    I'm not switching to anything at all. My point has been the same the entire time. Obama's economy is lipstick on a pig. His economic record is a disaster.

    The middle class in this country is being robbed by WA and Wall Street. The Big Banks are making out like bandits under Obama. For every job created in Obama's Economy 2 people get on food stamps. That's a disaster.

    And while all this is going on, Obama's foreign policy creates havoc on the ME, raising the price of oil. Obama's regulations kill cheap energy resource production. He's bankrupting the coal industry and making our dependence on foreign oil even more precarious. His radical extremist cronies continue to block domestic oil production and fracking, making prices rise for the MC and poor. His monetary policy is a joke/scheme that is robbing from savings. This country is HURTING economically. What is Obama doing? Campaigning. Stirring up racial tensions with Trayvon Martin to distract. Now he wants to pivot back to the economy. What's he going to do? Create another jobs council he'll never meet with? Propose another 1T Stimulus Plan that will fail? Listen to his speech.#smh

    Look at him. Coached and rehearsed spouting off cheesy nonsense. "The skys of tomorrow". He has a way with words that Obama. Look at him. The emperor has no clothes.

    Which is all meaningless. He can't control the economy. He and others just need you believing he can so he can take credit when it eventually improves. Politicians use this to lead sheep.

    And frankly, if he was a republican, you'd be swallowing it whole.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Have you told "your" President yet that he doesn't control the economy because he sure acts like it. Obamacare, demonizing wealth creation, regulations preventing Keystone Pipeline, regulations that are destroying the people of W. Va. Not sure what world you live in but the Federal Govt. under Obama is trying to control the economy and in doing so are creating the disastrous results we have right now.

    Read the column that says reality. They don't have them in the same sense we do. The rules are set by those who employ. The stakeholders, those employed, have no say. So, you are again showing you don't understand.

    He knows. He just needs stupid people to think he does.

    And frankly, his comments, often taken completely out of context by your side, are nothing like the demonization of workers, teachers, and others that your side does (and in accurate context).

    Oh BS, it's HIS policies, namely his signature law Obama-care, that's causing this perpetual disaster. Almost 5 years into his Presidency and his apologist are STILL making excuses for his failure.

    Nonsense. The economy went south before healthcare reform. You not thinking. Your just hating.

    It's the "Workers, Teachers and Others" who are suffering the most under Obama-nomics.

So, that in and of itself isn't anything to lose our minds over. Using you're numbers, which or not really anymore sound than mine, shouldn't scare doctors. They will still be making an excellent reward on their investment.

    Now, as for the doctor shortage, of course it isn't instant, which is why other health personal (a cheaper and sometimes even a more efficient option) will also play a role. Few things in life are instant, but you still have to take a step before you can get anywhere. We've spent a lot of years doing nothing. I'm willing to live through messy if it moves forward.
    Such as what? What other professions require 12-16 (or more) years of secondary education as well as the absolute level of technical knowledge that it requires to be a doctor?

    Doctors make up less then 10% of total healthcare costs. Noncompliance on behalf of the patient costs this country as much in medical bills as doctors do.

    Calculating the percentage using the most recent statistics on the number of practicing physicians in the U.S. from the American Medical Association and salary figures from MGMA, annual aggregate physician salaries total $216 billion, or 8.6% of total U.S. healthcare costs. The MGMA statistics were obtained from a 2010 report using 2009 data. Physician Pay Makes Up About 8% of Total Healthcare Costs
    Seems we should be focusing a little more on the other 91.4%.
