From Ron Paul’s Linked-in Profile:
Over nearly four decades of medical practice in Brazoria County, Texas, I have delivered more than 4,000 babies. In 2001, I was one of only eight doctors in the House (including dentists).
Because I do not believe government should control the doctor/patient relationship, I have never accepted Medicare and Medicaid payments as a physician. Instead, I worked for free or arranged discounted or custom-payment plans for needy patients. In short, “I just took care of them.”
We could use a lot more non-professional-politicians in congress, couldn’t we?
