"About those doctors? That doesn't seem to be the general physician consensus."
Oh, forgot this part.
I can only speak for our physicians who I generally think are good people... but their only points seemed to be:
1) Their profession is dead.
2) Its horrible being a MD.
3) They need a pay raise, not a pay decrease.
4) What we really need is tort reform (aka: Not letting them get sued.)
Actually... one doc was for the bill. He's a Euro-hippie.
As for the final point about Tort Reform. I gotta say, that I agree with. If MDs didn't have to pay so much money for malpractice insurance
, if device makers didn't have to suffer similar fates.... if we didn't have to practice so much defensive medicine.
Oh... is that a dream?
