AMA urges physicians to contact Senators

From the AMA

Yesterday afternoon Senate leadership overcame the first legislative hurdle in their attempt to pass potentially devastating health care legislation.  With the motion to proceed vote deadlocked at 50-50, the Vice President cast the deciding vote in favor of moving forward.

This is serious! The Senate will now take votes over the next few days in an attempt to pass legislation that could, depending on the version, result in anywhere between 22 – 32 million people losing their health care coverage according to the latest figures from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Physicians stand united with their patients - Contact your Senators now and tell them to oppose any legislation that would cut coverage for Americans with health insurance, take quality health care coverage away from those who have it now and drives up premiums and increases out-of-pocket health care costs - It's time to put patients before politics!
