73% of Physicians support Public Option
It is true the the AMA only represents only about 30% of doctors these days, however a new survey by the non partisan and very influential New England Journal of Medicine shows that 73% of doctors favor a public option, In fact 10% favor a complete government takeover of health insurance.
Quite clearly those that deal with the issue every day doctors, know the severe problems with our current system. They are also quite familiar with government run health care through their current experiences with Medicare and Medicaid. To Doctors the only thing worse then dealing with Government on insurance issues is dealing with the Insurance Companies.
