    More news from the exciting world of healthcare reform

    So CMS in response to provisions allowed under healthcare reform is cutting 20 to 30 % from what they reimburse to Physicians, Hospitals and other healthcare providers. and these cuts are retroactive to June to August of 2012! So tell me what possible motivation could a doctor who has to pay for liability insurance, staff salaries and costs to keep an office running have to continue practicing medicine?

    So healthcare will be essentially free but there will be no doctors to treat patients and nurses salaries are expected to freeze or even be reduced by as much as 20 to 30% as well.

    I keep saying we need to push to defund this turkey

    Just a side note: Lawyers out-number MD's out this way. Wonder why?!
