Have a great weekend! Here are a few tweets from the past two days. Great research on memory from NIH in one tweet! Hope for all of us who have been around a while.

Too bad AMA fails to mention private contracting and balance-billing in the interviews and letters to blogs etc.

When will AMA get aggressive about this mandate from House of Delegates! It is not enough to say the SGR is a disaster. Give a solution! The House of Delegates has one. It is called liberty and freedom of contract!

The doctors are looking for someone to lead them out of this government mess so they can care for their patients. And don’t forget, a substitute price-fixing formula without balance-billing option without penalty is NOT A SOLUTION.

Keep doing the same approach to Washington, DC and one can expect the same results. If this keeps up, another organization will emerge as the representative of doctors. Sad but true.

And now the tweets from


Taxes affect actions! RT @Heritage LeBron James is one wise “king.” Looks like he prefers lower taxes. #tcot #teaparty
