It’s a Great Day for Healthcare CEOs!

Congratulations to the CEOs of the healthcare industry! You did it again:

For the third time in four years, chief executives in the healthcare field led the S&P 500 in terms of total compensation. The typical CEO in the industry made $16.1 million last year, which means half earned more than that, and half made less.

Amazing stuff. In a time where people are struggling to pay their premiums and their healthcare bills, somehow these CEOs were able to ignore any sense of guilt or shame and pay themselves even more. Bravo. Bravo.

    And we’ve allowed this to happen.
    Now that MDs are employees of these thugs, we can organize and collective bargain leagally.
    Hey, Teamsters Union, come and see us.

    Aw c’mon Doug, don’t be so harsh.

    These CEOs work hard, just like the rest of us: Their chauffeurs drop them off every morning at ten, they take a nice two-hour three-martini lunch, return for more work, and their chauffeurs pick them up again at four, whether they’re ready to leave or not.

    I’ve had a banner year as well – I’ve paid myself more by taking extra exam gloves and decks of printer paper – makes me feel like a big shot, too!

    I can’t wait to see what next year holds!
