ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Doctors don’t have to quit because of Obamacare (“Obamacare’s doctorless world,” Opinion, Monday). All they have to do is strike.

I’m not talking about picketing, getting out in the streets or anything like that. I’m saying the doctors simply shouldn’t go to work and instead should have a national five-day doctors strike. Some doctors may be able to strike for only one day, others for two or three days, but some likely would do it for the entire five days. If Washington doesn’t listen to us and Obamacare isn’t repealed, they should continue striking.

The doctors wouldn’t have to do this alone. I think many workers in the United States would strike with them. Right now, the American people think their only option is to sit by helplessly and hope things get better in November. We’ve always been told that “the system works.” Well, the system doesn’t work. It never has. Washington just tries to make us all believe it does.

As for the Republicans in Congress, I give them another two weeks to go wobbly on us and start backtracking. We can’t wait until November; we need to start taking back our country now. With nationwide strikes, we won’t need our slack-jawed congressmen anymore. They should do what we elected them to do, and if they don’t, we strike.
