re: Trump on Healthcare: "Who Knew?" - the808bass
You think doctor's compensation is high so that they can pay for medical school? I'm not so sure that it's really "high." You can go to medical school for approximately the cost of a nice first home. Is that "too high?"...

[quote]There are certainly benefits and costs to consider for any type of healthcare system.
