The statement you made shows you must live under a rock and not be a working member of society if you don't think people care or are being affected by the economy. I for one am glad there is a move to keep doctors in rural areas. With the current healthcare laws being put in place the people with private insurance are paying at least 14% more for their policies the perscription co-pay is higher and the monies for the elderly are dropping. Also if you are lucky enough to have a company healthplan the government will consider that perk part of your salary and you will see a larger decrease in your income. Doctors sacrifice many years of their young life to work in their chosen field. The problem we all have is the lawyers who are wreaking havoc on us all while raking in the cash. I would like to see a law where we can sue a lawyer for not doing their job. But since many of our representatives are lawyers that will surely not happen.

lol!
Boy, I certainly agree with the lawyer part!
The problem is lawyers already don't want to HAVE to go against one another!
We would have to get the doctors as counsel, do it oursellves or use that Tulane thing-a-ma-jig.

We would have to get a lawyer to represent us against another lawyer?
Ain't that what's goin' on now? Lol
