There is still Free Speech in this country, I think.
A Florida urologist has posted on his door a sign to his patients basically telling them, if you voted for Obama, you might as well seek medicial attention elsewhere now instead of in four years. In other words, cut to the chase … because the present is now. Obamacare is BAD MEDICINE.
A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care “elsewhere.”
“I’m not turning anybody away — that would be unethical,” Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. “But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it.”
The sign reads: “If you voted for Obama…seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years.”
Estella Chatman, 67, of Eustis, whose daughter snapped a photo of the typewritten sign, sent the picture to U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, the Orlando Democrat who riled Republicans last year when he characterized the GOP’s idea of health care as, “If you get sick America … Die quickly.”
According to William Allen, professor of bioethics, law and medical professionalism at the University of Florida’s College of Medicine, “Dr. Cassell may be walking a thin line between his right to free speech and his professional obligation.”
The fact of the matter is, in four years when individuals are forced off their private plans and placed on the state run Medicaid rolls … most doctors are not going to accept them any how at that point.
Physicians cannot refuse patients on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual preference or disability. However, no where does it say political preference being legally protected specified in civil rights law.
All this doctor in essence is doing is flash-forwarding four years so that patients will understand the pain and the bad medicine that is Obamacare. As Another Black Conservative aptly calls it, “you reap what you sow.” Doctors will soon be opting out of health care plans because the reimbursements are too low to even do the service. Then there is the larger concern that doctors will be leaving the medical care industry altogether, according to the New England Journal of Medicine.
Interesting replies to the Orlando Sentinel survey asking, Is Mount Dora urologist Dr. Jack Cassell right to want Obama supporters to receive health care elsewhere?
