When you see "AMA Supports Obamacare" it's not the same as "Majority of Doctors Support Obamacare". Fact is that nearly 70 percent of Doctors do NOT subscribe membership to the AMA.
"HOUSTON — The American Medical Association on Monday rebuffed dissident members and voted to stick with support for ongoing health reform efforts, while reiterating wariness over proposals that threaten doctors' pocketbooks and independence.
The action at the group's semiannual meeting in Houston could be seen as a vote of confidence for AMA leaders who voiced support for the $1.2-trillion, 10-year bill the U.S. House passed Saturday.
Several dissident doctor organizations within the AMA had urged the group to reverse its position and come out with a strong statement opposing Democrat-led reform efforts. Some urged the AMA's 544-member House of Delegates to vote to oppose any health overhaul that includes a public insurance option and Medicare payment cuts to doctors, and that excludes tort reform. Discussions about the proposed resolutions spurred a lengthy debate Sunday that went on for more than eight hours."
