he knows he is going to get screwed... Good for him. What People don't understand in most socialized countries, Medical Doctors go to school for free. So they are not putting themselves is 200,000 dollars worth of debt. So how are we going to get Quality doctors, when no body is going to want to go to school for a PHD, If they can never pay it off.
My fiance is a Lawyer and she is dirt poor, Doctors and Lawyers have years and years of mass debt to pay off, how are they going to pay for school, In a government run system? when They are not making nearly as much money.

Can't tell if this was sarcasm or not, but if you really believe politics should have nothing to do with healthcare...
Then there shouldn't have been a healthcare bill passed by the government in the first place, should there?

Maybe if we would all be so brave we could rein in our corrupt officials instead of panting like little house puppies begging for our next treat.
