Strong Support For Health Care Reform From AMA And AARP

Very encouraging news this weekend comes from the head of the American Medical Association and the leader of the American Association Of Retired Persons, two powerful groups that have endorsed Health Care plans advocated by President Obama and Democratic leaders of Congress.

They argued that rationing of health care would NOT occur, and that the so called accusations of “death panels” was a terrible falsehood, and that a complete overhaul would promote major savings and get rid of waste present in today’s health care system.

This was a major rebuke to GOP leaders who contend that the administration plan has too many flaws, and should be abandoned.

This news comes at a time when the Democrats and Obama can use any support they can get, with the growing attack on the plan by corporate and conservative interests.
