    Well, we're electing a new congress next November. They're officially working until the new congress is sworn in next January. We have time.

    And thank you!

    just a note on this issue

    I sent a note to my friend in Senator Reid's office on Coburn holds. They are aware and are working on it. That is a great sign.

    Also, what have any of you done on Sen Kennedy's staff and Harkin staff on pressing Sen Coburn to release that bill. I am sorry I am not up on this right now, if any of that has been done. I am working on medicare issues... with competitive bidding.

    If any of you have time to be in DC on the 6th.. let's show CMS that we are not going to have them take away peoples choice of who provides them with DME.

    Madonna..


    see the tread i posted Thanks
