If they cut my salary, the first loan I will choose to default on are my federal loans. I think they have to keep the salary high to attract people. How can you get bright people to sacrifice so much time, and such a large chunk of their lives for a pittance? Don't get me wrong, I love what I do. My job toes keep me away from home more than those of my non-medical friends. Some of whom make more than me. I think you would see reimbursements to specialists cut, and primary care would stay about the same. That's more or less what medicare did this year. G

I may be a jerk, but I'm a Jedi jerk like my father.
Some say I look like Buzz Lightyear....
