    You clearly do not know human behavior if you can't see how working for no profit also reduces the desire to excel in a given field. If all doctors worked for the same pay, it's a guarantee it will also reduce the number of 'best of the best' doctors in the overall health care system.

    Human behavior dictates that if given incentives to work, typically you will work harder to excel and earn the rewards that go along with it. It's called the Power of Free Enterprise, and the Pilgrims first learned about this after settling in the New World.

    If you remove the incentives it also removes the desire to excel. Why? If no matter how hard you work or what you do, you earn the same wage as every other doctor. You can begin to imagine the medical field will slowly decline as it gets worse and worse over time, and the it will plateau as average quality health care. That's a fact; socialism has never worked in the history of its existence. And it won't work this time, either.

    We'll keep that in mind should anyone try socialism here.

    If I was talking about anything in your post, you might have a point, but I wasn't, so you don't.

    You seem to not understand the difference between working FOR profit and working for A NON-PROFIT.

    You might start with the post that prompted my response.
