I don't know about you guys, but I have very little idea about the health care reform bill that congress is planning to vote on.

Does the bill that congress is planning to vote on, cut doctor's salaries? If so, by how much? (I am not going to into medicine for the money, but I am just curious) Does it decrease the salary of doctor's who are not primary care physicians? Does it increase the salaries of primary care doctors?

Is there a public option? I thought that the public option was dead?

Will there be more paper work for doctors?

Any help in clarifying these questions will be greatly appreciated.

Yes.

105%

Two thousand dollars, and that's my final offer.

Seventy bucks.

Thankfully, the pubic option remains very much alive.

Just one page. And two more places to initial.

Who knows... most hope that it won't but Obama's got it out for doctors for some ridiculous reason.

Eh I believe that it is dead but there's a requirement to buy insurance now.
Will there be more paper work for doctors?
Most likely, primary care physicians will be fined for referring people to specialists so I'm thinking there will be increased red tape in this.
Any help in clarifying these questions will be greatly appreciated.
In the end no one knows how this will turn out. All I can say is, be sure to choose a major which functions as a back up incase medical school becomes undesirable.

I can't say the same for Parts Unknown, except that she felt like trolling for some reason?:thumbdown:

I would like to know where you found this little gem.
If only I could remember, there was a source about 1 month ago on a massive debate thread. Sorry I can't provide the source, but I know its a topic everyone talked about for a while.
