Government moves into the doctor’s office
San Francisco Chronicle

President Obama is attempting to calm fears about his new health overhaul law, saying at a recent town hall meeting in Iowa that his plan “isn’t a government takeover of our health care system” and if Americans “like their doctor, they’ll be keeping their doctor.”

That remains to be seen. A growing number of physicians who have studied the new law believe it will lead to significant government intrusion into medical decisions, and many warn they will close their practices before they will let that happen.
