TLP: It Used To Be Funny When He Said He Was A "Dick Doctor"
The fallout from Obamacare continues ... and in just about the most personal way possible for patients of Dr. Jack Cassell, a Florida urologist who added a new sign in his office. It's a little more distressing than, "Please Show Your Insurance Card At Each Visit."
“If you voted for Obama,” says the taped-up sign, “seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now. Not in four years.”
The Times couldn't track Cassell down, but he assured The Orlando Sentinel that he would not refuse to treat a patient because of politics, because, “That would be unethical.” But it wouldn't bother him if Democrats who saw the sign found another doctor.
Cassell's congressman, Democrat Alan Grayson, was a big Obamacare backer and couldn't wait to unzip and piss all over his constituent.
More from the NYT:
“I think it’s disgusting,” he said. “I know that most people go into health care because they want to help sick people. They don’t have some political agenda. I think it’s outrageous that someone would try to press his political agenda.”
He added, “I think the sore losers are out in force.”
Of course, if there's anyplace you're going to find people who want to be "sore" losers, it's a urologist's office.
Update: JDA spoke to a different doctor in a different congressional district who prefers to remain anonymous but had this to say:
"Even in time of war and the even in the battleground the mission of a Doctor is to assist and care for the wounded ‘friend and enemy’. This so called Dr. dares to deny care to people that simply think different than him?...truly pathetic. All that Dr. Cassell cares is his pocket.
"Dr. Cassell is just one more expression of extremism in this country. What is next? If you voted for Obama, if you are not anglo-white, if you are not Christian and churchgoer, if you are not straight....go elsewhere to look for care.
"A true expression of the times America is going through. A time in which angry people throw money and insult a poor man with Parkinson’s disease holding a sign simply expressing a different opinion, a time when people spit and yell angry racial slurs to congressman, a time when people threaten with ‘death’ others that have a different point of view. A truly sad time for America."
Word, Doctor, word.
