To what extent are these people just sucking off the government teet? What would the health care industry look like without the hundreds of billions of dollars injected into it by medicare/medicaid? Would healthcare workers still be high paid and most lose their jobs since only those with insurance or wealthy could afford them? Or would things be more competitive so they would only make a fraction of what they do today? Does anyone actually believe the services these people provide are worth trillions and trillions of dollars? My taxes are too high to put up with this B/S.
