Dr. Vanek is a board certified general and plastic/reconstructive surgeon.
It’s estimated that 40 million new uninsured individuals would enter the medical system under Obamacare. It’s also estimated that 16 million of these would be illegal aliens. Also consider that we have a medical system that has many physicians near retirement age who believe that it might be better to just retire early rather than continue to practice amid onerous regulations. Combine these two factors and you can see that if Obamacare passes, we will end up with a shortage of doctors.
This is just one problem within our healthcare system that had a growing number of physicians foregoing the large lobbying groups and personally heading to Washington D.C. to do their best to overturn ObamaCare. One group of doctors was headed up by Dr. Paul Vanek and Jeff Ziegler who sought to work every angle possible in order to save our medical system. At the time of this broadcast, Dr. Vanek had just returned from his inaugural Washington D.C. trip in which he and his medical colleagues visited a number of congressional and senate offices in a mission known as “Operation Whitecoat”.
