Well at least that's what's making the news.
In fact, there's been significant progress. Can I say that the support from the AMA is a coup? They're a totally overblown lobby (less than a third of doctor's are members) but they still command the public attention. Or at least, they did when they helped kill the Clinton bill. They were opposed to Obama's plan, and now they're on board. What was reported more? The opposition of course.
(I used to temp for the AMA in Chicago, by the way. And later, I had a job working for the same guy that sued the shit out of them for the Sunshine debacle. Google it. None of that deepens my understanding of the issues: it's just trivia.)
