Pictured  below is a young physician by the name of  Dr.  Starner Jones.  His short letter to the White House  accurately puts the blame on a “Culture Crisis” instead of a “Health Care Crisis”.

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 musical 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.


About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
