    You people worry about the doctors too much. They will come out of this just fine. They will still be the richest people in town.
    Doctors are pretty important.
    If you don't have them, there is no medical system.
    Med school rationing will still be happening, otherwise, the AMA would of never supported the bill.

    I wish you guys would understand that we all got hustled with this last round of legislation.

    i don't follow you

    why would one expect mediocrity from a physician whose focus is wellness instead of money

    The money is just compensation for all the hours of study, labwork, internships and residencies that make up the life of the med student. Why the hell shouldn't a doctor who sacrificed most of his/her life to be duly compensated??? Oh, but I forgot, you think doctors should not make anything more than the minimum wage, doncha??

    What's wrong with that? Putting money ahead of what is best for the patient? That is one of the biggest problems with our healthcare system.

    Nope, it all depends on the condition. Some people can live years with COPD or hypertension, a stent, cancer survivors, etc.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Money is an incentive to do more and better, it has always been that way.
    That is why some doctors work what I consider to be ridiculous hours, they want more money.

    I bolded the part I disagree with, they all got hustled, meaning supporters of this bill and the Democratic party, we all got screwed as a nation, professional, and consumer base because they supported this ****.

    Money does not equal excellence. The very best doctors are not in it for the money.

    I take it you'd have no problem with doctors earning less than the national poverety level?? Pathetic, but then again, that's what I would expect from a Lib like you!!
