The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
says its political action committee has raised $63,000 to oppose
ObamaCare. Dr. Jane Orient of Arizon tells OneNewsNow the AAPS-PAC reports that contributions donated
this year have doubled and will fund candidates who oppose the
federal healthcare overhaul.
"For many reasons, we think
that ObamaCare must be repealed," she states. "There are many
problems with medicine; I think almost all of them are related to
third-party payments. These need to be addressed, but ObamaCare
moves us entirely in the wrong direction."
The AAPS-PAC is supporting 19 legislative candidates and hopes
to see a majority win in a tight race for the U.S. Senate.
"We think the single most important issue is whether or not the
candidate will vote to repeal ObamaCare or whether he can
vote to repeal ObamaCare," says Dr. Orient. "If the Senate remains
in Democrat hands, he probably will have no opportunity whatsoever,
as Harry Reid will keep the issue from coming to the floor."
The PAC notes that donations in 2010 amounted to $30,000 -- less
than half of this year's total of more than $62,000.
