    Retire early? Maybe. Maybe not. But not go to medical school? I doubt that. Not any serious number, and not something not matched by those who decide to go because of incentives.

    So helping people means they work for nothing right?

    I had a boss once tell me that if I were in it for the money, I was in the wrong profession (paramedic).

    My niece is a liberal and a political junky and she thinks it's wrong to charge people money for health care. She wants to reduce doctor salaries but she thinks that teacher salaries need to be increased by the government, even though they already make more than what the market dictates.

    This deserves to be in Breaking News in my opinion because it is obviously topical, the results are startling, and the New England Journal of Medicine isn't exactly a politically-charged blog site. There are many references to this article today, but I thought it best to post the survey itself.

    Will your personal doctor give up his/her practice if Obamacare passes?

    Obama is sickening. He pulls a bunch of white coats up on stage as if the medical community is completely "behind him" on this. Obviously, they are not.

    America, this is what the radical left looks like. Like much?
    Sure they are!

    They're all going to become greeters at WallyWorld!

    Good grief...

    ... some people will believe anything!

    Where do cons get the notion that working for a non-profit means working for free?

    Nobody is advocating that they take a poverty vow similar to monks...LOL

    What about doctors and nurses? Before you answer, you do realize that doctor salaries are low, relative to their education level, right?

    If they do, I strongly suggest they give up the 8 week summer vacation.
