"Organized Medicine's Response To Obamacare . . .."

"The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new Obama
health care proposals.

The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not
to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut
feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had
a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception..
Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted. Pathologists
yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, Grow

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the
Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash
their hands of the whole thing. The Internists thought it was a
bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a
whole new face on the matter...."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were
pissed off at the whole idea. The Anesthesiologists thought the whole
idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up
to the assholes in Washington."
