Frazer MD read HC Bill-government will dictate & ration patient care (+several issues like access to your bank acct.)

Subject: Fw: Long but you need to read

For your information.  Because today is a very important time in this debate. 

 Everyone should read this and pay close attention.    An Indianapolis  doctor's letter to Sen. Bayh about the
 Bill (Note:  Dr. Stephen E. Frazer, MD practices as an anesthesiologist in
Indianapolis , IN
)  Here is a letter sent
 to Senator Bayh. Feel free to copy it and send it
 around to all other representatives. -- Stephen Fraser 

Senator Bayh, 
 As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the
 health care bill before Congress. I actually have read the
 bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the
 government's proposed involvement in the
 patient-physician relationship. The very idea that the
 government will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous
 and certainly not helpful in designing a health care system
 that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that
 we need to fix our health care system, but the proposed
 bills currently making their way through congress will be a
  disaster if passed.
 I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look
 at the following troubling lines that I have read in the
 bill. You cannot possibly believe that these proposals are
 in the best interests of the country and our fellow

 Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything
 possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about
 the dangers of the proposed bills you and your colleagues
 are debating.
 Furthermore, if you vote for a bill that enforces
 socialized medicine on the country and destroys the
  relationship, I will do everything in my power to
 make sure you lose your job in the next election.
 Stephen E. Fraser, MD
    I urge you to
 use the power that you were born with (and the power that
 may soon be taken away) and circulate this email to as many
 people as you can reach.  The Power of the People can
 stop this from happening to us, our parents, our grandparents, our children, and to following generations.
