AMPAC Statement Concerning Candidate Contributions in the 2022 Election Cycle As healers, physicians abhor violence. We were shocked and dismayed by the events of January 6 at the United States Capitol. Presently, the AMPAC Board of Directors will begin its normal process of considering contributions to candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. The January votes of incumbent members of Congress will be considered as part of our decision-making process throughout the 2022 cycle. AMPAC will not make any campaign contributions to members of Congress who voted to decertify the electoral college results in the wake of violent acts at the Capitol for the next six months. We acknowledge our fiduciary responsibility to pursue our duties with due diligence and to maintain our bipartisan reputation in support of the AMA’s federal advocacy agenda.
The AMPAC Board of Directors cordially invites 2021 Capitol Club members to attend a special Capitol Club Virtual event on Tuesday, June 15th at 12:00 pm CT with guest speaker Ron Brownstein, Senior Editor for The Atlantic and Senior Political Analyst for CNN. Mr. Brownstein is a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for political reporting and offers key analysis on politics, policy, the electorate, media, healthcare, and a range of issues informed by his strong insights of American political and national history. Brownstein will lead a discussion on the landscape of American politics today and take questions live during the event. Register today!
