Florida Doctor: Don't Come To Me If You Voted For Barack Obama

Urologist Dr. Jack Cassell of Mount Dora, Florida has posted a sign telling patients to go elsewhere if they voted for Barack Obama.
A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care "elsewhere." "I'm not turning anybody away — that would be unethical," Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it." The sign reads: "If you voted for Obama … seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years."
Doctors cannot refuse patients based on their race, gender, religion, etc., but political preference is not one of the those protected classes. And here we've been told it's the Democrats that would cause the withholding of medical care.
