What?? Are these bitter Repubs still trying to debate ObamaCare???
Sorry fellas, but that debate ended with the SCOTUS' decision. End of debate. And just to refresh your memory, Bill Frist, former PHYSICIAN and Republican Senate Majority Leader, says ObamaCare is necessary. A Republican who was once a doctors himself....Think he might know a bit more than you clowns about what's right and wrong with the old system??? http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81275.html
Frist: "As a doctor, I strongly believe that people without health insurance die sooner,” Frist wrote. People can go to the emergency room, but they delay treatment of health concerns, skip preventive care and when they finally seek treatment, their condition is worse and more costly, he continued. “State exchanges are the solution. They represent the federalist ideal of states as ‘laboratories for democracy.’”
As far as the OP's point, I know a few doctors pretty well. In fact, I have some in my family. 100% OF THEM PLAN TO RETIRE EARLY!! So your 60% number is low, but it has nothing to do with ObamaCare. 100% of them plan to retire early because they'll make shit-loads of money between the ages of 35 and 55. More money than they need to retire on. So why the fuck would they work any longer than they have to???
My own sister-in-law is pulling in close to half a mill per year, and she's a fucking a DENTIST (oh, and she only works 4 days a week). If a dentist is pulling in that kind of money at the age of 40, why couldn't a doctor retire early?? Sure they can, and good for them.
Dumb thread OP.
