The American Medical Association on Thursday maintained its criticism of Republicans’ effort to repeal Obamacare after House Republicans passed a bill to do so.
The AMA, the country’s largest advocacy group for doctors, was a vocal opponent of Republicans first, failed effort to repeal Obamacare, and they announced their opposition to the amended effort before the House voted on it Thursday.
In a statement after Thursday’s vote, posted online by MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin, the organization emphasized that the bill would result in millions of people losing access to “quality, affordable health insurance” and would allow insurers to hike prices on individuals with pre-existing conditions under some circumstances.
