AMAC to Congress: Defund Obamacare
The association initiates massive Congressional mailing, backed up by tens of thousands of member petitions
“We applaud the recent House vote to repeal ObamaCare! But, as you know, action in the Senate is doubtful. Short of a full repeal, we ask the Congress to defund or systematically eliminate the most dangerous parts of the law, like the Independent Payment Advisory Board, and to pass real health care reform that actually reduces costs and strengthens the doctor-patient relationship,”
The letters were accompanied by actual petitions signed by constituents living in each district. They are “hard proof that seniors, prospective retirees and hard-working taxpayers in every district in the country are very concerned about ObamaCare and its impact on our freedoms and way of life,” Weber said.
“As the Supreme Court has ruled, ObamaCare is a massive tax increase on the taxpayer. It will slash Medicare and reduce Medicare payments to doctors and was passed with dubious promises to the American people.”
AMAC has been in the forefront of the fight to achieve realistic, equitable and effective health care reform for all citizens. Recently the association put together a series of online workshops where doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, health insurance providers, drug company executives, experts from patient advocacy organizations, study groups and think tanks could exchange views on “alternative avenues of reform based, not on politics, but on their own knowledge and understanding of the issue.”
Weber said that preliminary reports from the workshop sessions will be available in the next couple of weeks.
When he announced the workshops last month the AMAC chief noted that: “so-called Washington DC professionals have tackled the issue of health care reform and have failed miserably. It’s time for real health care pros to put in their two cents worth.”
