Kentucky’s junior Senator Rand Paul has held a state-issued medical license since in 1993. He has his own practice. And after becoming a U.S. Senator, Paul occasionally performs surgery, specializing in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, corneal transplants, and LASIK procedures.
Yesterday, Paul teamed up with Middletown, Kansas eye physician Frank R. Burns, M.D. to perform free eye surgeries in Louisville, Kentucky.
And apparently Senator Paul is going on a “medical mission trip to Guatemala.”
Paul “will be there with other eye surgeons to treat patients who need help w/ vision,” according to his Twitter feed. At a time when Washington, D.C. seems (hell, is) filled with insensitive, self-serving politicians who couldn’t care less, it’s good to see that some of them still genuinely care about their constituents.
Bravo, Senator Paul.
