No medical license required but must attend a 3 day seminar. Steady hands and familiarity with knives a plus. Lousy pay but steady work.

I heard Howard Dean acknowledge just that with my own ears.
And Krugman let slip that is the middle class that would be paying for it.
Yet strangely we hear nothing from the beltway GOP about those statements. It seems the fix is in.
