Health care "solutions"

Ny Times from yesterday. The ridiculousness of the article is astounding. American doctors make more than doctors in other countries. Ergo, the health care crisis in the United States derives from exorbitant doctor salaries. Seems obvious, eh?

Never mind the fact that CEO's of major HMO's routinely pull down seven figure incomes. Never mind that health care is in the domain of private enterprise, completely funded and driven by private businesses. Never mind that doctors graduate from residency with close to $150,000 in student loans. It's simple. All we have to do is chop MD salaries from $200,000 to $90,000 and the solution will present itself.......
