  1. Ladies and Gentlemen. I am here to offer my services. I would be happy to be on a commitee, or other group to help ease this-thank God it’s going to happen-transition. Wrote a letter to Trump, didn’t send.

    I like what you have so far.

    To add though:

    1. get rid of the “minimum acceptable insurance” and associated penalty.

    2. get rid of all barriers to physician ownership of their practices, offices, hospitals, etc.

    3. remove the onerous laws that restrict medical trade.

    4. Please let’s remove the idiot laws that prevent drug companies from feeding us, giving us perks, etc. It is insulting to believe that we are that influenced by their “play pretties’ that they gave us. Maybe residents, but not clinicians.

    5. Allow balanced billing on All patients. Moronic laws. More
