Dave you are 100% wrong, there's always been someone in charge of employees. In not Spring fan by any stretch, but that's exactly what I mean when I say being blinded by one sided politics just opens you up to being screwed by a party you thought you could trust. Everyone needs to open their eyes and think independently. Unfortunately Moore pays the good ole boy system as well as the best…

With all due respect, this article has nothing to do with poor people with disabilities. It's about making a specific law, that will be called upon (by Democrats) every time voter "suppression", no matter how insignificant or innocent, occurs, and will be held up to show how Republicans and/or conservatives are trying to disenfranchise voters. All the while the illegal voting will continue, by…

beaky- I knew that! O.K. In the State of llinois, one is given the opportunity, FREELY, and FREE of charge, because of public education, to obtain a drivers license, by way of drivers education. ALL students are advised that this not only prepares them as a driver, but also allows then to REGISTER TO VOTE at the DMV when they turn 18, and to BECOME AN ORGAN DONOR. (Both of these are near and dear to…

No. There are no reasonably searchable records kept of specific violations, only wikipedia "middle-of-the-road" stats, that are purposely vague.

Bill aims to create more residency slots at teaching hospitals

Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock has introduced legislation aimed at helping more med students become doctors.

Schock announced his sponsorship of the bill on what is known as match day by students studying to become doctors.

That's the day the med school students find out where they will be going for their residency training.

Schock said what is an exciting day for most medical students - is an enormously disappointing day for others because of the growing shortage of slots at teaching hospitals across the U S.

“Currently the estimation is that there are tens of thousands of shortages of GME slots. Part of this is because of the number of teaching slots, training slots has not been increased since 1997.”

That - coupled with increased demand in healthcare - led Schock to introduce his bill that will create 15 thousand more slots for medical residents.

Schock says the bill will help bring more doctors to rural hospitals by helping more students become primary care physicians...

“It focuses half of that 15,000 on primary care physicians, so in other words, people who go to medical school for the purposes of primary care.”

Schock introduced similar legislation last year but it saw no action during an election year.
