We're looking for some feedback from our readers. As we all know, the AMA and AOA were pushing pretty hard to have this bill passed and now they've had their way. Doctors are now protected from a 10.6% funding to treat Medicare patients. One of many adequate news pieces on the subject is available at: http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/legislative/2008-07-15-congress-veto_N.htm?csp=34
So did doctors, patients, and America win on this one? Let us know what you think! Please post your comments in the comment box or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maytag and Rusty Scalpel are doing some additional research on the subject and their take may surprise you. Check back in the next couple of days for their analysis of the bill and veto.
