LETTER: Not all doctors support Obama's public option plan

President Barack Obama is meeting this a.m. with a physician from each state. My assumption is that this meeting is designed to demonstrate that physicians are very much in favor of the public option to health care reform.
I wish to make it known that these physicians do not represent us nor do I believe they speak for the majority of physicians in the U.S. I oppose any such public option or mandate. When this president cherry-picks his audience, you can be almost assured that he is picking his bias to be heard. Let's make this debate fair and balanced. I am of the opinion that the majority of physicians do not favor a public option or mandate.
Robert E. Frazier, M.D., lives in Columbia.
