Regarding “Senate approves bill to push back doc pay cut”:
Let’s start over with healthcare reform. Physicians are a strategic resource for this nation and we need to encourage, not punish, our healthcare providers. I could write the same thing about pharmacists, nurses, imaging and lab services.
Our legislators, and our administrators, are paid too much for “leadership,” and we are not getting a fair return on our investment. It may be time to start choosing citizens to serve in government by a “draft”—one term, no second tour of duty, six years.
