One Brave Doctor Stands Up To ObamaCare's Bad Medicine

I don't have a completely satisfactory answer when people ask me what we can do to combat the tyranny we are witnessing in this country, but one brave and principled Texas physician is showing how people can stand up.

Dr. Kristin Held of San Antonio, whom I've befriended on Twitter and grown to deeply admire for her vocal advocacy against Obamacare, has taken the next step in her battle — our battle.

Last week, she wrote a letter to Aetna insurance company terminating her participation in its program because of unilateral changes she said the company had made to its contract with her.

In her letter, Dr. Held informed Aetna that "Obamacare, the 'law of the land,' contains ever-changing-at-the-whim-of-HHS, 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."

She continued with something that cannot be said often and strongly enough, if for no other reason than President Obama will simply not acknowledge it and callously glosses over it, whether in his self-serving State of the Union speech or in his painfully evasive interview with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. "Millions of Americans," wrote Dr. Held," have lost coverage because of the healthcare law and must now shop on a defective, insecure government website and sign up for more expensive policies through Federal and State exchanges."

It is hard to believe that we are surrounded by so many in the idiot, moron, imbecile IQ range. This is the only explanation as to why the ghetto hustler was elected. Intelligent people didn't vote for him. Should have listened to the GOP. If you happen to run into a democrat who has lost their insurance or has had hours cut due to obamacare be sure and rub it in their faces. Rub it, smash it and smear it around all the while chanting "I told you so." It's the only way to get a moron to learn.

Hope Dr. Held is ready for an IRS audit.
