of pharmacists will soon be in San Francisco for the American Pharmacists
Association convention. Many, many pharmacists have been heroes, giving
patients their medicines in the face of uncertain repayment, and spending
hours on phones to drug plans and the government. Now is the time
for their organization, the American Pharmacists Association, to say:
SCRAP AND REPLACE PART D AND THE WHOLE MEDICARE MODERNIZATION ACT!
“Medicare Modernization” endangers our lives by disrupting
our access to needed drugs, makes us buy our drugs from private
companies, and makes the poor pay more than before.
“Medicare Modernization” threatens to privatize doctors
visits, making the sick and poor pay more than the healthy and rich.
“Medicare Modernization” threatens to bankrupt Medicare.
“Medicare Modernization” gives billions to drug makers
and the HMOs.
“Medicare Modernization” was forced down our throats
by PHARMA arm-twisting, and threats, and crooked deals in Congress.
