    ..lthe AMA now only counts about 17% of doctors as members.

    According to a new survey, the majority of doctors do not believe that the AMA represents their views and interests. Much of that dissatisfaction stems from the organization’s support for President Obama’s contentious health care reform package.

    That shouldn’t be surprising. The AMA declares that its core mission is to “help doctors help patients.” But ObamaCare undermines that pursuit by making life harder for physicians and driving down the quality of care available to patients.....

    The Jackson & Coker survey joins a large stack of research with similar findings. In February, the National Physicians Survey discovered that more than three times as many doctors believed that the quality of American health care would “deteriorate” rather than “improve” under ObamaCare. Nine of ten physicians think ObamaCare will have a negative impact on their profession.

    There’s no doubt that it will.

  2. Given the fact that conservative judges have struck it down, and liberal judges have upheld it, when it reaches the SCOTUS, we will likely see the demise of this unconstitutional legislation.

    How will Obama react if the law is declared unconstitutional?

    I understand this is about the mandate to purchase insurance but that seems to be the gimmick the entire law is based on.

    How will Obama spin it?
