Madison360: Doctors behind bars? Another splendid GOP idea
"That this bill was shoved down the throats of doctors, would interfere with their work and threaten them with jail, makes it the foremost outrage among 14 months of outrageous government actions.
In the big picture, it’s fascinating to watch whom these Republicans choose to meddle with.
Doctors regularly appear at or near the top in rankings of the nation’s most respected job categories. But then teachers, firefighters and police officers also rank at or near the top, and the GOP went after their benefits and, in the case of teachers at least, the power of their unions.
Scientists also rank high, yet the GOP inflicted draconian cuts to the University of Wisconsin-Madison budget even though its scientists attract massive grants and make UW-Madison a world-class research university."
