The better you are, the more wanted you will be. And that's why I believe, as I stated in my first post in this thread, that there's never been a better time to be in the profession.

Medicare (and Medicaid) made the healthcare industry rich. Anytime you have the full backing of the United States to support your paycheck because you are doing operations and checkups and testing, you're going to see a stable monetary benefit (not to mention, an increase in the amount of operations, checkups, and testing -- that age-old incentive issue).

Even supposing Medicare payments to doctors are cut, even drastically, my belief is that the healthcare system will be a well-compensated profession.
You shouldn't use your thumb to take a pulse.
