MOUNT DORA — 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."
As I've written a few times, I'm not a fan of the "health care" bill, but I think all of the people cheering what the doctor posted are foolish and not thinking.
Suppose a patient of the doctor doesn't do well under the doctor's care. Suppose the patient then sues the doctor saying the doctor was against the "health care' bill while they, the patient, supported the "health care" bill and they think the reason why their treatment didn't do well is because of their opposing political views?
