One good idea among the payoffs

I was looking at Michelle Malkin’s list of payoffs in the Senate Healthcare bill. It’s a list that doesn’t inspire confidence, however there is one gem hidden in the manure. Who knew it would be from the socialist in the place?

The $10 billion, added at Sanders’ request, would also ensure there would be medical professionals to provide primary care by expanding the National Health Service Corps by an additional 20,000 slots. Doctors, dentists, nurses and other medical professionals who agree to work in areas where there are limited medical services get help paying off their school loans.

This is exactly what I was talking about in my post about containing healthcare costs.

Does it make this bill worthwhile? Of course not. But of all the things there are to hit over this bill, this one piece isn’t an issue for me.
