Doctor’s ‘I will not comply’ Obamacare break-up letter getting incredible praise from her peers

A Texas ophthalmologist and co-founder of AmericanDoctors4Truth tore down the curtain on Obamacare last week, describing President Obama’s “signature” legislative achievement for the con game of forced labor that it really is.

When she wrote to the Aetna insurance company canceling her participation in its offerings, Dr. Kristin Held of San Antonio was informed she is contractually bound to care for the company’s patients for another year — as though Obamacare not only re-configured the American health care system, it repealed the 13th Amendment at the same time.

In her letter dated Jan. 30, the long-time and vocal opponent of Obamacare wrote that the “law of the land” Obamacare is made up of “politically-expedient mandates, rewards, penalties, rules and regulations with which I cannot rationally or morally treat my patients and run a practice, much less interpret, implement or comply.”

In the letter, Held describes a strange form of care in which a doctor’s services are sold without the doctor’s knowledge or consent.

“So here we are,” Held wrote, “you are getting new business offering health insurance plans featuring my services without my consent under terms which are unacceptable to me …

“It saddens me to think of the decreased access to care from actual physicians and the shockingly increased costs Aetna patients will now experience because of your choice to collude with big government rather than collaborate with patients and physicians.”

The full text of the letter is available here.

Here’s Held’s original Twitter posting:

Now, with some compliments to Twitchy.com, check out some of the reactions from fellow health professionals ….

 

And from the public ….  


And Aetna’s reaction? Held posted her letter again, with the information that Aetna had informed her she is “contractually bound” to serve its patients for another year.

Obamacare opponents, and Held’s supporters, don’t buy it.

And if a doctor can be forced against her will to treat patients under conditions she finds unacceptable, what quality of care is likely to result?

Of course, the Dems and their trial lawyer financiers will have their own answer to that: Doctors better do as they’re told, or else.

That’s Obamacare medicine taken to its logical, socialized extreme: making good on Obama’s promise that you can the health care you prefer – by making doctors provide it.

    Good for the good Doctor. She really doesn’t have to worry about her contract. It will never hold up in court. Even with a bought justice system.

    GOD Bless you Doc! Someone with the guts to speak the truth. You better look out, Mein Fuhrer Obama will unleash his Gestapo IRS and NSA on you now….

    Ill winds blow for the USA. An illness that can only be cured by unleashing the battle.

    It should really be called Obamadoesntgiveacrap!
    Think about it. It is exorbitantly expensive, inefficient and corrupt. Today it was “discovered” that parts of the software were written by computer programmers who work for Belarus ,a country with close ties to the Soviet Union and an enemy of the US. It is great to know everyones personal information is now in the hands of the Russians. Is this what the Black Muslim meant when he told Putin, he would be more flexible if he was re-elected!
    Patients are paying more for less services and higher deductibles Doctors or should I now say healthcare providers are being paid less money while much of the money is being spent on kick backs, the IRS and Unions! What a total Abortion!

    Perhaps if Americans had embraced universal health care instead of watering it down and choosing to make Obama’s plans fit into the mode of American Capitalism (i.e. drug manufacturers, ins. co’s., etc. get to charge what they want with the govt’s help and no real competition) the cost of healthcare in America wouldn’t be as exhorbitant.

    Canada, Austrailia, most of Europe including the United Kingdom, many places in Asia — have universal healthcare that manages to give its citizens basic affordable care. Why can’t America? And before you post stories about how none of those systems work — explain to me how the American worked before Obamacare — please. Then explain to me why hospitals get to overcharge on the simplest things like — changing bandages in one instance I know of $85 per leg for a leg wrap — not an open wound on either leg (then they charged 3 xs in a 24 hour period although they actually came in and switched bandages from one leg to the other twice).

    So…. tell me doctors for Truth — when will you tell it. And when will you decide that being a doctor doesn’t entitle you to become a millionaire on the backs of your patients.

    What Ovomit truly meant was; “If you like your present illness, you can keep it.”
