Dissent in the AMA

Share this:


Dissent is increasingly roiling the American Medical Association, which once had 75 percent of physicians as members but now  has fewer than 25 percent.

The debate includes the incoming Trump administration’s vow to kill the Affordable Care Act and its nomination of vehemently anti-ACA ex-orthopedic surgeon Tom Price, M.D., a Georgia congressman, to be the next secretary of health and human services. It also includes such issues as Republican plans to turn the federal side of Medicaid into entirely a system of  block grants to the states and to defund Planned Parenthood.
