This is a conversation I wrote down that I had with a senior resident prior to the 2008 elections:
Resident: "Hey, if Obama gets elected, he's going to raise taxes on people with incomes over $250,000."
Me: "Wah wah."
Resident: "That's going to affect doctors."
Me: "I doubt it's going to affect me any time soon."
Resident: "It probably will. It's combined income and starting salary for a physiatrist is $190,000."
Me: "Yeah, except I only want to work part-time, so I don't think I'd get that high."
Resident: "You might."
Me: "Well, if I do, I should shut the hell up because I'll be making $250,000."
