Health care professionals from several organizations to gather at Capitol Tuesday

(PHOENIX, AZ) – A coalition of doctors and other health care professionals will gather tomorrow, Tuesday, April 2, at the Arizona State Capitol to voice opposition to the effort by Gov. Jan Brewer and the hospital lobby to expand Medicaid/AHCCCS under ObamaCare.  Among the organizations represented will be the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and Docs for Patient Care.

Tom Jenney, Arizona Director for Americans for Prosperity, echoed the concerns of those in the medical profession who are speaking out against the proposed Medicaid expansion.  “Many doctors and nurses are concerned that the expansion of Medicaid will further ObamaCare’s destruction of the doctor-patient relationship,” Jenney said.  “Medical professionals are also concerned about pushing another quarter million to a half million vulnerable Arizonans into a system that treats them like second-class medical citizens — a system in which they will face longer and longer waiting times for life-saving and life-improving health care services.”

Details for the press conference are as follows:

Time: 4:00-4:30 PM (Please arrive early for briefing 3:30-3:45)
