    It is also a question of membership ...

    Your point about not splitting membership is a good one.

    •  AMA vs. California Nurses. (5+ / 0-)

      In many ways AMA was first and foremost a political lobbying group and has been a bad actor from day one. AMA lobbying government to kill the public health visiting nurses program is best example.

      California Nurses are the opposite side of the spectrum, politically involved and pushing for single payer.

      I wonder if it wouldn't be better to let the membership split over the delivery system, at least we would have clear voices and solutions offered by the front line practitioners.  From that would likely come some good ideas.
