Let's make something clear. These fifteen doctors are probably in a very high or "rich" tax bracket. These are the individuals many in this country (including our presedent) want to assume the tax burden of our governments out of control spending. These fine fifteen Americans have given (yes, given) money from their own "profits" to better services provided to patients. This is how capitolism works.

Let's say these fifteen generous doctors had their taxes increased to a point where this $250.000 was generated (by the same fifteen) for the sole purpose of this project. How much of this $250,000 would actually make it directly to the project? Approximately 30%. Yes,$75,000 would go to the project. The remainder of the $179,000 would have been wasted on bureaucratic waste.

Increasing taxes on the higher level wage earners along with the "rich" 9this includes corporations) does nothing more than allowing our government to waste more on overpriced projects. If we lower the tax burden on the "wealthy" and cut government spending by eliminating "red tape" within projects (mostly created by unnecessary government jobs), we’d hear a lot more of these stories.

Americans are good hearted people who truly want to help each other. The problem is that America has taxed its hard working citizens to a point where they can't both live the lifestyle they earn and give to others. Many hard working wage earners are at the point where they feel they pay so much tax (which is ultimately wasted)for "social" programs that they are working for nothing.

From myself personally, I say Thank You to these fifteen doctors. You have gone far beyond that which is expected. You have truly shown what America is capable should she be left to manage herself.

Nice post 'No Place to Hide', I understand your way of thinking and believe it is the way America was first run. We have been going down hill ever since "they" started taxing us. I think something similar need to be the way colleges are run.

Wow for 15 docs giving about little over 15 grand each (nice write off).I think they should donate the $$$ to the humane society to rebuild or find a suitable place for the animals.I am sure enloe can get by without the $$$.

I did a project for a nero surgeon who live above clai-park years back. I mean him and his wife live in a really nice home right off the 15th hole.He told he needed to spend of ton of $$$$. All thru the project him bitched and moaned on how much he has to pay for liability ins and monies he donates to orgs (for write offs). Unreal these guys bank the big bucks live in million dollar homes and still bitch on how they getting robbed on taxes and all mentioned above
