158th AMA Annual Meeting
In a nearly hourlong speech, President Obama told the AMA he hopes to slow spending on health care costs. "I'm here today because I don't want our children and their children to still be speaking of a crisis in American medicine 50 years from now. I don't want them to still be suffering from spiraling costs that we did not stem, or sicknesses that we did not cure. … I want them to benefit from a health care system that works for all of us."
