Doctors make gobs more money than regular folks. The most I ever made was $28,000/year. I'm pretty sure most doctors make well in excess of $100,000/year which sounds pretty hoiety-toiety to me!
So my point is that if doctors end up taking a pay cut because of a bit of socialized medicine well life is tough and I've been living on $900/month for the last few years so if I can do it so can they.
But you could have applied yourself and spent several years going to medical school and been able to make more than $28K. Why would you think it is acceptable to force someone who worked their butts off to take a pay cut just because others weren't willing to work hard?
