Do you agree with this person? Regarding Health Care Reform and Health Care workers?

"If you are going to pharmacy school, you will be lucky to be making $25,000 to $30,000 per year. There is no chance that you will be making anywhere close to $100,000 per year. This plan will be an enormous financial drain on The United States of America. One of the few places where costs can be cut is employee salaries. All of the salaries in the health care field will be cut dramatically. There are many excess people who want those jobs, so you can cut all of the salaries to less than 1/3 of what they are today and you will still find plenty of people who want those jobs. Essentially the Obama plan means that you will never make it to the middle class if you are working in the health care industry. You should expect to continue to be making about the same money as you are making in the Pizza Parlor." My first response is: Do you have any idea the extensiveness of the schooling a Pharmacist must go through? If they aren't compensated for their time in school, that no one else is able to complete, why should a teacher, who doesn't have near the work load of a PHarmacy student, get paid more?".

I agree salaries will go down, probably not by more than 30% Taxes will go way, way up so we will have far less disposable income. The worst salary cuts will be for physicians, causing a dangerous shortage. Care will suffer, but does anybody care?
