Association of American Physicians and Surgeons Challenges New Healthcare Reform Law

Equal Justice Under Law

AAPS is the first national physician group to sue the federal government over the the Democrat’s new healthcare reform law, according to an article at MedPageToday.  The challenge is based on violations of both the Fifth and Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which the polititians had taken an oath to uphold. 

The new law will interfere greatly with the patient-physician relationship, inserting polititians and bureaucrats into the middle.  Patients will suffer.

    These people are Republican nut cases! The healthcare bill is now law and we need to move on.

    • Actually, the majority of physicians by most surveys are very much opposed to this reform. The reason, by my estimate, is that this bill was written largely with the input of the insurance industry and NOT physicians.

      Let me know when premiums drop and care improves. Then I’ll gladly correct myself. But if Massachusetts is any barometer, then premiums will rise even more rapidly and care is not going to improve.

      • Isaac, I think medical care overall will deteriorate over the next 10 year and beyond in the U.S., thanks to this legislation. At least it won’t be as good as it could have been. Time will tell. Things won’t get bad until 5-10 years from now. I’m glad I’m part of the brotherhood of Medicine because that will help me and my immediate family members when we need medical care. I feel sorry for others who will have to rely on their political connections.

        The good news is, we can still turn this thing around.
