Last week, a Florida doctor posted this sign on his office door:
A doctor who posted a sign at his practice asking Obama supporters to seek care “elsewhere” will end up denying service to many African Americans, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) said Friday.
Dr. Jack Cassell, an opponent of the healthcare law President Barack Obama signed last month, put up the sign at his office in Grayson’s district.
“Well, in fact, where he lives, in Mount Dora, which is in my district, many, many of the Democrats who live in Mount Dora happen to be African-Americans,” Grayson said on CNN. “So, by saying that he will not treat somebody who supported Obama, he’s saying that he’s not going to treat a large number of African-Americans in the community.”
I’m assuming there are a few white Democrats in Grayson’s district (52% of Grayson’s district voted for Obama in 2008, and 7.2% of the people in Grayson’s district are black, so it’s safe to assume there are white Democrats living near the doctor), but it wouldn’t appear they’re on the Representative’s radar screen when it comes to milking the story of Cross Burner, MD.
The doctor said he would turn nobody away, but if they chose to go away, so be it. And this whole time I thought Grayson was pro-choice.
If we are to believe Democrats, African-Americans don’t have health insurance, and since Obamacare benefits don’t kick in for at least four years, they wouldn’t be able to go see the doctor until then anyway, so what’s Grayson fretting about?
Grayson also called the doctor “unethical.” Dr. Cassell doesn’t take the high road and keep it classy like Grayson does:
