The AMA and Health Care Reform
Yglesias here has a post about the American Medical Association and its ties to for-profit businesses. Currently, according to him, the pharmaceutical industry provides about 20% of AMA's budget. This makes me less surprised that they have come out against a public health care option, despite many physicians having become disgusted with the failures of our current health care system.
