    what does "work" mean ?

    We should reduce your income by the same percentage you would have your physicians income reduced, in order to accommodate your desires.
    If an asset that the government can get for nothing capital is essential to producing assets that command prices consumption goods then you would be wise to search for a sleight-of-hand operation.

    wanting your neighbors to subsidize your care. Stalin would be proud and Orwell would write a book about you and the society you would help create.

    Are you the judge of what wealth is appropriate for a physician ?
    Do you have some problem with a physician making what a good electrician or plumber can make ?
    Do you have some problem with the jobs the physician creates in his community ?

    I know, you just want something for free and you think you can use the government to get it for you.

    You don't want to subsidize healthcare for a few billion, yet you subsidize the Military Industrial Complex for TRILLIONS and don't bat an eye? That's called "cognitive dissonance."

    "In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, performs an action that is contradictory to one or more beliefs, ideas, or values, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values."

    yep, and posted on the fourth and the hell with all those who Died so they can spew it.
    now look at us. 47% of the people are living on the backs of the worker/taxpayers in this country. they just refuse to believe that eventually they will run out of "other" peoples money. Look at Venezuela. .

    You do understand that physicians already make LOTS of money off of socialism in the US right? Medicare, medicaid, the VA, not to mention all the government workers, contractors and subsidiaries that exist off the backs of the taxpayers. Or have you not been paying attention?

    I don't advocate subsidizing shit. I openly and constantly condemn the actions of the US government, it's waisting of trillions of dollars and it's constant support of the MIC which includes the FED and the Wall Street banks.
    You on the other hand just advocated a government controlled solution to your needs, and rejected a true free market approach, void of government meddling.

    The cognitive dissonance is your baby my friend.

    I advocate their elimination and a return to free market principles.
    You on the other hand just advocated more government. Good show.
