing medicine after Obama gets done with them.

I never once mentioned hospital in my message.
The local hospital here has a tradition.. come in with a cold, go out with a toe tag. Great place to be treated for a knifing, shooting, or overdose.
This was not an emergency. This was not life threatening. But it needed to be taken care of in less than two weeks time.

So then, the 135 mile drive was the result of your own choice, risking your daughter's life in the process.

Again, this was not life threatening. Do you read what is written?

She was in a car accident and complaining of neck problems, right? Your solution was to put her in a car and drive for several hours, because you (with all of your knowledge as a medical professional) determined that it would be better not to risk taking her to an emergency room. What did I miss?

What would have happened if she hadn't been able to get to a doctor for the two weeks?

Well, I guess I'm lost. Why did you post that you were "so much for USA medicine"? Leaving us the impression you could not get medical care for your daughter after an accident? Were you slightly misleading us perhaps?

One incident does not prove or disprove the reality of medical treatment. Doctors in regular practice don't keep open time just in case someone wants to walk in the next day. You did get to see someone and if an emergency, you could have gone to the ER. In the case of an auto accident, usually an ambulance can be called at the scene.
My wife has a heart condition. When needed, she can see a doctor in minutes. Non emergency can take days and is no big deal.

I put my application in to be on one. I'm starting with newsgroup posters. Plenty to choose there.

What you are reefing to is "End of Life Counseling," the cost of which is currently reimbursable under by Medicare

Countries that currently have nation healthcare already decide whom will get certain medical procedures, what make you believe the US government will be and different.

That has nothing to do with the fact that death panels were not mentioned in the bills. Republicans brought them up to discredit the bill.
Nonetheless, what makes you think the US is different than other countries? Insurance companies already decide what procedures they will pay for and whom their patients on a particular plan may see. And people without health coverage don't less care. And when they visit an emergency department, they don't get primary care.
Unless there is unlimited coverage, people won't get unlimited care.

Not mentioned in the bills?? How stupid jeffy is? Or believable naivety by so called dr(?) jeffy. Which is it jeffy? Your mom and pop happy you will be weaning off of their health insurance till you are a ripe old age of 26? I bet their premiums will rise because of you.

You are wrong again, my Health Insurance provider Keystone Senior Blue, allows me to visit ANY Doctor or Specialist I choose that accepts Medicare reimbursements.
If anyone requires major surgery as a result of the Emergency Room diagnoses it is provided, whether they are insured or not. That's the law, ask you doctor for the truth, WBMA.
A local "Doctors Hospital" and all of its doctor partners, that opened in 1999, has never accepted Medicare reimbursement, because they did not want to subject to the provisions of the Hill-Burton act.
You might note that some pharmacies are no longer accepting Medicare reimbursements because of the new law. Walgreens is the latest one to announce.

Only if it is an emergency. The only way a colonscopy would be provided is if the condition is such that it can't wait.

So what?
