Doctors Blast the AMA for Pelosi-Care Endorsement; Will Hold Public 'Shout-out' at AMA Houston Meeting on Saturday Nov. 7 With Tea Party Protestors
HOUSTON, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) blasted the AMA for again publicly endorsing the massive Democrat healthcare reform bill in Congress.
"The AMA has sold out patients, and sold out the profession of medicine for a few dollars of Medicare money," said Ms. Serkes. "In July they endorsed HR 3200 and took a lot of heat and lost members in droves. "With the endorsement of HR 3962, it's now painfully clear the AMA does not represent it membership."
A large public demonstration has been organized by physician coalition "Take Back Medicine" on Saturday in Houston. After speaking at the Tea Party Express at the Sam Houston Raceway, AAPS Director Juliette Madrigal-Dersch, M.D. of Marble Falls, TX, and Kathryn Serkes, Director of Policy and Public Affairs, will ride the Tea Party Express bus, leading a caravan grassroots activists to join protesting doctors at the AMA meeting.
"They have one last chance to rescind this endorsement," said Serkes. "If they don't, the damage with the medical community will never be healed."
