I think the idea that the one million in medical costs would mean laying off teachers is too simplistic. Most people think money controls people, but
people control money. As long as people are working, and working to the degree they can, that's when you'll get the best products/outcomes and most
wealth. It just seems odd to think that we should have the doctor in this case, have no work, maybe an extra 2 hour break not saving a life
(government saves money) and then we can hire more teachers. If he has the ability to work and save a life, he should. That's just increasing our
national productivity. His logic almost dictates that somehow the Doctors and other healthcare workers could somehow morph and become teachers at the
drop of a hat. Money can shift like that, people can't.
If he wants to start talking about saving teaching jobs, he should talk about the teachers that sexually harass students and get put into "rubber
rooms" for years doing nothing and getting paid while the school system investigates. That is not productive.
