And because of the Obama healthcare reform boondoggle, each and every one will have health insurance.
    Hundreds of millions, huh? If a rightwinger on the internet says so, it must be true!!

    Really???

    Tell that to the person that spends 8 years in college followed by 3 to 7 years of residency working 80 hours a week for practically nothing. If you ask me, averaging a doctor's income over their entire medical career is relatively low.

    But you feel free to go to a doctor making $30,000 / year. I've seen the teeth of Europeans and I'll stick to American doctors and dentists.

    OK, I'm about done with your silly and childish retorts. I suggest you look up the population of the U.S. and its demographics.

    But here's a hint........... There are over 300 million people in the country right now and around 40 million over the age of 65.

    So yes, hundreds of million people under the age of 65 is accurate.

    I can't believe you actually didn't know that basic fact.

    Yes, really. Doctors in this country make much more money than doctors everywhere else. Thirty thousand is obviously not realistic, but it's also not realistic for them to making high six and low seven figures, as some do. This is one of the advantage of single payer. Why do our doctors make so much money relative to doctors elsewhere? They make so much because private insurers pay them that much.

    Maybe because they have to pay for college. Med school is about $50K/yr, maybe more. So now tell me what this has to do with the topic.

    And again, the rightwingers have to deny the facts. Too bad the facts have a leftwing bias

    Why do our people on welfare have so much more than poor people in other countries ????

    Based on your response, I'm assuming you also don't think basketball players and actors should make as much as they do.

    Have you always envied the success of others ??

    I think it's hilarious when a rightwinger posts a source that even he doesn't believe.

    Of course since you said it, that makes it so.
