If You Want to Keep Your Doctor, Change the Senate
If You Want to Keep Your Doctor, Change the Senate
by Jane M. Orient, M.D. My favorite bumper sticker for this campaign season is “Keep your doctor, change your senator.” Monica Wehby, M.D., pediatric neurosurgeon, is trying to unseat a one-term Democrat in Oregon. Dr. Wehby has been very active in the American Medical Association, trying to change its pro-ObamaCare stance. She is one of five women physicians running for Congress. Alieta Eck, M.D., an internist, is running for the House of Representatives in New Jersey. She is a past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Nan Hayworth, M.D., an ophthalmologist, is running for the House in... read more

Mr. Riggs is the only candidate committed to rolling back the ObamaCare AHCCCS (Medicaid) expansion. This law was rammed through the legislature unlawfully, defying the voice of the people and the State Constitution, which requires a supermajority to raise taxes.

It forces more Arizonans... read more

Dr. Eck is running against a progressive liberal with a long track record of supporting failed big-government programs that are harmful to patients. To the contrary, Dr. Eck has already implemented real solutions that increase access to low-cost, high quality care with private funding and... read more

Hillary Clinton San Diego Appearance Changes To Satellite As Protest Swells
Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a sudden scheduling change related to her appearance in San Diego on April 11, 2014 at a major healthcare conference. Local residents made aware of Hillary Clinton's coming to San Diego organized a protest rally addressing the former Secretary's role in what has been termed the Benghazi Cover Up. According to Pat Smith, mother of one of the fallen heroes Sean Smith, attendees were given a notice last week that Hillary's appearance as Key Note Speaker had been changed to a satellite presentation. Hillary Clinton's swing through California for April 2014 was... read more

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), a voice for private medicine since 1943, enthusiastically supports Alieta Eck, MD for New Jersey's 12th Congressional District seat in the United States House of Representatives.
