Osama care will make it worse. Who will want to be a doctor and not make any money at it.

Better yet, who in their right mind would go a half million to a million dollars in debt for school with no viable way to ever pay it back? I have two friends who are physicians who are thinking hard about retiring instead of working under barrycare for the next 15 years.

One of obama's ideas is to take 200 crack wh_ores from each of the country's ghettos and deem them witch doctors, claiming they are part of his stimulus programs. Also, since everything is gay gay gay with these deviants the half of the conscripted crack wh_ores will be males.

Looks like I will be going to a vet rather than an HIV infected fist-a-thon participant

You sir, are a genius. No way in hell will you find a NAPA near a vet's clinic. They're afraid to be mistake as rabid.

We have too many doctors. What we need are more medical case managers to prevent doctors from providing unnecessary treatments and tests. There are many more doctors in the top 1% than there are lawyers. Last year there were a record number of applicants for US medical school enrollment.

I have heard people complain about how much a doctor charges for everything from office visits to surgerys that save lives and could never figure out why. People watch all the different sports and see how much the pro players are paid---outlandish with no cost for years of college and yet they don't complain about their pay or how much a fan pays to get into a game---Crazy! I'd rather pay a doctor to help me have better health or save my life --surgeons deserve the money the athletes are making!
