Interesting. So what are you going to do when, under a socialized medical care system, the government puts a salary cap on physicians and you make the same salary as a postal worker? Or are you not willing to accept that part of socialized medicine?

I am a physician as well and I am well-versed with the problems with private insurance... Some politician, not-to-long-ago, said he would like to introduce legislation in which 80% of the premiums MUST be used to pay for patient treatments and 20% can be taken for overhead and profit... it was a great idea and I have not heard from him ever since... nobody wants to reform the health insurance racket... and that is sad... 2.2 Trillion and the insurance industry is still playing its games...
