The increasing cost of health care has become a major concern to the US Government, business and all Americans. Corporate salaries for senior executives is unnecessarily excessive and I see this as a cause of the problem.
Doctors belong in a similar socio-economic group as senior corporate executives, though years of profligate corporate spending during the roaring 1990’s has created quite a wide gap.
Now it’s the doctor’s turn to turn the screws and raise rates by 15%, year after year, so that they will be able to live in the same neighborhood as their corporate brethren. The Wall Street Journal teaches that wealth is a relative term and thus similar socio-economic groups should naturally seek parity.
It’s a classic case of the rabbit and the hare. Bring sanity back to corporate compensation and the cost of medical services will follow.
