AMA and drug companies

from Think Progress:

". . . while the AMA projects an image of representing doctors (a claim tarnished by the fact that the AMA inflates its numbers by giving reduced membership fees to medical school students and retirees, who make up about half of the dues payers), it is actually financially tethered to the drug industry. Unless there are major structural changes to the AMA and its sources of revenue, it is difficult to view the group as an honest broker in the reform dialogue."
