interesting that there's apparently enough support to the idea that the US needs to make itself more competitive and attractive to skilled overseas workers.
but the part about making it easier for doctors will definitely be shot down by the medical association, among the three best trade unions in the US, the others being the american association of retired persons and the jewish group. by keeping doctor supply down they have managed to keep doctor salaries high. incidentally there is now a move to have fast-food type quick-care medical centers staffed by nurses, which can take care of 90% of the types of casual hospital visits that today cost so much money.
