Senators Cornyn and Hutchison definitely heard TMA’s message on the Medicare bill loud and clear. TMA worked with our county societies to arrange dozens of solid stories in Texas and national news media. More important, TMA members flooded the senators’ phone lines and e-mail boxes with personal messages. Thank you for explaining to them why you were so upset at the prospect of the payment cut. Over the past 30 days, each of the senators received more than 1,400 e-mails and more than 400 phone calls from Texas physicians through the TMA and American Medical Association Grassroots Action Centers. Thank you for taking the time to engage in this critical political process. This is an important part of what makes TMA so effective.
