AMA endorses Democratic health reform bill

By Bruce Japsen
| The American Medical Association this afternoon endorsed the Democratic health reform bill as President Barack Obama and leaders in the U.S. House push to win over undecided House members who will vote on the bill this weekend.

“The pending bill is imperfect but…we cannot let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” said Dr. James Rohack, president of the Chicago-based national doctor group. “The status quo is simply not acceptable.”

The AMA represents a quarter million U.S. physicians.
