    •  That does not address the issue of cost.. (0+ / 0-)

      Yes it is wonderful if there is a increase in finanical aid to study medicine, but if the cost of that education is not reduced, then we the taxpayers will foot the bill for those grants at the same costs we see now.  So where do any savings to the public come in? I'm not saying that it might not be good policy to train doctors on the goverment dime, but I really don't see that concept getting very far in the United States.

      Now whoa whoa whoa right there spinach chin!
