Lost in the alternative media reporting from the unprecedented National Tea Party and March on Washington was a smaller, but significant protest that took place at the Capital on Thursday, September 10, 2009.

Doctors Against Obamacare

Like any protest critical of their left wing ideology, the main stream media, except for Fox News, totally ignored it.

Then again it was real doctors and healthcare professionals and not the fake kind the socialists roll out!

Luckily for the rest of us our friend El Marco was there to cover it:

On September 10, 2009, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals came to Washington, D.C. from across the country to show their opposition to Obamacare. This rally exploded the government-created myth that there is unanimity amongst health care professionals for Democrat plans to take over health care. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons came to D.C. to present a petition from doctors to lawmakers. The AAPS has been a voice for private physicians since 1943. Their motto is Omani pro aegroto, “all for the patient”. The doctors met with the representatives from their respective states and argued for a platform that avoids unnecessary  bureaucratic intervention in health care.

Oleg from The People’s Cube had this to say:

My friends and I arrived from New York by car on Thursday the 10th, just in time to catch a sight at which to marvel: hundreds of doctors and nurses waving hand-made posters and chanting slogans in opposition to the government takeover of health care. Protesting in a park facing the Capitol building, medical professionals offered a resounding second opinion about the health of national medical care, with speaker after speaker exposing Obama’s proposal as malpractice…

Doctors had a better prescription: tax reform, tort reform, and allowing patients to purchase health insurance across state lines — a combination of measures that would save $120 billion every year without government rationing. Their rally received no coverage whatsoever in the “mainstream” media…
