A Nebraska Doctor’s Message for Senator Ben Nelson

Michelle Malkin has posted a seething message from Dr. Becky Hollibaugh of Friend, Nebraska to sellout Senator Ben Nelson (D-Neb.). I am sure there are many more letters like this one being sent to Nelson’s office. The letter is as follows:

Dear Senator Nelson:

I send this message under “Tort Reform” because the current monstrosity you have pledged your support to says nothing whatsoever about Tort Reform. You have sold the physicians of Nebraska for zilch (zilch for us, but beaucoup federal bucks for you and the liberal partisans in this state). As a family practice physician in Small Town, Nebraska, I was counting on you to be the lone voice of Democratic sanity on this issue, but you sold me out. I will dedicate
every spare minute of my time and every spare dollar I have to defeating you, should you run for re-election. The long hours I spent on my medical education and the long hours I spend treating my patients are nothing but chump change to you and your Democrat colleagues in Washington. I especially can’t wait for your equivocation and milquetoast evasion when your “compromises” on the abortion language in the bill are silently erased or quietly (on-little-legislative-cat’s-feet) eviscerated in the House/Senate give-and-take. Go on: Bet me that you won’t wuss-out on this issue!

I know you won’t give two-seconds to this letter, but I had to write it. I’m a primary care doctor in YOUR state, and you sold me out. I didn’t slog through 4 years of college and 4 years of medical school and 3 years of residency just to have you hand my career and my patient/doctor relationships over to government lifers. Your gutless acquiescence to Obama and Harry Reid and ‘Nanny’ Pelosi will NOT be forgotten.

Thank you, Ben, for forcing doctors like me to earn less than the repairmen who fix our appliances. Case in point: We recently had our dishwasher fixed. The repairman who came to our house charged $65 just to come and ‘diagnose’ the problem, then charged another $180 to ‘fix’ the problem. You and your fellow lawmakers have fixed MY going rate (Medicare) at $35 per-visit. Thank you for securing such a ‘lucrative’ rate for me! Thank you so much for making me–someone with 8 years of education!–make less than a mechanic or appliance repair technichian. And thanks especially for falling in line with Obama and the rest of the Democrats to make such a socialist system permanent.

You have my disgust and disdain forever, you socialist-coddling coward.

Sincerely,
Becky F. Hollibaugh, D.O.
Warren Memorial Hospital
Ziimmerman Clinic
Friend, NE 68359

    If you are wondering why your comment has not been approved it’s due to the fact that it is merely a childish emotional rant which contains 3rd grade like name calling. This will not be tolerated on this board. As stated on my “about” page, if you would like to refute a post please do so with facts to back up your argument.

  4. I really don’t care whether you post my comment or not but if you are going to block whatever javabeannwill wrote for a childish emotional rant and name-calling, you should at least be consistent with blocking the 2nd and 3rd comments! I can’t imagine that javabean was more childish or insulting as they were. But then, the letter by Dr. Hollibaugh is pretty immature too. So I do wonder what are your actual guiding principles on this blog? Liberals need to produce facts but conservatives get a free pass when it comes to publishing their tantrums?

    If’n she no likee…findee another profession. She’s a D.O. not an M.D. and a new one at that. She writes crudely, proclaims loudly. Neither you nor I would send out that vulgar a missive to our senators. After all, Nelson does want all states to gain the same benefit, which they shall. One cannot win a debate by shouting or screaming – the Republicans are learning that. Medicare has never paid the providers well…where has she been? She should advise her patients that they need to provide supplemental insurance coverage, this is not new. If’n she no wantee Medicare/Medicaid…findee private practice. The “irate” doctor has choices…she should make some instead of showing her ignorance. Yeah, I also read her addendum…more moaning. She loves her rural practice, loves her rural patients then what the heck does she expect – Harley Street? When other doctors were working hard towards earning their M.D.’s I’ll bet they asked themselves a zillion times as to what the rewards would be? Why didn’t she?

    You wanna bet that physicians will NOT leave the profession after health care passes? Yeah, a very few threaten, who cares? As for the most part they’re the “specialists” lined up at the current feed trough. They’re interested in the all powerful $$$ rather than the patient. Professional dedication? More like blatant greed. And this “irate” doctor sounds disappointed that her chance at that feed trough is being diminished. That’s the truth that’s hurting her.

