What a fitting title, lame duck. We are going to have to wait until next month or possibly next year to see what happens with the Arthritis act. There was no Senate consideration of the bill during the November session. But let’s not get discouraged. Thanks to all of you who wrote letters; I don’t think that they were in vain. The Arthritis Foundation even states that our work is evidenced with the unanimous House passage of the Arthritis Act in late September. We WILL see this through!
