Bloom Author, The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues July 22, 2009 Doctors start their careers with an oath: “First, do no harm.” Obviously, politicians don’t take an oath like that, because President Obama’s healthcare reform plan is the classic case of a “cure” that’s worse than the disease. But, tragically, misplaced belief in seven dangerous myths about the plan is deceiving many well-meaning people into supporting ObamaCare: Myth #1: Everyone will have access to good healthcare. Myth #2: Healthcare costs will be brought under control. Myth #3: Healthcare will be fairer. Myth #4: Patients will have freedom of choice. Myth #5: Our healthcare system will still be the best in the world. Myth #6: We can afford ObamaCare. Myth #7: Healthcare reform is our most urgent need.
