From the article:
"This is war," Dr. George Watson, a Kansas physician and president-elect of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, told FOXNews.com Thursday. "This is a bureaucratic boondoggle to grab control of health care. Everything that has been proposed in the 1,018 page bill will contribute to the ruination of medicine."
The Mayo Clinic, a non-profit organization and internationally renowned medical practice group, took issue with patient care quality that will result if the president's bill becomes law:
"Although there are some positive provisions in the current House Tri-Committee bill -- including insurance for all and payment reform demonstration projects -- the proposed legislation misses the opportunity to help create higher-quality, more affordable health care for patients."
"In fact, it will do the opposite," the clinic said in a July 16 statement on its Web site.

Lori. That is not a statement from the Mayo Clinic, that is words from a blog posted on the Mayo site by a person with the pen name janej. Do you see how Faux news deceives?
Also Watson and the AAPS are conservative. They have consistently given campaign donations to Republican and Libertarian candidates. The AAPS opposed Government healthcare in the 40's too. Clearly a biased viewpoint

I'm not going to argue with you because I know you're a circular thinker and no matter what is said you end up right where you started.
Final say to you: Its a blog, you don't know the author, and the words opinions stated aren't necessarily those of the Mayo Clinic. Same thing as during the election when some hateful stuff and threats were posted on a Republican website. They said they don't endorse the content of the blogs and message boards, same applies here.
