Should Doctors Go on a Strike?

While many physicians are increasingly avoiding government run health care, House of God author Stephen Bergman, proposes we strike for more governmental oversight

I propose a doctors strike (or a healthcare workers strike, but I can only speak as a doctor). First, doctors would recruit enough colleagues to pledge that if, in two years (say, by July 4, 2009), there is not a federal law for a single-payer, universal coverage health system, we will go on strike.
