    None, that's my point, and they are more collectivist than HCR. I was asked why I support social programs. I support them for the same reasons the majority of Americans do and both the Republican and Democrat representatives of the people, because they help create and maintain a middle class in this country.

    Great, now you have supported legislation that does nothing to improve quality, lower costs, and improve the infrastructure but minions like you support the shift to the left. Let's see if the country agrees with you in November.

It was a semi-random sample of only their clients, we have no idea of knowing whether their clients are typical of doctors in general, or even of physicians in general (correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't physicians just one branch of medicine? As opposed to surgeons, phychiatrists etc?). The respondents were also self-selecting.

    Whilst the findings might be interesting, as an indicator of general, across-the-board medical opinion, it doesn't count for as much as the OP is hoping, or hyping.

    Please provide a link to the study or survey that states this is why they are there. You cannot.

    Even if they did, it is no reason for the government to treat them like slave labor, a cog in the socialist machine.

    Doctors will become more scarce with the advent Obamacare. Who, with half a brain, would want to go to school for years, at huge expense, only to be dictated to by folks like Pelosi, Reid, Waxman, Kennedy, Clinton, Schumer, Durbin, Kerry, and Obama?

    I can see it now, across households in America.

    Son: Dad, I'm thinking about becoming a medical doctor.
    Dad: Ahh, noble son, noble... but...
    Son: But what?
    Dad: Would you like being told what to do all day, every day by your step Mom?
    Son: No.
    Dad: Well son, think about a lifetime of servitude to a bunch of people who don't know you, don't care about you and think you are their property in a redistribution scheme. And you are the one who will give in order to fulfill their scheme.
    Son: What do you mean?
    Dad: The business isn't yours son. You are a ward of the state. They tell you what you make, how much you can work, and what services you can provide at what price.
    Son: Hmmmmm...
    Dad: Think of it as being a glorified prisoner... and such systems only get worse with time. They start with a bad premise, and they continually try to, they think they are trying to right the ship, but matters only get worse. Just look at Europe.


    The wealthy will be able to escape the decay of the system, just as Kanuckistani's with money came south of the border to get real care instead of real long waiting lists. I wonder how the Commi Organizer and his future cronies will deal with that?

    Sozialist Kare will be repealed... Obama keeps piling on and flinging around the socialist dung every day. Then tells us to make **** sandwiches and enjoy it. The entire nation has been splattered with his ****, some of course enjoy it thoroughly, but the stench and aggravation will provide a reminder until November.

    Um, "Obamacare" isn't socialist. It's barely even liberal. It uses an individual mandate. You know, like Romney and Mass. kind of individual mandate. And while there are certainly people who will pay more under this healthcare bill, doctors do not suffer under the health care bill any more than anybody else who makes a well-above-average income. Medicare and medicaid reimbursement actually increased.

    Oh my. How the schools fail society. Nary enough analytical thought to make it through the day.

    Social Security works and isn't socialist. ROTFLMAO...
    The schools work and are failing... thanks to... socialists.
    Medicaid and Medicare, more socialism and absolute failures.
