The Doctors Letter


 
Image

 
Pictured is a young physician by the name of Dr. Roger 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 Emergency Room 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 ringtone.


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 pack of cigarettes every day, eats only at fast-food take-outs, and somehow still has money to buy pretzels and beer. And, you and our 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 spend money on luxuries and vices while refusing to take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. It is a culture based in the irresponsible credo that "I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me". 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.

Respectfully,
ROGER STARNER JONES, MD

Re: The Doctors Letter


very true. It's so often I see these guys at Tx with 60k boats being towed with 35k trucks but have no jobs or health insurance. I just wish I knew how they do it. They pull into the shop and tell me they have no money but can I help them out and fix their brand new boat on the cuff. I don't mind doing it and most of the time we can barter out some method of payment or I get some job I needed done for their fee. But it does takes some ca-hones to go into a place of business and ask for free work. I know I couldn't do it.
   I guess it's a matter of priorities but I was brought up to pay my own way and take responsibility for my debts. It was kinda embarrassing to take a handout back then now its expected.

That's the problem. People know that they can't be turned down for health care so they don't worry about it.The more and more it happen the more the insurance premiums like mine and yours go up. I think they should make it manditory to show proof of medical insurance to be able to purchase a cell phone, cigs,alcohol,candy,or anything that is not a have to thing.That is one of the reasons I went to the HSA plan at work.Everything I pay for insurance goes on a debit card for me to use on anything medical.I go to the doctor maybe once a year at the most and I was getting tired of paying the premiums and not useing them. Now I pay and it is still mine to use. emoticon
