Default Re: Lessons in Healthcare 101

I bet you didn't know that there is legislation currently pending that will decrease physician reimbursements by 21.5% (that's right TWENTY-ONE percent. How many of you could take a cut in pay by 21%? Me either. But that's a discussion for another thread...)
You're greedy and get paid too much. You should have to spend 11 years becoming a doctor and deal with the constant stress of liability and med mal insurance jsut to get paid less than a postal worker like "good' countries would do.

ETA: You should get one of the doctors in Congress to introduce an amendment to that legislation that cuts Congressional pay by the same amount as doctor pay. It'll get voted down but anyone trying to cut doctor pay will embarrass themselves and expose themselves as hypocrites.
