    It is more than physician pay. If physician pay is cut (due to lower reimbursements) then every healthcare worker will have a pay cut. Do you really think that healthcare could get to the point that physical therapist or nurse anesthetist would get to make more than a physician?

    There is a compensation pecking order in medicine and if the top people take a pay cut, then everyone gets a pay cut.
