Doctors, Plumber Envy and a 1969 Ode to Obamacare -

It's coverage of a speech by outgoing AMA president Dwight L. Wilbur. Take away a few details, and it sounds very much like a flat-out endorsement of the Affordable Care Act.

Wilbur praises the expansion of neighborhood health centers as "a major advance in improving the medical care delivery system;" the ACA gives greater emphasis to Federally Qualified Health Centers. Voluntary health insurance "must cover continuing care in and out of hospitals and catastrophic illness," asserts Wilbur; the ACA eliminates lifetime limits on health insurance and, through provisions such as Medicare's accountable care organizations, tries to reward coordinated inpatient and outpatient care.
Finally, Wilbur says that for Americans unable to pay for insurance, "the federal government must provide for a payment of the premium through a mechanism such as the tax credit plan proposed by the American Medical Association. The most effective means of meeting the rising costs of medical care, he continues, "is to spread the costs as widely as possible through private insurance plans. Tax credits, of course, are a central part of the ACA's health coverage mandate affecting employers and individual citizens. (Nixon endorsed the employer mandate, too.) That mandate, in turn, represents precisely the kind of expansion of the risk pool described by Wilbur.
