“AMAC is proud to announce the delivery of a letter indicating our support for H.R. 6320, the “Safeguarding Care Of Patients Everywhere Act,” or “SCOPE Act,” to Georgia’s 11th District Representative Phil Gingrey, M.D.
The SCOPE Act appropriately repeals section 1311 (h) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), or “ObamaCare,” which grants the government-appointed Secretary of Health and Human Services sole power in determining what constitutes “quality care” and how physicians should administer that care to patients. AMAC firmly renounces the PPACA’s endowment of the broad and open-ended level of authority given to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, believing that vast power in the hands of an unaccountable government official poses myriad dangers to the future of health care in America.
As the Federal government relentlessly seeks to exert and expand its power over our country’s health care, AMAC supports the SCOPE Act’s bold legislative initiative to reign in the excesses of the PPACA. AMAC also believes this legislation is vital to maintaining the authority of state medical boards, in preventing the Federal government from making arbitrary decisions about what constitutes “quality care,” and to preserving the doctor-patient relationship.
AMAC will continue to advocate on behalf of the American people – especially senior citizens and prospective retirees – who remain concerned about their ability to access quality health care in the future. You can fully expect AMAC to keeping battling for your interests and welfare in our Nation’s capitol!
AMAC Fights For You!”
