Doctor to Obama Supporters: Find Health Care 'Elsewhere'

America can't keep forcing doctors and hospitals into modern-day slavery by continually cutting their reimbursements, micro-managing their professional decisions and publicly accusing them of being greedy, and not expect to have a mass revolt on their hands. Doctors just want to make their patients better and be reasonably paid for their sacrifice of decades of intensive schooling and hours of stressful work. (They do have an average of $250k school debt to pay off, after all.) If there is anyone who should be making 6-figure-incomes in our country, it is these people who directly save lives everyday. Yet, our government is trying to force them to do more for less. You have it coming, America. Try to get our healthcare industry under your thumb and you will end up with no more good doctors or hospitals and more people dying from denied and inferior care.

A Florida doctor who opposes the new health care law posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Obama to get care "elsewhere," the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The sign on Dr. Jack Cassell's door reads, "Changes to your health care begin right now. Not in four years," the Sentinel said.

Cassell, a urologist, told the newspaper that he's not turning anyone away.

"That would be unethical," he said. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

A registered Republican, Cassell is providing his patients with photocopies of a health-care timeline produced by Republican leaders that outlines "major provisions" in the health care law -- and he's placed a sign above the stack of copies that reads, "This is what the morons in Washington have done to your health. Take one, read it and vote out anyone who voted for it."

Cassell told the newspaper that a patient's politics wouldn't affect his care for them, but he added he would prefer not to treat people who support Obama.

"I can at least make a point," he said.
