AMA Has Chance to Rescind Support of HR 3962; AMA Shout-Out from Public Urges Doctors to Answer to PATIENTS Not AMA Leadership
Date:11/7/2009

HOUSTON, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Members of the AMA are trying a last-minute tactic to introduce an emergency resolution rescinding the AMA's support of HR 3962.

"We want to remind physicians that they are responsible to their PATIENTS, not the leadership of the AMA," said Kathryn Serkes, Director of Policy for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, and Take Back Medicine, a coalition of other medical groups.

"If the AMA leadership ignores the public -- their patients -- it will set us back to the old days 'Doctor knows best' when patients were supposed to keep their mouths shut and do what the doctor ordered."

This week, Take Back Medicine called for a public "Shout-Out" at the AMA meeting, with doctors and patients expected around to arrive with the Tea Party Express bus in a caravan following their rally at the Sam Houston Raceway in Houston.

November 7. Approximately 1:30pm - 2pm.

Tea Party Express Bus leaves Sam Houston Race Park leading caravan to George R. Brown Convention Center, downtown Houston.
