Nurse practitioners at lower pay

No, no, no. The point of authorizing Nurse Practitioners to take on more scope, stuff traditionally done by MDs, is not to start paying the NPs the same as MDs. The point is to use the right, cost-effective resource for the work. If it doesn't require an MD, then it shouldn't command MD pay rates. NOT the other way around. (Most especially since American MDs are generally considered much better-paid that counterparts in other advanced countries.)
