Florida doctor's anti-Obama stance sparks firestorm nationwide

Orlando Sentinel, April 5, 2010

A Mount Dora, FL, doctor has created a firestorm over a sign posted on his office door that reads, "If you voted for Obama . . . seek urologic care elsewhere." Jack Cassell, MD, a registered Republican, believes the sharply partisan, healthcare overhaul pushed through by Democratic members of Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama will harm his practice and thus his patients, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Cassell said he has not refused to treat any patient for his or her political views and does not quiz patients about their politics, but he also does not plan to take the sign down.
