The President of the United States had the following to say to help promote health reform at his press conference tonight:
Right now, doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that's out there. So if they're looking and you come in and you've got a bad sore throat or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, "You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid's tonsils out."
And when a town has only one lawyer, he/she starves, but when a second moves in, they each get rich.
Eventually, Cheetum Cummin & Goin gets formed to handle all the business.
