Jan 07, 2014, 10:00 ET from Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS)

Bill seeks to repeal ObamaCare and enable solutions that lower costs, increase access to high-quality medical care.

TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons has sent a letter of appreciation to Congressman (and fellow physician) Paul Broun (GA-10) to thank him for introducing the Patient OPTION Act, H.R. 2900.  The letter to Dr. Broun in part reads:

"Thank you for your advocacy on behalf of patients and doctors at a time when the American medical system is facing its destruction at the hands of ObamaCare. 

"Congress has passed law after law that disrupts the patient-physician relationship, corrupts medical decision making, and increases costs. AAPS members believe that harmful laws cannot be fixed by adding new regulatory burdens. True reform starts with repealing laws and correcting errors, restoring the freedom, under constitutionally limited government, that made America great.

"We would like to express our appreciation for your bill, H.R. 2900, the Patient OPTION Act.  No other bill takes such bold steps as H.R. 2900 does to begin rolling back the many decades of failed policies that have increasingly subjugated patient care to the interest of third parties and thwarted free market forces from providing a wealth of low cost, high-quality medical care."

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) is a national organization representing physicians in all specialties, founded in 1943 to preserve private medicine and the patient-physician relationship.
