What Is It About Opthamologists?

| May 21, 2010 | 0 Comments
Last month, there was a story about two female ophthalmologists who rudely harassed Barney Frank on a plane about his vote on healthcare reform.  Now we have the new Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, who’s clearly either a nutcase or a cynic on a number of levels.  Here’s a story that describes his contradictory stances in favor of slashing government spending….except for doctors’ fees, from which he personally benefits.  The anti-government zealot derives half his income from Medicare patients and sees no contradiction.

I really struggle to understand how somebody who can handle the intellectual rigors of medical school can be so dumb when it comes to public policy.  What’s up with that?
