Art, much of the interference that you claim limits your access to doctors is due to State governments, not the Feds - missah

Thank you, I'll accept that but my point still stands. The truth is that I am for a single payer system and think it makes sense. I realize that we can't just allow anyone to hang up a shingle and call themselves a doctor and sell anything they want.

However because life is like that and we live in a society with rules and regulations and humans have feelings and mourn those we love after they are gone I feel like society has the obligation to see after those who are less fortunate.

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.
