MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An organization of Alabama doctors has
sent a letter to leaders in Congress opposing a proposed health
care reform bill in the U.S. House.
The president of the Medical Association of the State of
Alabama, Dr. Jorge Alsip of Mobile, said the bill being considered
in the House would not cure the problems of the U.S. health care
The letter says the proposed plan is inconsistent with the
atmosphere needed to provide quality medical care.
The American Medical Association has endorsed the House bill.
Alsip said the Alabama doctors disagree on this issue but are not
splitting from the AMA.
