As a Doctor, I’m Sick of All The Health Care Freeloaders

I used to believe that everyone deserved health care. Now, I work in a clinic where the vast majority of my patients are on government-funded health care. I have learned that the stereotypes about these people are true: Most of my patients have never worked a day in their lives.

They are extremely ungrateful for the care that hardworking taxpayers provide for them. Patients have punched me, bitten me, screamed at me, and even urinated on me. I often leave with vomit on my clothes.

Sometimes, I have to bribe my patients with bright-colored objects, juice or graham crackers just to examine them. Do my patients thank me? Do they contribute to the economy? No!

They just suck up low-cost health care, whining the whole time, and then go pick up their free government milk. Often, they are literally carried from place to place in the arms of a real taxpayer.


  1. She sounds nice. “Letting more American children die preventable deaths will send a strong message to kids across the country.”

    Don’t they have the Hippocratic oath in Texas?

  2. You may want to look up the origins of A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift

  3. I’m a great admirer of Dean Swift. I too read it as Swiftian satire at first. Maybe she did it too well; it’s not much different from rants I’ve read by various right-wing loons, doctors included.

    Maybe we should be reading Trump’s every utterance as brilliant performance art, coruscating satire of the finest kind.

    Apologies to the good doctor but you need to be careful. We live in an age which is Beyond Satire.

  4. Crying diapered patients? Is she describing politicians or babies?
