AMA Smacks Down RNC Claim That Dems Could Deny Care to Republican Voters

One wish these sorts of denunciations weren’t necessary, but a spokesman for the American Medical Association writes in to rebut the RNC’s suggestion that “GOP voters might be discriminated against for medical treatment in a Democrat-imposed health care rationing system.”

“Patients should rest assured that the health care legislation under consideration in the House does not ration medical care or discriminate based on political affiliation. The fact is that the House bill will expand coverage and prohibit denials for coverage based on pre-existing medical conditions. The AMA is working for all Americans to have affordable, quality health coverage so they can get the care they need.”

The AMA is the largest professional association of physicians in the country–and I for one will rest easily knowing that their members aren’t hatching a revenge conspiracy to deny care to Republicans in a reformed health care system.
