Florida Doctor Sends Patients A Message

Whether the attorneys' general lawsuit challenging the healthcare "reform" individual mandate is successful or not under the Commerce Clause, one physician has already engaged in what the law sometimes call's "self help":
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 [Florida] 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 legal challenge about the recently enacted healthcare legislation will probably result in a 5-4 decision either way at the Supreme Court. Again, it just reaffirms how David Souter was such an incredibly poor choice for the high court. All these 5-4 decisions would likely be 6-3 had even a garden-variety moderate to conservative been appointed instead of Souter, and who retired early to make matters even worse.
