A horse has to meet a doctor but not the people?


















City Council Horses Over People

Demands Health Care for Horses Same Week Fails to Help A Hospital From Closing
By Gary Tilzer

A horse has to meet a doctor but not the people?

The City Council has gone over the line. It passed a bill yesterday to demand carriage houses see a veterinarian twice a year while allowing a major city hospital to close St. Vincent’s Files for Bankruptcy Giving each horse five weeks off a year for some R&R outside the city may be needed but what about the thousands of New Yorkers who depended on St. Vincent to stay healthy. Yes the Council Speaker Quinn and the other yahoo pols appear at rallies to demand the hospital stay open, but their job after we elected them is to keep the hospital open. Now not only will St. Vincent patients suffer and die trying to locate new health care facilities , the other patients at other Manhattan hospitals will also suffer as they wait longer to see a doctor, because patients in the closed hospital will seek their hospital to be treated in.
