Without knowing the exact wording (I was working on Sunday)... Republican Minority leader said this was "Armageddon".
Well... we're all still here. No end of the world.
Of course... today it was the hot topic. The docs are the most verbal... 95% hate the bill. Actually... they pretty much seem to think its the end of the world too... or as I literally heard "The career path as a physician is dead."
Really? A little too far...? But all the docs agreed.
As for the nurses, less than 5% had an opinion. They just didn't seem to know a thing about it... or care.
How can you not care? Its our profession, our passion. And it will vastly effect our field... not today of course, but eventually.
The best part of today. Two different patients told me that Government was taking over their lives and couldn't do anything right. However, at the same time... they both were satisfied with their Medicare. =)
Anyhoot. I just wanted to see if anyone else has strong thoughts on this subject. Or any neat stories. Please, if you dare disagree with me... please post here, and I'll convince you my way. =P~

And just what is "your way"? I read your post twice and didn't see anything about your opinion, only what you'd observed in others.
About those doctors? That doesn't seem to be the general physician consensus. The AMA had input into creating the bill and is in favor of it. They don't come out in favor of much of anything, especially something that they perceive might be detrimental to MD income, so that's quite a big deal.
