    The American public remains evenly divided on whether President Obama's health care plan should be passed, according to the latest Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll.

    Forty-six percent of all respondents came out in favor of passing the bill, with 45 percent against it.

    He's well within his rights and ethics to post that sign, especially since he isn't actually turning anyone away. I think people get a little too upset about tongue in cheek displays of political discourse.
    Don't be coy, he is harming any patient who traveled to his office to seek treatment, if they don't follow his radical political viewpoint. If I voted for Obama, I certainly wouldn't trust this guy with my privates.

    Well, then, Jallman is even more correct, after all. I certainly think the doctor has done all of his patients a service, conservative and liberal alike. Really, why would any of them want to use such an immature person for their medical care.

    I am not being coy. And he is harming no one. And his viewpoint isn't radical; it's actually agreed with by 2/3's of the country.

    And since you voted for Obama, I doubt this guy's feelings are hurt by you keeping your privates to yourself.

    You show me someone who walks into an office with an emergency life-or-death urology issue and I'll support you.

    I would use him for my healthcare. Nothing immature at all about his tongue in cheek sign. He even stated, clearly enough for anyone who read the article instead of going "ZOMGWTF, doctor hates OBAMA let's get him", that he isn't actually turning patients away.

    Grow up.

    As a business owner he has a right to do this. As a doctor though he should be ashamed. There are plenty of doctors that do not like the Health Care bill, but none of them have sunk this low.

    How low? He hasn't actually turned anyone away. Why do you people have a problem with protected free political speech?

    Re: Doctor tells Obama supporters: Go elsewhere for health care

    if dr cassell actually SAYS out loud something so incendiary, how many others are THINKING it...

    doctors are gonna be turning away millions

    and NOT cuzza their politics

    the issue is twenty years old

    PHYSICIANS REFUSE MEDICARE PATIENTS - NYTimes.com

    and of course it's just as thorny today

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/02/bu.../02health.html

    the point---how do you FORCE people to do that which they, y'know, deep inside themselves, don't want to do

    this was lenin's problem, as well

    he couldn't solve it, either (the dummy)

    Speakin' of RCP, can you believe this?

    Obama's approval rate:

    Approve 47.8
    Disapprove 45.8

    Looks like "The American People" approve of Obama.

    Go figure.
    Like you, I'm interested to see where we're at a year or two from now.
