    For months, said Washington health-care attorney Rene Quashie, his phone has been “ringing off the hook,” with hospital and doctor clients wanting advice on how to reorganize themselves to get new Medicare bonuses under the health-care law. Handling such questions, said Quashie, an associate with the firm Drinker Biddle & Reath, is sure to be “a growth area” for his firm.

    And a lucrative one.

    From Washington to California, the year-old health law, with its layers of complexity, is setting off a gold rush for high-priced lawyers and consultants. It’s “a full employment act for health-care consultants,” said Ian Morrison, a founding partner of Strategic Health Perspectives in Menlo Park, Calif.

    "For a country that bases its economy on the government - such as Cuba, Venezuela, China - that is fantastic! However, that is not how the American economic system has been structured (though Pelosi, Obama, Reid et al gave it a good, strong push in that direction over the past 2 years). "

    Typical SB misinterpretation of economic issues. Notice I didn't say republican, libertarian or conservative because that would be unkind, unfair and untrue. You have the corner on Anne Coulter stupid. icon_wink.gif
