WASHINGTON — As the health care debate heats up, the American Medical Association is letting Congress know that it will oppose creation of a government-sponsored insurance plan, which President Obama and many other Democrats see as an essential element of legislation to remake the health care system.

This likely signals that the “public option” is looking a lot worse that the insiders thought.

BTW, since the turn of the 20th century, national healthcare has been considered very seriously about every 10-20 years. Each time, most historians feel that doctors ultimately stopped it. They did not want to be “government employees”.

Stupid is as stupid posts, affirmative action long ago addressed you statement stupid.

The chief lobbyists against releasing records of complaints against doctors is the AMA.

This admin is truly pathetic. But if you think about it, the pharma cos will not be able to make the meds we’ll need to sustain life. So, these docs that have their lips mighty puttied to the hindsides of the dems will see soon enough when one of their loved ones gets a devastating illness, and they are going to be left to die.

But - the sinister side of me believes that certain meds will be put in reserve for the admin and their families...and certain docs might get preferential treatment for themselves and their families if they keep their mouths shut about it!

I have no idea how many PACs AMA donate to (check your own state for libs running or who ran in last election) and you will notice AMA donating to their PACs. ‘nuff said

My doctor (whom I love) told me last time I was in — “Do not join HMO!”
