The AMA and healthcare reform

HCP Live has a nice article that shows that the AMA (American Medical Association) has changed its stance on proposed healthcare reform plans and this appears to be causing some internal disputes within the organization. Don't you just love organizational politics? The article is titled, "The AMA Endorses the America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009"

Healthcare reform is causing a tremendous amount of friction among various groups. CNN is reporting that "House Democrats splinter over health care." Splinter? That doesn't sound good, does it? The CNN story starts with this line:
House Democrats split sharply over the issue of health care reform Friday as negotiations between a committee chairman and party conservatives broke down.
So when will we all agree on the proper healthcare reform policies?

  1. I think we will agree on implementing "proper healthcare reform policies" when we can agree what those proper policies are. Every player in the debate believes their approach is the correct one and not only doesn't trust the other factions, but accuses them of some nefarious purpose from secret Socialism to callus greed. Before we can make an adjustment to a very good health care system ( it's the means for paying for it that's the problem, after all), we need to find the causes for the exorbitant costs.
