Rand In Guatemala Performing Charity Eye Surgeries (video)

Rand Paul Heads To Guatemala To Conduct Charity Eye Surgeries
16 Aug 2014
ANTIGUA, Guatemala — Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is visiting Guatemala to perform pro bono eye surgeries, a trip his political advisers are saying is strictly charity work but offers an important platform for the Kentucky Republican at the epicenter of the border crisis.

“It is an honor for me to be able to use my skills as an ophthalmologist to give back to the community,” Paul told Breitbart News. “I am thrilled to join a team of ophthalmologists in Guatemala to perform life changing and sight-restoring surgeries.”

Rand is getting attacked in the comments

for doing charity work overseas, instead of in the United States. Even though he did some free eye surgeries in the United States just last week! What a bunch of dingbats.

In a word, these attacks for helping the needy are "disgusting."

It's actually not permitted to provide free medicare in this country. Community Health Centers are as cheap as it gets, $10/visit. Surgical procedures, like Rand is doing, are NOT part of this care.
You are right, but I think these people are way more than dingbats. These attacks are purposefully being done to Rand.


I think there are more Guatemalans here than there...Can;t he give free care to illegal criminals?


My ex is from Guatemala. He really is a very honest and good person.
I've been there twice and the Guatemalans are the nicest people.
It's true that there are many illegal Guatemalans in the US.
If you want to know their recent history and why they are in the US, check out a documentary:

You may be disgusted at what the US government did to that country.

Last time Rand talked about

Last time Rand talked about this, he said there are regulations preventing doctors from doing charity work in the US, so it's actually easier to go overseas to do it.

Odd thing.

That sounds as if he feels a great internal push to do free eye surgeries somewhere, anywhere, just do them no matter what. This does not make sense.

Hmmmm, sounds like he will tackle THAT issue

in the near future. He really does seem to be getting the R3VOLution message out there, in his own way, all over the place.
