Obamacare's "War Against Doctor's"

Alabama Republican congressman Mo Brooks reads a letter from a Decatur, Alabama family practitioner Dr. Marlin Gill who exposes Obamacare's "war against doctors" and the subsequent damage being done to our healthcare system.

Doctors are leaving practices, switching to administrative jobs, or starting concierge practices- like my parents' internist, because of cumbersome regulations that add cost, raise overhead and ""gum up the works."   These new rules and regulations create a slower and less efficient practice, forcing doctors to spend more time on administrative tasks than treating patients. As part of Obamacare, there are new electronic medical records requirements,  including a new coding system. The current system has 13,000, Obamacare now has 70,000 new codes.  The cost to Gill's practice $80,000.  He now sees fewer patients, and many doctors fear non-payment by patients with Obamacare, since many are not paying their premiums.
