My point is not that I deserve or expect a couple million a year, but how absurd it is that the 300th best basketball player does get that. I negotiate my salary on a yearly basis. The person on the other side of the table wants to pay me as little as he can get away with. I want to make as much as possible. Eventually we either shake hands, or I look for anew job. I don't think of myself as greedy. I think of myself as a hard working, valuable asset to my hospital and its patients. Thankfully, my boss agrees.



I have much respect for you, I read your posts and have learned much from you
I believe you to be a reasonable man. Your above post illustrates a point
Just as you look to the 300th basketball player so too does the landscaper
look to you.

You probably wouldn't have to worry about high taxes if it was up to me, and it's not because I would require anyone to pay you less.

I believe in consumer advocacy but that's generally because I want people to know they are not being deceived, and not being told false information. If you want to pay for cheaper product with known risks you should be able to.

This is what should happen when someone is in the hospital for surgery.

"Sir, you're expected to be a relatively uncomplicated surgery patient. So here's some options.

1st /tier for anesthesia, We offer SOOPOO. Lots of experience, some of the best medical training background, and is experienced, if rare complications occur.

2nd tier we have POORSOOO. POORSOO has limited background but has done over 300 operations. He didn't even finish medical school. But he will cost you only 10% of SOOPOOS' asking price. You can ask for SOOPOO to be on call, but that will add an additional 30 percent.

Please read over the form and consider the options and sign your release form.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

That's me now, with Medicare and Blue
Cross supplemental. We pay $400 a
month for this, but that doesn't get
you jack these days.

The government needs to help Dr's want to continue being Dr's. On Petro's health care plan, the gov. will pick up all insurance for Drs. Especially the liability insurance, gratis.

One of the few really good neck and back clinics in Anchorage quit doing necks early last decade. Their insurance, for necks only, went to 40k per month, so they quit doing necks. They had the skills, the equip, the facility, and had helped many people with DDD, but they stopped because of the insurance. That is bullshit.

I think family physicians are front line heroes, [ sorry, anesthesiologists aren't far behind]. They take so much risk, and really don't make enough money to support private practice, after they are gouged by insurance company's. The gov finds it's way to help all the indigents from around the world, and let the Dr's survive on their own, that's crazy. I want my Dr. to be able to afford the most expensive car in town, or two or three. Like you say, minimum for a guy that can throw hoops is 300k. I want my Dr. making at least twice that, take home, and free insurance.

People don't even notice how much of their time Dr's give away, after they do their jobs. Dr's donate a lot, a whole lot. And many of their lives suffer for it.

Peer reviewed after major **&*ups, but generally, let Dr's keep what they make, and not have to worry about being sued by every ambulance chaser with a license.
