    I already said, that is not logistically possible, the Investor must be biased. 45% of any industry, but especially those in a lucrative industry like health care, are not going to quit their jobs no matter what. Doctors still have bills to pay and probably don't have any specialized training other than the medical profession which would enable them to lead the kind of lives they and their families are accustomed to.

    Reread the poll question.

    45% will consider leaving the medical profession or retiring early.

    Setting aside the fact that this obviously includes a large percentage who would not consider retiring now, but might consider it later, what percent of practicing physicians do you think could retire from full-time practice tomorrow and live off their savings? I'd say it's probably pretty significant.

    You guys seem to've missed an obvious point. If more people have health insurance, that's more money in the pockets of doctors. Even if they are in favor of the public option, it's meaningless.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    "This doesn't surprise me at all. So, the majority of the public wants a public option, the majority of doctors want a public option, but the right and the insurance industry doesn't?

    Why are we listening to them again?"

    Do you know that 30-40% of your current insured healthcare cost is administrative???
    Of course more government will do wonders with this

    There was no debate, nothing to hang a fact on. So I moved forward.
