Dec. 13 (Bloomberg) -- As Democrats and Republicans argue
about how to spread the pain of health-care spending cuts, one
group has been curiously excluded from the discussion: doctors.
There’s good reason to change that.
Everybody likes doctors. They deliver our babies, treat our
ailments and often save our lives. In surveys of public trust,
they rate higher than college teachers, police, even clergy, and
vastly higher than journalists or politicians. Norman Rockwell
painted doctors as kind, patient and wise. You probably hope
your child marries one.
