The overall trend has been downward for decades no matter what policy was enacted. Likely taxes will go up for Medicare for all so I suppose take home pay will be less for doctors in that scenario

That AI was going to take over in radiology so within the time I would complete residency, salary would be half. The ortho bubble was going to burst. Everyone was taking a pay cut with Obamacare and it is better to drive for UPS, specialties were going to drop significantly causing no one to do them and primary care is going to be overwhelming, psychiatry is the new ortho. Some may be moving in that direction or may not be too far off, but some are still getting the same future doom and gloom.
