Blitz on Washington

In my last post, I encouraged pharmacists to contact our elected officials in Washington about the MTM bill. I did so without realizing that there was a pharmacist blitz going on this week.

To use a football analogy, I hope we are blitzing the right people. As it sits now, the House Ways & Means and Energy & Commerce Committees hold the MTM football. They control where the bill, the football, goes. They are the quarterback.

These are the people who need blitzed.

In football, you don't blitz the water boy. So don't waste your time on Congressmen who are not part of these committees. When the bill reaches the House floor, that's when you blitz them.

Let's not waste our efforts on the water boy. Let's get to the quarterback.
