bless this guy. He's right on.
View of a young Doctor:
Diagnosis, prognosis and cure in
just three (3) short paragraphs !!! If
you doubt any part of what Dr. Jones says, go
visit your local hospital emergency room as an
observer for an hour or so some Friday or Saturday
night. See how many responsible people
you can send this to !!!
Pictured below is
a young physician by the name of Dr. Starner
Jones. His short two-paragraph letter to the White
House accurately puts the blame on a "Culture
Crisis" instead of a "Health Care Crisis".
It's worth a quick read:
Dear Mr. President:
During my shift in the
last night, I had the pleasure of evaluating a
patient whose smile revealed an expensive shiny
gold tooth, whose body was adorned with a wide
assortment of elaborate and costly tattoos, who
wore a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and
who chatted on a new cellular telephone equipped
with a popular R&B ring tone. While glancing
over her patient chart, I happened to notice that
her payer status was listed as "Medicaid"! During
my examination of her, the patient informed me
that she smokes more than one costly pack of
cigarettes every day and somehow still has money
to buy pretzels and beer.
And, you and ourspend
Congress expect me to pay for this woman's health
care? I contend that our nation's "health
care crisis" is not the result of a shortage of
quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. Rather, it
is the result of a "crisis of culture", a culture
in which it is perfectly acceptable to
on luxuries and vices while refusing to take care
of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health
insurance. It is a culture based on the
irresponsible credo that "I can do whatever I want
to because someone else will always take care of
Once you fix this "culture crisis"
that rewards irresponsibility and dependency,
you'll be amazed at how quickly our nation's
health care difficulties will disappear.
If you agree…pass it on.
YES YES YES
