You're working a lot harder because you have to, and realizing that with inflation (again politicians) $300,000 is not as much as it used to be.

    And you think that a musician should make more than someone who saves lives? I am shocked! :-)
    I disagree with the premise. CD, Ticket, Merchandise sales vs service rendered. It's not the same. No one has to buy a CD, go to a concert or buy a T-Shirt, but people eventually end up needing medical care. If the sales out-weight the service provider's income, that's just apples to oranges.

    Doctors don’t enter the workforce until they’re 30 to 33.

    Meaning, you’ve been working for 10+ years (and making money) by the time they make their first cent.

    Secondly, doctors leave college with an average debt of close to $200,000.

    They have a mortgage sized debt, just in student loans!

    Third, doctors have to pay out of their own pocket for liability and malpractice insurance.

    Fourth, doctors that aren’t employed by a massive hospital have to pay all their own benefits.

    The reason Doctors make so much is because they have a special skill AND they have so many more expenses than you do.
    Yes, yes and yes. Bitching about doctors and what they earn is plain old fashioned dumb.

    Let's cap the earnings on sports and movie stars too while we're at it. Right? LOL

    Yes, they go into school knowing they will get paid $300k.

    That's why they do it.

    Duh...

    The fact is, you've taken the point I was making and completely skewed it into something completely different.
    No, I haven't.

    You've just been repeatedly schooled.

    1) You say we can afford medicare-for-all, but can't tell me on viable way to pay for it.

    2) You say that doctors make too much, but when you look at the expenses of that career, they make a very meager wage.

    3) You say that it should be "you get sick, you get treated" - But that's not how it works in the Countries that do EXACTLY what you want US to do.

    You have been repeatedly smacked around.

    Health insurance companies have been stealing our cash and make a "PROFIT" from it.
    End of story does not and should not be that way.
    Remember it is not long ago they were kicking sick people off their plans and refusing coverage to those with pre-existing conditions.

    Think about it.. For profit is a bad bad very bad idea.

    I currently pay 14k a year to cover my wife and myself with a high deductible so yeah far as I am concerned I am paying for it and the extremely wealthy get the tax breaks what Bullshit.

    What do you suggest as an alternative solution?

    And you believe that a healthcare system owned and regulated by the very politicians who are unable to create a budget, would be able to make it cheaper and better?

    If what you say is true, what were paying before obamacare?

    Yes, it's always the fault of the extremely wealthy.
