Health care whiners
The talking point that the doctors and nurses are going to leave the medical field now that socialized medicine is here (its hardly socialized since the private companies are still allowed to make unregulated profits). I have one thing to say to these professionals, good luck in your new career. Come on you're really going to quit and then do what? How many other professions can you go into and make even close to the average doctor salary of $150,000? Not many. You could maybe find work in the sciences, average salary ~$50,000, but there aren't any positions. You could maybe become a construction laborer $10-20/hr., but again no jobs. You could maybe work in manufacturing $8-20/hr., again no jobs. You could leave the country and practice medicine in a country without a socialized medical system like Somalia.
