We need to find a way around this Obamacare. Maybe health co-ops or groups formed and doctors hired? You know the rich have ways around it. Hospital ships offshore?

” Maybe health co-ops or groups formed and doctors hired?”

I would be very happy to participate in such a venture, but it would require having attorneys look at all the restrictions the government has put in place before going forward. For instance, the government restricted physicians from owning health care facilities (it's OK, of course, for lawyers to own huge law firms). Thus, ownership would have to be non-physician (don't know if non-practicing physicians could be involved).

At this point, my passion for practicing medicine is at the lowest point ever in my life. I used to dream of getting into medical school when I was in college, and when I got that opportunity it was a dream come true. I don't take vacations, and have missed more holidays and weekends with family than I care to think about, but I'm part of the problem that needs to be reformed. Those who feel entitled to my services without payment are the Tiny Tims, and I am the Scrooge, even though I would never turn away anyone who really needed care because of a payment issue.

Oh well.
