A sign of things to come: Are fake doctors’ notes in Wisconsin a preview of fake healthcare?

by editor on February 21, 2011

For some of you, playing doctor probably brings back some embarrassing childhood memories you’d just as soon forget. Unless you live in Wisconsin, that is, where playing doctor continues on into adulthood.

According to Fox News, “…alleged doctors were handing out ‘fake’ sick notes to protesters – allowing them to call in sick while the budget impasse continues.”

This genius doctor wrote a note for a genius teacher for February 19. That's a Saturday, guys!

It seems that the “alleged doctors” in question were “standing on street corners handing them (notes) out to whomever asked” and were not even performing alleged exams or asking alleged questions about the protestors alleged health conditions before passing the notes out.

Could it be that the Most Union-Loving President That Ever Was Or Ever Will Be convinced the medical professionals of Wisconsin to go out and show America what we have to look forward to under ObamaCare?

Just think America! No more long waits in the doctor’s office reading last year’s issues of Sports Illustrated and Gallbladder Monthly. No more embarrassing coughing. And no more sinister “Bend over and spread ‘em.” Just an immediate fake diagnosis and immediate fake treatment.

We’re pretty sure that most doctors are not members of a union, so what prompted them to begin writing fake notes? We’d guess they just got caught up in the fake patriotism of the moment.

I’m sure there are many unemployed teachers who would gladly step in for less pay. Hell, most janitors (no offense intended to all the hard working custodians across the nation) could probably do a better job of teaching than that bunch of union hacks.

Since the “teachers” decided to shut the schools down by not showing up for work, then the governor should fire all of them and start again.

If I were a parent of a child in school there I would be protesting against the “teachers” for not doing their job, teaching my child.

If I were a parent of a child the “teachers” took out of class and forced him/her to attend this protest I would be kicking someones ass, then demand they be fired. I did not send my children to school to listen to political idiology from some union dipshit. I sent my kids to school to learn how to read and write. They learned how to work math problems. They learned our history, both state and country, and what the capital of South Dakota is.

When my children graduated from high school they had a basic understanding of how our government works, it used to be called a civics class. They could find Laos or Morocco on a world map, they knew who Fermi was and his impact on the world. Show me a kid today that can do the same thing.

If you can I will know there is one teacher that deserves a job. The rest of them can go on the public dole for all I care.

The difference is they would not be “earning” $70K per year plus benefits and retirement at an early age. It would be much cheaper to give them welfare in the long and let the parents choose who they wanted teaching their kids.

It’s a more complicated than that but the point is why should any of us pay taxes for education when education is not what our kids get in public schools.

It is time educators started running things instead of union thieves and wanna-be teachers sucking on the public teat. The cow is dry and it is time these over educated dummies get a lesson in real life.

Oh, okay, but when we fire them why even pay them welfare? Let em go out and get jobs cleaning toilets and washing dishes, that way they can be all simpatico with their south of the border crowd. Isn’t that what they’re always whining and crying about…I mean, it’s not like they’re really doing anything vital or useful at the moment?

Myself, I think that if they are OK with fake doctors’ notes to get them off work, then they shouldn’t have any objections to getting paid in *real* Monopoly money.

“It’s a loud “F*** you” from State employees to Wisconsin taxpayers.”

You know, I’ve always heard and believed that what goes around comes around!
We can always give them the finger back by insisting that the Govenor fire all insubordinate teachers and state employees, regardless of their union affiliations. It’s time these idiots realize who actually controls their paychecks. Pinkslip the whole lot of them and hire new blood across the board! No more platinum plated benefit packages…we can’t afford them anyway!

Blatant fraud and corruption, the people must demand charges be laid against the perpetrators. Students understand all too well what their teachers are doing and it’s the wrong lesson for them.

These are not phony “doctors” they are real doctors associated with the University of Wisconsin. When I first heard this story I thought that it was a lie, but it’s not, it’s the absolute truth, doctors in my state of Wisconsin have acted unethically and illegally and in collusion with members of teachers’ unions.

Doctors and union members have conspired to commit medical fraud and tax fraud. These doctors work for the University of Wisconsin and, like the union members are paid by Wisconsin taxpayers, including me.

This is disgusting and outrageous. The doctors should be fired and prosecuted,
any union member using these phony sick notes should be suspended without pay, or fired.

One of the criminal doctors was interviewed, he stated that he did nothing wrong but was merely expressing his solidarity with the protesting union members. The scary thing is these university doctors are teaching ethics to a new generation of doctors. the depressing thing is that everyone involved with this fraud will probably escape with a slap on the hand.

It’s a loud “F*** you” from State employees to Wisconsin taxpayers.

I always though that part of being a doctor was to profess to following a code of ethics. I guess, like politicians swearing to uphold the Constitution, it’s ok to break the code if you’re a progressive.

These “doctors” are part of the cost cutting program under obamacare. The ones with MDs will get a pink slip and these mexicans/unemployed philosophers/whatever will get paid 30% their salary. Its a win win! HC costs go down and these poor indigent people will get a living wage. What can go wrong?

If they weren’t doctors, they should be arrested for impersonating a doctor. If they WERE doctors, they should lose their license. Just like the teachers. Any that falsified reports of their own illness to defraud the school district should be fired immediately. And the school buses? Who drove those there? Who OK’ed that? Where is the immense paper trail that must go along with taking kids and buses on a “field trip?” Fire those responsible. If this was done to support a conservative cause, you know all this would happen.
