Bad AMA judgment
Re: “Reader Poll: Is the AMA right on the individual mandate?” ModernHealth care.com: This position, unfortunately, typifies the poor judgment that AMA leadership has exercised in recent years. For mysterious reasons, they have decided to support what most knowledgeable observers agree is a heavyhanded, poorly designed monstrosity of a healthcare reform law, guaranteed to increase the size of government regulatory offices and diminish the ability of physicians to take good, individualized care of their patients.
It’s no wonder that the AMA’s membership numbers continue to slide—they really seem to have lost touch with the interests and opinions of those they’re supposed to be representing.
