Today I received a letter from one of the best doctors that I have ever known, Dr. Allan Dobzyniak. Allan has been retired for about a year and a half now, but is certainly keeping his eye on what’s going on in the health care debate.
Here is what Allan said.
“I wonder if these guys are driven more by ideology? Of interest, there is not one physician invited to the health care summit tomorrow though there are 16 in congress. But really, what do we doctors know about medicine anyway? It makes one curious if the summit might really have an alternative agenda other than health care.”
Well I actually looked it up and it seems that there are sixteen doctors in congress. Eleven of those sixteen are Republicans and five are Democrats. Two serve in the Senate and fourteen serve in the House of Representatives, seven of who are on three committees preparing a Health Care Bill. And just for the record, there are 204 lawyers in Congress,(152 Representatives and 51 Senators).
But you’re right none, as of this writing, have been invited to the Health Care Summit meeting on February 25th. What’s wrong with this picture?
