I’m not an expert on health-care policy, but there appears to be a serious inconsistency here. The Left’s education mantra is “pay teachers more to attract the best and brightest,” while its health-care mantra seems to be “pay doctors as little as we can get away with.” Do doctors not respond to financial incentives as teachers do? Underpaying for either occupation will have consequences.
The broader point here is that if paying below-market prices for education would be bad, what does that say about the “savings” generated by single-payer health care that the Left touts?
It says that teachers are important to the Crust in indoctrinating the new generation of slaves, while doctors are not.
