    New York doctors are treating ObamaCare like the plague, a new survey reveals.

    A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.

    Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers.

    Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.

    “This is so poorly designed that a lot of doctors are afraid to participate,” said Dr. Sam Unterricht, president of the 29,000-member organization. “There’s a lot of resistance. Doctors don’t know what they’re going to get paid.”

    Three out of four doctors who are participating in the program said they “had to participate” because of existing contractual obligations with an insurer or medical provider, not because they wanted to.

    Well, obviously the Great Pretender's next step will be to pass a law requiring all doctors to participate.

    Which will result in two things:

    1. Doctors leaving their practice

    2. Impeachment proceedings

    Speaking of which, four and a half years ago, the odds the G/P would be impeached were 33-1, and that was three weeks after he took office.

    I'm wondering what they are now.
