More Nurse-practitioners

Amen, Ezra.

Using more nurse-practitioners to drive down medical care costs is an sensible idea that should be pushed. Ezra also raises an interesting angle that this is a good way to do an end run around the AMA, which is the powerful professional body ensuring that it remains absurdly hard to become an MD and therefore salaries stay high.
