Congressional Democrats to AMA: Go Pound Sand – BrianFaughnan’s blog – RedState

ama fail It’s amazing that a bunch of doctors are so stupid to actually believe that the Dems will stand behind you when the are done with you.  You are an expendable tool.  So is everyone else as far as they are concerned.

Here’s a completely unsurprising and predictable story.

Do you remember how many conservatives spent months trying to figure out why the leadership of the American Medical Association signed the nation’s doctors up in support of Obamacare? Many conservatives argued that the AMA was being shortsighted – that Congressional Democrats would ultimately betray the AMA, despite the powerful group’s consistent advocacy of the president’s health care rationing bill. We knew that the AMA had made a deal with the devil: they backed Pelosi and Reid only because they promised the ‘doc fix’ – permanent relief from huge reductions in Medicare reimbursements. We said that Democrats would use the AMA endorsement and then turn against the group when they had the chance.

Well, we were right:

‘Doc Fix’ Could Be Left Stranded as Health Care Overhaul Founders

Those who follow the long-running doctor payment saga say the poisoned atmosphere surrounding health care spending makes it difficult to see how Congress will agree to the hundreds of billions of dollars needed to make a permanent change in the payment formula. The Senate has rejected attempts to pay for the 10-year cost without offsets.
