    Can you imagine a business being run where the prices are being fixed as what the customers want to pay, and not what it cost them to provide the service, or manufacture the product.

    I wonder how many doctors there are going to be if they keep this up.

    Justice Department declares war on doctors - CSMonitor.com

    This means the government believes it has the right to force doctors to accept Medicare/Medicaid and/ or insurance pricing, and that it will work to send anyone who tries to opt out of accepting it to prison. This is another example of a badly written law being applied to a situation it should not cover in the first place.

    I know, but it still surprises me at times.

    As it does me. Doctors...and what they are having to endure is a microcosm of what the rest of us are enduring. It cuts across ALL lines of the private sector as the Government Sector (PUBLIC)...gets larger...and the Public employee make MORE than the Private one.

    It's BY DESIGN...and for nefarious reasons.

    You're right. Obama hates doctors, hates you and wants us all to die. What's more likely....that or you're a lunatic who will find something wrong with EVERYTHING that Obama does.

    Oh and nice selective editing on your Thread title. I noticed that article said The Justice Department declares war, yet magically it became "Obama declares war in your thread title...". Slick.

    Most Doctors are overpaid for the services they provided. Traeting a haed cold, or a sore throat certianly isnt worth 125.00 - anyone who thinks it is is absolutely nuts or a life long member of the GOP.

    The Doctors should be overjoyed in that an additional 40 million Americans will be forced to have insurance and under the current US structure the Doctors will be able to milk the system even more than they now do.

    Why are they overpaid?

    Would you suddenly be overjoyed if you suddenly got 40 million more customers forced down your throat, then told that you would have to do all the extra work involved in serving those customers at the same pay you are getting now, even though you will be working more hours? Wouldn't that make you think you were being exploited, and demand that the government force your boss to give you a paid vacation.

    Don't bother to answer, I know what it is.
