Dr. Starner Jones’s letter to the President

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 costly pack of cigarettes every day 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.

    i have similar story when I go volunteer at Metropolitan Ministries….I am handing out food to people who have more gold on their body than I have in my jewelry chest back home….who have nicer nails and hair than I do as well as luxury pocketbooks. It makes me wonder why am I not on the receiving end. Sorry, I understand lifestyle choices but not on the taxpayer dime.

      Bless you for handing out food…. you aren’t on the receiving end because your life isn’t about taking from others to make yourself more comfy.

      Any reason you or I can give for not being on the receiving end is that we haven”t conformed to the twisted changes destroying our culture and way of life. I wonder if it’s lifestyle choices, or greed, or just plain stupidity of the recipients. Surely isn’t any of the character that built US waiting for those socialist services!
      We’re still a great nation, we just need to get rid of the nefarious idiots in Washington!

      mahalo for your comment.
