ObamaCare and me" by Zane F. Pollard, Atlanta based M.D.

Facts and figures from a real physician treating real patients from a column in the Houston Examiner.


  1. if he can give free care to illegals, they he should be willing to provide care to all americans whether they can pay or not. all of his facts address the issue of money so what is he really in the profession for? money or providing care?

  2. Dear Anonymous,
    Just because a person offers to help someone else in need shouldn't obligate him to help everyone in need. I suspect LOTS of doctors (some have already because of the increased burden of care and decreasing pay) will quit if they are forced to continue practicing medicine they way they are now without the financial incentive.
    The question of "what is he really in the profession for? money or providing care?" is an interesting one. But why stop there. Shouldn't we ask the same questions of our police force, fire fighters, politicians? Why are they in their professions? Do they want money or the blessed opportunity to serve.
