Does anyone really care?

AMA to vote on delaying drug ads
The American Medical Association's House of Delegates will vote as early as today on a measure backing a federal moratorium on drug ads.

The group is being asked by members to put its clout behind legislation that would delay the start of print or TV ads after a drug is approved.
Really, does the AMA have very much clout left anymore? Look at this:
The American Medical Association, which traditionally has been considered the nation's largest medical organization, confirmed yesterday that only 26% of the nation's doctors are AMA members.
I'm not a member because I disagree with so much of their political agenda.
