AAPS Doctors: White House Healthcare 'Prom' Invitations 'Lost in the Mail'
Date:3/4/2009

Who'll Be Voted Prom King & Queen Tomorrow?

WASHINGTON, March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) issued the following statement by Kathryn Serkes, Director of Policy and Public Affairs, regarding the President's Healthcare Summit on March 5, 2009:

"We've received numerous media inquiries about our participation in the President's Healthcare Summit on March 5

"But apparently, our invitation was lost in the mail.

"It's interesting that reporters just assumed the nation's only professional association of doctors in private practice would be asked to the dance. But apparently we didn't make the cut. They could have asked Rep. Tom Price, M.D., one of the few physician Members of Congress. But no! -- better that more academics and politicians who have never examined a real patient are on the guest list.

"We've checked with dozens of leading healthcare and tax policy experts-- big names that you would expect to be invited, that should be invited if you're serious about throwing around some ideas. But their dance card is empty too. A party is always more fun when everyone there is your friend and won't cause any unpleasantness.

"Since this Administration is rationing participation, it leads us to believe that it has no problem with rationing care as well.

"Yes, it's fun to be asked to the prom. It's a nice ego boost. But when all is said and done, the prom isn't real life. Instead, you have to do the real work of making changes and getting things done, not just playing dress-up and going dancing.

"We'll just keep working on changes that have already shown a tremendously positive impact on patients - like Health Savings Accounts and other ways to put patients in charge instead of government or insurance bureaucrats.

"We'll let the 'popular kids' hav
