Doctors weigh in on health reform

New Orleans Times-Picayune, January 2, 2009

Two freshman lawmakers from Louisiana, both Republican physicians, could emerge as key opposition figures to President-elect Barack Obama's promised health reform initiative. The election of John Fleming in the 4th Congressional District and Bill Cassidy in the 6th gives the state three doctors, as the freshman lawmakers join Republican physician Charles Boustany of Lafayette, first elected in 2004. It's the largest medical contingent among the 50 state delegations for the 111th Congress, which convenes Tuesday.
