Blunt Left Out of Obama Healthcare Meeting

Congressman Roy Blunt is not happy about not being included in a White House meeting about employer healthcare costs.
President Obama held a roundtable discussion with business leaders Tuesday -- but Republicans were shut out.
From the Washington Post: "I've told the President and White House staff on numerous occasions that the House Health Care Solutions Group is ready to work with him toward the shared goal of making quality, affordable health care accessible to all Americans," Blunt said in a statement. "This common ground serves as a constructive starting point for true health care reform, but we find private, one-party meetings that set arbitrary deadlines a sign of a troubling lack of bipartisanship," he added.
Blunt chairs a House special committee on healthcare.

It's so sad and true about chronic patients not being able to afford healthcare. I did some research online and stumble across a new search engine that finds generic prescriptions within your ZIP code. It's called Medtipster. I volunteer at a local community rec place and often hear stories from elders about skipping dosages and choosing grocery over medications. I started referring Medtipster to my friends and some of them have saved money and time from the website
