The below clip is a keynote speech delivered last year by Dr. Elaina George at the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons 68th Annual Meeting, held in Atlanta, Georgia.
In the clip, Dr George explains how Obamacare will be dangerous for patient care, how the push to electronic record keeping will be dangerous and how health insurance companies and big pharma are in control.
It is not clear from the speech that she understands that free market medicine (and free market insurance) is the solution, but it is clear that she recognizes that Obamacare has created a massive power center that is controlled by insider insurance groups and big pharma. She understands that this power center will not be good for doctors or patients. Rather than roll back the power center, it appears she may be advocating that medical doctors gain control of the power center. That said, what she reveals about what Obamacare will mean for patient care is shocking.

She received her Masters degree in Medical Microbiology from Long Island University, and received her medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
