Nurses like Matt

 Most endorsements are good for a press release:

Plains, PA - Democratic Congressional candidate Matt Cartwright has been officially endorsed by both the American Nurses Association (ANA) and the American Hospital Association. 
“Matt has consistently stood up for the little guy during his years of taking on big business,” said ANA-PAC Chair Faith Jones, MSN, RN, NEA-BC. “His passion for fixing our health care system is something that is closely shared by myself and nurses in Pennsylvania and across the country.”
ANA is the only full-service professional organization representing the interests of the nation's 3.1 million registered nurses through its constituent and state nurses associations and its organizational affiliates.
“I am honored by these endorsements. The future of our Nation’s healthcare is a priority of mine and I will continue to fight for the people of the Northeastern Pennsylvania in Congress,” said, Cartwright.
Cartwright, continued, “I have spent my professional career protecting people and small business owners from uncaring insurance companies. In Congress, among my top priorities will be protecting Medicare, Veterans Health Benefits and working to create the best healthcare system in the world.”

Laureen Cummings has been urging people to send a nurse to Congress.  It seems that her peers disagree.

Obviously these nurses have never been maliciously sued by these attorneys.

The nurses association endorsed ObamaCare because it gives them the opportunity to do what doctors do without going to medical school, since there aren't any provisions in the law to increase the number of doctors to provide all the free stuff. But there are a lot of measures to increase funding to teach advanced practice nurses how to take over for doctors - which is what the leadership of this left-leaning organization has wanted for decades.
