After all, we don't let foreign doctors practice medicine on our people - that would just let our poor people get cheaper healthcare over Skype from a doctor in Phillipines or India for about $5 to $10. We need regulation and stricter standards that the union (AMA) and federal government decides - not to create an artificial scarcity of doctors and keep pays and costs sky high - but to protect us!
Yes, we need the same kind of regulation for engineers and scientists. We need some computer science union like IEEE to be able to regulate who writes the website for a Google Health or Microsoft Healthvault.
Only by having regulation, can we help our scientists and engineers in healthcare make respectable salaries ($300K and higher) rather than the globally competitive market rates. (Learn more about how AMA helps do the same for doctors here.)
This madness must stop, now!
(For those challenged in art of humor, this is a sarcastic post to comment on how we have created an inflated cost structure and restricted supply by letting a union decide who can diagnose my flu.)
