Why isn't there a push to bring in the foreign doctors?
Bad example. There is a push, but we're looking at pure protectionism. Doctors have the AMA guild with enough money to make it near impossible for a doctor without an MD from a US institution to get a license to practice medicine in the US. You could be a naturalized citizen with a MD from a top British med school and have no hope of ever practicing medicine in theUS without going back to school.
