How's your pulse?

Hi folks,

Every day we're hearing some new wrinkle in the Health Care Reform debate. I've heard some negativity from pharmacists who are concerned with how HCR will be financed. At the same time, we get positive feedback about our successes in getting pharmacists included in the Senate HELP proposal. Meanwhile, we continue to seek more pharmacist-friendly provisions. We're also looking for clarification regarding how certain deals for savings are being met to ensure pharmacists won't be disadvantaged.

If you are reading or listening to the debate and you're willing to let me know your take, I would appreciate hearing. APhA has good policy that directs our actions, but we don't have policy on everything and knowing the pulse of our membership is valuable.
