My sweetieheart directed me to a post she linked to on her facebook page. Being the ever attentive and supportive spouse (Stop laughing out there, it could happen!!), I went and read it.
The site is called Campaign For Liberty , and though a decidedly libertarian/Ron Paul leaning place, they do have some interesting commentary. This particular one addresses the massive governmental push (at all levels) for “health care”. Written by Dr. Jane M. Orient, a practicing physician, it is dead on as to what we collectively need to be addressing.
The problem is the forest. Cutting down a tree here and there isn’t enough. The question is whether we want to put the federal government in control of American medicine. And about the related question of what medicine should be.
Now that I have whetted your interest, go and read the whole thing. This is indeed one Doctor that “gets it”. And wanna bet she was not one of the attending physicians at Obama’s photo shoot at the White House, a couple of weeks ago?
