    This seems to conflict with the idea that doctors would quit rather than work for the governement. Not to draw any conclusions but definitely thought provoking.

    Doctors are quitting private practice to work in prisons - Dec. 23, 2009

    Now if only we law abiding citizens could get equal care. But that would be against Republican principles.

    probably more cost efficient for us than making medicare/medicaid payments. to the same practitioners...and probably better for them because they don't have to wait to get paid and go through all of the paperwork.

    if they get to the point where med school is paid for in exchange for service (both drs and nurses could use this) maybe not a bad thing.

    Leave to the socialist wingnuts to let the fact that doctors treating PRISONERS, who are wards of the state and don't earn a living, go flying right over their peanut heads.

    I don't know about wingnutters like you, but I've lived very well off of the benefits of capitalism. But I'm smart enough to know when something needs to be modified to be cost efficient and appropriately delivered to the people who need it.

    So we can treat prisoners, but not the people who work for a living? Of course, I would expect Dooodeee.... to protect the priveleges of his peer group.

    In our nation, a person that has worked all his life, and been laid off, thereby losing his health care, has a 40% greater chance of dying in the emergency room than someone that still has there health insurance.

    Now, look at what is happening in industry. More and more companies are either reducing the health care benefits for new hires, or not offering them at all.

    Time for the American Citizen to take matters into their own hands and gaurntee health care for all.
