    You know what would be wonderful to see right now? A joining, a banding together of the nurses and the doc's to stand together and fight this war against the bean counters and the ding-dong's who don't seem to get it. The powers that be do not take this seriously, the politicians are too busy debating, forming committees...etc...ENOUGH!!!! Let's take it to the streets and let the people know the ramifications of these stupid regulations/laws/bills/calculations.
