What DID Mayo Say?

The operative paragraph in the Mayo letter regarding ObamaCare:

Under the current Medicare system, a majority of doctors and hospitals that care for Medicare patients are paid substantially less than it costs to treat them. Many providers are therefore already approaching a point where they can not afford to see Medicare patients. Expansion of a Medicare-type plan without a method to define, measure, and pay for healthy outcomes for patients will move many doctors and hospitals across this threshold, and ultimately hurt the patients who seek our care. We should not put more Americans into the current unsustainable system.

Very nicely worded--almost as well-worded as a Douglas MacArthur statement--but it leaves little question about the viability of ObamaCare in the mind of Mayo's author.
