AMA endorses $940 billion health care reform bill

March 19, 2010 · Posted in Commentary 

In a slap to the face to the opponents of the $940 billion health care reform bill, the American Medical Association endorsed the legislation “as a step toward providing coverage to all Americans and improving our nation’s health system.” 

J. James Rohack, M.D., AMA president, stated, “While the final product is certainly not what we would have devised, we strongly support the parts of this bill that are desperately needed by millions of Americans who are struggling to get or keep health insurance coverage.”

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that this bill will reduce the Federal budget deficit by $138 billion over the next ten years.

The Federation of American Hospitals has also endorsed the bill.
