This may sound nuts now but if this healthscare bill becomes law they are predicting a huge shortage of doctors on top of the shortage that would occur anyway due to aging baby boomers. This makes me think that if the federal government can force people ,via a tax penalty, to buy a product or service then why couldn't it force college bound students to become doctors instead maybe the engineer they planned on. The feds could simply refuse student aid if the student didn't comply or a tax penalty just like the insurance mandate. Yep I agree it sounds crazy but then I thought forcing us to buy a service such as health insurance was crazy too but it sure as hell looks like it going to be a reallity. Right now I wouldn't put anything past those fuckers.

Sounds like the weakest totalitarian state ever.
"They...they forced me into the world's most respected profession!"
"Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us -- and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along." -Carl Sagan

Now where is that "Alternate Awards" at again....
You are the one person in this world who will live according to the choices you make. Live life like there is a tomorrow.
Of course it won't be the world's most respected profession when they are just government bureacrats like the fat, mean-tempered, lazy women who work at the driver's license bureau.
If pure market forces can't lure people into the profession and the govt. has to force or compel people into it then that makes me question the kind the health care I might get from such a doctor.
Eh, teachers get special tuition help. Is that bad?
First they came for the mimes, and I did not speak out, because I was a mime.
"Every government interference in the economy consists of giving an unearned benefit, extorted by force, to some men at the expense of others."
FORCE, I don't see how anyone can force another to be a doctor but at the same time I don't see why anyone would want to be a doctor under any form of socialized medicine or socialized health care. Its basic risk vs reward and I highly doubt even the best of us [humanity] can stand our shit.