    If this “irate” doctor is correct in her moaning then just why is the AMA supporting health care reform? Why haven’t other doctors voiced their “irateness” on the right wingnut, Michelle Malkin’s soapbox of a website? Just where is this overwhelming provider outcry? All I hear is deafening silence, except for the screeching of a few malcontents, such as this “irate” doctor. Sorry, but her noisy squeaking will fail to find any grease.

  6. Castleton Rockford says:

    The irate doctor’s letter to Senator Ben Nelson smacks of being a hoax.

    1. Totally unprofessional letter writing – closer to being sophomoric. Doctors are trained to be “calm, cool and collected” as are nurses, which this individual claims to have been.

    2. The “irate” doctor tells of her satisfaction serving a rural community in Friend, Nebraska yet she shows an office address in Lincoln, Nebraska – hardly a rural community.

    3. She signs her letter as being attached to the Warren Memorial Hospital, Zimmerman Clinic. There is NO Zimmerman Clinic. There IS a Zimmer Clinic. Would a doctor attached to the real clinic make such a mistake?

    4.Did Michelle Malkin follow the cardinal rule before posting this “irate doctor’s “missive” to the Internet? It’s called a “fact check” something too few wish to do.

    Will the real doctor stand up? I look forward to Snopes – Urban Legends investigating then revealing the truth.

    To: Castleton Rockford:

    Al Gore invented the internet Just. For. You. Google is your friend, Castleton.

    I am a ‘real’ doctor. D.O.’s are the legal and professional equals to M.D.’s. A doctor who graduated from Australia (among other countries) earns an M.B.B.S. degree–also the equivalent degree to the M.D.. A D.O. can, after completing the proper residency, be a brain surgeon, a general practice ‘sawbones’ (family practice, internal medicine, etc.), an OB/GYN, or any other specialty. But don’t take my word for it, do an internet search.

    I was a “calm, cool, and collected” nurse for many years before I went to medical school. You are the one displaying ignorance. You don’t ‘understandsee’ the ‘degreesees’ of ‘doctorsees’? (Get it?)

    I ‘display’ an address in Lincoln, but ‘practice’ in Friend? You half-wit! I did a residency in Lincoln and NOW (as in CURRENTLY) practice in Friend. Do you really know how to use the internet? I did my family practice residency at LMEP in lincoln from 2005 through 2008. I have been a family practice physician in Friend from 2008 until the present. I.e., you are an idiot who can’t use the internet.

    Google “Dr. Becky Hollibaugh” and you’ll find my picture, my credentials, my practice in Friend, and anything else your tiny liberal brain can handle. I DARE you to reveal who you really are, you little weasel. Do it. Give your real name and workplace.

    And if you think my letter was “vulgar,” I’m Okey Dokey with that. Your little rant was uninformed and idiotic. You don’t know your medical degrees, you don’t know how to use Google, you don’t know rural medicine, and you sure as hell don’t know what the ‘Health Care Reform’ bill was going to do to primary care in this country. Thank God Scott Brown was elected. And thank God I can expose you as the idiot you are on this ‘innertubes’ forum of which you are so blithely unaware.

    Again: Google it, folks: Dr. Becky Hollibaugh.

    If the web-guru of this site wishes to verify that I am the real Doctor Hollibaugh, please reply to this post with an e-mail address or call the Zimmer Medical Clinic. I’ll gladly reply. If the dipshit “Castleton” wants to reply, well, I feel sorry for him.

    Dr. Becky Hollibaugh
    Friend, Nebraska

    Castleton? Hello? Are you out there? You’ve been called out. Chicken.

  9. Becky Hollibaugh says:

    Castleton? Oh, Castleton? Where are you? Coward. Weenie. Yellow-belly. Wuss. What other words are there? I’m thinking of something that begins with a “p.”

    Hi Becky, thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog and respond to other comments. I don’t blame you for being upset. I would definitely be very upset myself. Keep fighting the good fight and I support you 100%.
