AAPS Sues to Stop the Unlawful Revisions to ObamaCare
Update: AAPS filed the folllowing brief in opposition to government's motion to dismiss on January 24, 2014: http://AAPSonline.org/aaps-v-irs-01-25-2014.pdf ------------ The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) has filed a lawsuit today in federal court to halt the unlawful revisions to ObamaCare (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act).

Advocates assert that canceled plans are "substandard," and that while some will pay more, large numbers of Americans will be newly eligible for Medicaid or subsidized plans, AAPS notes. An online survey by AAPS garnered some 1,400 responses. So far, 219 have had their existing insurance plan canceled. Only 121 reported trying to sign up for ObamaCare, and only 27 were successful.

Vermont a “Petri Dish” for Nationwide Single Payer
Vermont has experimented with healthcare reform for a long time, and now for the first time vast amounts of federal money are being sunk into the effort, write Darcie Johnston and Robert S. Emmons, M.D., in the winter 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. “Although Vermont has a population of only 630,000 residents, our small state has to date received more than $400 million in federal funds, and the spigot is still flowing.” In 2011, Gov. Peter Shumlin signed into law the first state-wide single-payer system in the U.S. The goals included the elimination of health... read more

Affordable Care Act Destroys Privacy, explains Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom
Patient privacy is under assault from a series of federal laws, culminating in the Affordable Care Act (ACA or “ObamaCare”), writes patient advocate Twila Brase, R.N., in the winter 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.
