How would the new health care bill affect Orthopedic/Spine surgeons? Income, hours, etc.

Did the orthopedic surgeons make large monetary contributions to key Democratic leaders? No? Then you're in trouble.

Ortho/spine pretty much has nowhere to go but down.

Of course, even if their incomes were slashed 50% (not that I'm suggesting this is likely), most would still be earning in the neighborhood of half a million dollars per year. That's still a pretty nice neighborhood.
