    AMA backs House health bill

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The influential American Medical Association on Thursday said it supported the healthcare overhaul legislation moving through committees in the Democratic-led House of Representatives and urged its approval.

    "This legislation includes a broad range of provisions that are key to effective, comprehensive health system reform," AMA executive vice president Michael Maves wrote to the House committee leaders.

    In particular, he said, the doctors' group backs the insurance market reforms that seek to expand healthcare coverage and the proposed health insurance exchange. In this exchange consumers would choose between private insurers and a public plan.

    The AMA says yes. What do you say?



    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    It is quite dumb.

    executive vice president Michael Maves does not express opinions of doctors as no doctor has ever delegated his voice on the legislation to Maves. I know it for sure, neither my physician nor my dentist did and they both explicitly expressed that with posting on their doors, - they are not excepting government insurance. ( I have to explain.I live in CT. We already have Public health care here .)

    Also such an activity as delegating one's voice/represnting somebody's voice on a legislation in such a way is ABSOLUTELY illegal in the US.

    This legislation has no provision or inclusion or even acknowledging of existence of customers. We, customers, have to eat what we are fed.

    It is a law of Nature that there cannot be any competition between private insurers and the government plan when the government dictates the plan. It is a mere expression of fascism and there is not even a single, not even one, justone private insurer who buys into the idea that Obama can override laws of nature unless the private insurer fully insured, run, dictated by the government.


    Michael Maves should be arrested on fraud and other charges and put in jail along with Obama, who must be impeached through the legal procedure first.

    If this Careless Health Plan for euthanasia and eugenics is past your health insurance company will be driven out of business and the exorbitant cost of the Socialist plan will help with the Dictator in Chief Obama's plane to destroy the counties economy and worse.

    Re: AMA backs House health bill

    So the AMA top brass backs a bill that will never be read by those who will vote on it with God knows what provisions that will be sprung on unsuspecting people. A bill that will not cut medical costs but only services. I agree that it is quite stupid. It reminds me of some energy companies' CEOs backing the cap and trade bill in the same breath that they act like they care about indigent electric bill payers who cannot even now pay their energy bill. 1984's doublethink and newspeak are here to stay, it appears.

    both are obviously idiots

    It is a law of Nature that there cannot be any competition between private insurers and the government plan when the government dictates the plan. It is a mere expression of fascism and there is not even a single, not even one, justone private insurer who buys into the idea that Obama can override laws of nature unless the private insurer fully insured, run, dictated by the government.
    "law of nature?" Do you seriously hear yourself (read yourself)? How is a government, culturally constructed system part of "nature" and how are private insurance companies part of "nature." Of course the private insurers don't buy into it. They have blown it for the people whom they serve and now are being handed their asses as it should be. This is not part of "nature" as you say. What a stupid line of argument.

    Michael Maves should be arrested on fraud and other charges and put in jail along with Obama, who must be impeached through the legal procedure first.
    Why? Is that part of nature too? I say hand the insurance companies their asses.

    Along with the majority(a growing one) of Americans I say-

    No



    CBO should have shot down the last fantasy of this with most people. As the CBO made clear 'ObamaCare' this will not save us money at all.


    ..and as others mentioned the pushers don't even know the contents of what they are pushing...HEROIN dealers have more respect for their buyers then those pushing this monstrosity have for you.

    Unlike the Messiah in Chief Obama's disciples of which you seem to be a worshiping member I can think for my self and can tell you that this plan will drive all insurance companies out of business fine people who can't afford Socialist insurance $1000 they don't have, cost billions the country does not have and, force euthanasia to reduce costs of care for the elderly and leave out about 10 million people and most likely exempt the Congress from having to participate.
    This is a purely Socialist plan the like of which in other countries costs more than they can afford. People who still believe the lies Obama tells every time he speaks are in a drunken like state mesmerized by by their Self proclaimed Muslim leader who will do what ever he can to drag this country down to the level of his native country of Kenya.
    Oh you don't believe he's Kenyan? Then why did he order that the Major who filed the law suit have his orders revoked. Why did Obama personally order than the man be fired from his job in retaliation, and to send a warning to others not to force the liar in to court where he will be forced to tell the truth for the first time since be opened his lying mouth to run for an office he is unqualified and unfit to occupy.
    Other than that he's a nice enough guy who cheats on his wife, and since she can't trust him why should we?

    Talk about flip-floppers!

    Doctors’ Group Opposes Public Insurance Plan

    By ROBERT PEAR
    Published: June 10, 2009
    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.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
