It's gotten to the point where people are tuning into Barack Obama's televised pressers just to hear what ignorant statement he will say next.

During Wednesday night's national press conference to push his lame duck health care reform bill, Obama said:

Right now, doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that's out there. … the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, 'You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid's tonsils out …

The American Academy of Otolaryngology, which represents 12,000 ear, nose, and throat surgeons in the U.S., reacted quickly to Obama's false -- and very misleading -- accusation.

The organization reminded Obama that in most cases, tonsillectomy is the most cost effective alternative to leaving a child's infected tonsils intact.

...the AAO-HNS is disappointed by the President's portrayal of the decision making processes by the physicians who perform these surgeries. In many cases, tonsillectomy may be a more effective treatment, and less costly, than prolonged or repeated treatments for an infected throat. READ MORE...

I bet if a doctor suggested a tonsillectomy for one of Barack's daughters, he wouldn't hesitate to let the doctor take the tonsils out.

I'll say it again: when all is said and done, Obama will be the worst president in United States history.

    Sandra, many doctors to offer diagnoses & treatments that are not appropriate for the patient. Now maybe all of them are not doing it based on fee payment, but rather being overworked or undereducated, but that does not deny the fact that some doctors do suggest surgeries that are not necessary and they're motivated by greed alone.

    Even the most racist, most backward Republican Conservative would disagree with this and tell you Dubya has that position all to himself:

    "I’ll say it again: when all is said and done, Obama will be the worst president in United States history."

    I thought Americans went to the polls to elect a President, not a Magician?

    I have worked in the medical field for over 25 yrs in private physicians offices as well as hospitals and the bottom line is MONEY. Sandra knows this if she is in the medical field also. Yes there is some that cares about the patient but if you are in their office and need a procedure done the first question is what type of insurance do you have and is it covered, what is the reimbursement rate etc...
    Again, bottom line is MONEY!!!
