We all want really smart, really well trained doctors. We don't want all the smart kids becoming hedge fund managers, or lawyers, or professional golfers because they can't make money commensurate with 10-12 years of college, medical school, residency and the like, along with racking up $250K of college loans.
Therefore, we don't need for the health plan to be based on screwing doctors under Medicare to the tune of a half billion. This is a really, really bad idea.
There are a lot of dumb parts of the proposed legislation, but that is the dumbest.
Please let your Congressman know that assuming they can clip docs for $500 mil doesn't seem like such a hot idea...
