Physicians for Free Medical Care

I have discovered that THE ANSWER to ObamaCare, which is quite obviously unaffordable, is FREE medical care. I am hereby announcing the formation of a new organization of the most humanitarian medical practicioners on the planet today: Physicians for Free Medical Care.


I have a little work to do organizationally, and will get back to you on it. We will work out the petty little details over the next few weeks, but first let me introduce you to the word “Free”.
