Agree with your sentiments, but let correct a few things...

1. Doctors do go through at least 8 years. 50% of aspiring doctors have to first get a Master's degree and/or do research before medical school acceptance. This adds time and money. Plus you have to do a residency for 3-7 years AFTER 4 years of med school. The residencies pay an average of 12 dollars an hour. Even most dentists do residencies now, for at least 1 year pist doc

100,000 dollar debt? I WISH. Try 300,000. Dental school is 70,000 a year just in tuition. At 8% interest. And our generous government just stopped most of the subsidized loans, meaning medical students have compounding interest at a time when it is nearly impossible to earn income. We are being screwed.

3. Doctors still do a tremondous amount of charity work. This is partially why the free market works. But charity will decline because the poor already have such an extensive welfare system. The socialist system discourages charity.
