    goes back to the beginning.  Major proponents for insurance companies providing health insurance were AMA and AHA.  It really wasn't until Medicare, I believe, that there was support for government financed healthcare but I suspect that was because it was more lucrative - the tune changed a bit when the government began to clamp down on payments.

    I think support from the medical community for universal healthcare depends on the type of doctor - you'll likely find much more support from primary care physicians but not as much from specialists.
