Will this be a presentation of the AMA's position to maintain the cash-cow status quo?

Dr. Stein is a wonderful physician and human being and I'm betting he'll present a thoughtful commentary about what he sees as the benefits and potential pitfalls of the healthcare plan being proposed. How about going to hear him speak before you make a judgment about it?

Doc Stein is an awesome doctor, but since this event is sponsored by the Democrats, I suspect it will lean liberal. Sorry Logan72, but as you are well aware, this is a political hot button. I can't imagine the Democrats getting a doctor to talk about keeping a private system. If it was sponsored by the hospital, I might take a different look.

I merely asked a question, Alia. Thanks for your answer.

"I can't imagine the Democrats getting a doctor to talk about keeping a private system."

All current indications are that the Democrats are just as bought off as the Republicans on this issue, so your prediction lacks any basis in fact.
