Health Care Reform- the doctors

This piece in the NY Times reports on discontent among physicians. These are young men and women in the prime of their careers and they are talking about quitting. Congress is doing what it can to force them out by cutting reimbursement for Medicare. by 10.6% this year.

Over the next nine years Congress will slash Medicare payments to physicians by 37 percent, at the same time practice costs will increase at least 22 percent.

I think my suggestions for reform based on the French system are worth consideration but I see no interest.
