So why are professionals leaving their practices to drive trucks ?

You assume a fact not in evidence. I know of no professionals who have decided to abandon their careers in order to be truck drivers. If these folks actually exist, you left off the two most likely causes: Brain trauma or tumors. Or perhaps they wanted a job without the responsibility of doing all of the thinking for you saps.

Cook Medical shelves Midwest expansion plans
J.K. WallJuly 27, 2012

Cook Medical Inc. had been planning to open five new manufacturing plants over the next five years in small communities around the Midwest, including Indiana, but has shelved those plans because of the hit it will take from a new U.S. tax on medical devices.

The Bloomington-based medical device maker estimates it will pay between $20 million and $30 million once the tax takes effect in January, Pete Yonkman, executive vice president of strategic business units at Cook Medical, said this week.

The 2.3-percent tax on sales of all medical devices was created as part of President Obama’s 2010 health reform law to help pay for its expansion of health insurance coverage to as many as 30 million more Americans. The tax is projected to raised about $2.9 billion per year.

“It is a challenge for us, no doubt,” Yonkman said in an interview after the IBJ Life Sciences Power Breakfast on Wednesday (see video below).“We have fewer resources to be able to spend on those kinds of projects.”

He referred to a new plant Cook opened recently in Canton, Ill., renovating a plant abandoned by the International Harvester Corp. Cook has invested $30 million in the plant, which will eventually employ 300 or more people, Yonkman said.

Canton is the hometown of the late Bill Cook, who founded Cook Medical.

“We had hoped, as we get bigger, that that would be our model for expansion,” Yonkman said.“To take these small manufacturing facilities and bring them to these communities, that had been hard hit by jobs leaving, because the work ethic is amazing and the people are really supportive and excited.”

Yonkman said Cook had planned to open a similar facility each year for the next five years.

“So, for us,” he added,“that’s one less facility per year that we’re going to be able to use because of the tax.”

Thank you John F Kerry.
I guess this is that typical condescending attitude of the left who in reality, looks down on blue collar workers. You think somebody needs to be a doctor or lawyer to discuss political issues; to make "cogent analysis" of stories or reports? It may surprise you, but one does not need to be a rocket scientist in order to understand the English language. Furthermore, it's conservatives who have a far better understanding of the English language than the left who frequently Clintonizes words and sentences. People on the left don't think for themselves. They rely on their politicians to think for them.
You sit there behind your internet throne acting as if you are something that you're not; criticizing everybody else while embarrassed to say who you are or what you do that makes you so superior.
Here's what makes me superior to everyone other than Duke in these discussions.
1) My IQ
2) I can read above my grade level.
3) I have a Juris Doctorate that was the result of years of study to understand how to read and understand the technical language that makes up the law.
4) I have studied the history of the development of judicial analysis so that I know how judges and justices are supposed to interpret legislation and stare decisis.
5) I am able to think in the abstract.
5) I use all of that ability and training by reading various sources of information, analyzing it, and forming conclusions of my own.

I exist in the "real world" too, chief. I'm just much better equipped, educated and trained than you to do so.

The other difference between you and I, is that I understand that I am not qualified to drive your truck nor to do brain surgery and I have the sense not to try.

There will always be work in my field. Even with the lousy economy today, companies are still short handed. That's why I chose this career in the first place. I didn't want to end up like some whiny liberal complaining that politicians owe me money because I got into a field where there is no work, or decided not pursue a career or trade. Just do mindless work like screwing nuts onto bolts that a company can pay a primate to do.
The major problem in transportation IS the federal government. Every year they make it harder and harder for us to make a living. It's even worse for the company owners who struggle to survive these ridiculous federal regulations. I can't tell you how many professional drivers are looking to get out of it for that reason alone. They love driving, but are sick of the federal government BS. To be honest, if I would have known it would get this bad when I first started, I probably would have chose another profession myself. I'm sick of the federal government. And this is why there will always be a need for good professional drivers. Government ruins everything for everybody.
I liked when the federal government decided you guys weren't allowed to drive your trucks all hopped up on speed so that you would stop killing so many of the rest of us.

Gee. I thought these corporations just were going to pass these taxes on to consumers.

Corporate profits and, more importantly, cash on hand is as high as it has ever been. The 1% is hording its cash, with or without the ACA. Why not make the country a better and more humane place?

No, corporations do not sit on cash like your government. Corporations invest profit. This is just one story out of the many to come; job creators not creating jobs because of Commie Care. In fact, when it was first passed, the medical device giant Invicare's CEO stated if this is not stopped, he may be forced to close down and move out of the country. Hundreds more jobs lost right there.

Yes, under normal circumstance, corporations pass their expenses to customers. In this case, the customers are hospitals who will also be burdened with Commie Care. There is only so much you can charge for services. It's one of the reasons doctors will be leaving their practice starting next year unless Romney is voted in and ends this nonsense once and for all.

You need to do some research on the 1% sitting on cash.

They invest profit? I thought they trickled it down on the little guy? Which is it?

BTW, if we had a single payer system, it would alleviate the burden on the corporations you are so worried about.

Yes, depending on where you go. If you don't mind driving over the road, some companies will train you and get you your license. You won't make a lot of money at first because insurance on new drivers is kind of high. But after the first two years of safe driving, rates come back down and they can pay you more money.

My 3/4 ton PU gets around 10-11 mpg. What ever price I buy gas for, I move the decimal point over one spot and that's my fuel costs per mile. ie: gas at $ 3.50 costs 32-35 cents per mile. Then actual vehicle maintenance costs probably push another 18 or 21 cents per mile. I can't imagine what the costs per mile of a big rig sans the driver overhead ?
