    The govt should subsidize medical school costs based on your GPA. the higher the gpa the less you pay.
    This would remove the very large student loan debts that most DR's graduate with and make their higher salaries unnecessary.
    It would also allow more to pursure medicine as a career thus promoting competition in the medical field.

    Lets turn medicine back in into what it should be and not an assembly line procedure where the average patient to customer time is 12-15 minutes.

    the money spent in Iraq would have educated how many DR's?

    Pell grants aplenty for all I say.

    You never know who will deside to be a dr or nurse.

    The best hope of competing with the international market is for us to be an educated society.

    Until I got to college I hated school and felt like I learned next to nothing in school.

    College was a whole new ballgame and I loved nearly every second of it and learned a shitload.

    Just hang on. All the doctors will be working for the government pretty shortly - most likely, someone will tell you in high school that you're going to become a doctor or a common laborer, etc. We will all belong to the government after tomorrow.

    Good grief, Charlie Brown!...Not that lame-assed yammering point, yet again!

    1) The money for Iraq was primarily borrowed from the Chinese...Are you supporting the continuance of that stupid policy?

    2) Your dimwitted manchild president has done next to nothing to get us the hell out of Iraq.

    Your continued re-re-re-repeating of a non sequitur jabbering point is lame-assed....Especially in light of the fact that your lame-assed matinee idol of a prez still is no closer to leaving Iraq than we were 14 months ago.

    Your OCD about Iraq is lame. And boring. We cannot change the past. Move on.
