    Man I was flying high, prime of my life. Making tons of $$, living large. Working for firm and we are building multi-million buildings in Chicago, all of Michigan and Florida. This was late 80's and early 90's, banking had just been deregulated, the S&L debacle was being dissolved by way of the RTC. Banks were lending. BAM, 1994, Multiple Sclerosis. 1997 left the firm and decided to start my own construction company. 2004 comes and I am now in a wheelchair and took down my shingle.

    2012, my wife works full time in retail, I receive SSDI. I went years before Medicare decided I was disabled and broke enough to qualify. I am utterly dependent on Doc's like you.

    Please protest, please encourage your patients to demand that Social Security and Medicare be left alone. But please remember that people die. You said you are doing well because of your side job. Please don't throw your patients under the bus because you feel cheated..
