    People don't respect the position or know what it takes. They have to go to school much longer than I ever would (and I have a masters), pay hundreds of thousands in education and tuition costs, pay huge malpractice insurance payments that border on the absurd, and still find a way to compensate themselves to fit the scarcity, skill, and specialty of their craft.

    And in one fell swoop, Democrats are going to take that all away from them and make them on pace with someone who eeked out of college with a plethora of Cs and squeezed himself into a random pedestrian job. Yeah, like we're not short on doctors and nurses already. Not only will you create a demand crisis, but you'll push away the more brilliant minds because the field is simply not worth their time.

    Anyone who wants to play the altruism card and whine about how "it should be about the patients", put your money where your mouth is and make the sacrifices to become a doctor. If Obama came along and told me that I had a cap on what I could charge, I'd tell him to jack himself.
    Sure. If that makes you feel better. Say it to me. I couldn't care less.

    Okay, I can see I am dealing with someone who is just as unprofessional as the doctor is. Buh-bye.

    I see nothing has changed, aps. You still walk away from intelligent, valid point-counterpoint.

    Come back when you gain the ability to sack up and debate.

    Well, I do agree with you from the legal aspect of it. However, I think he would be worthy of criticism, just as this guy is. This guy shouldn't be surprised if his business suffers as a result. I just think it's incredibly stupid to get so bent out of shape about politics that you try to instill it into your business practices.

    I think it has less to do with the politics and more to do with the fact that this piece of legislation is going to cripple him in the wallet. As someone in my field, Obama's policies will actually create more jobs, and I'm still adamantly against his administration.

    You're not talking about a field that's only going to be slightly affected to the point you can shrug it off. The adverse effects of doctors in this country long-term are going to be immense. And, as much as everyone doesn't want to hear it, this is still a for-profit business. If you do what you do because you love it and it makes you feel good, so be it. You're in the minority.

    I can believe that. The number is topsy turvy. I'm interested to see where we're at in a year or two from now.

    Speakin' of RCP, can you believe this?

    Obama's approval rate:

    Approve 47.8
    Disapprove 45.8

    Looks like "The American People" approve of Obama.

    Go figure.

    I promise you, I find nothing "personal" about this, just a travesty of medical responsibility being praised and encouraged by the usual irresponsible "McVeigh Wannabe's" (Hannity's phrase, not mine).The health care bill has done nothing to damage this doctor's practice or the treatment options of any of those who scream "dictatorship" The irresponsible recklessness of the wingnuts on the right is fast making them irrelevant in contributing to the growth of this nation.

    Sure. And if it is indeed in violation of the ethics of his profession, the proper authority has the option of revoking his license. Then he won't run the risk of serving anyone he doesn't agree with. Win-Win

    How does his hippocratic oath preclude him from actively taking part in the political discourse of his country? He isn't harming anyone. He is helpful in telling them there are other urologists to see them.

    He's well within his rights and ethics to post that sign, especially since he isn't actually turning anyone away. I think people get a little too upset about tongue in cheek displays of political discourse.

    They don't know what's in the bill, and the bill has yet to take effect, so they don't yet realize how much their lives will be improved by it. Your poll is meaningless.
