Re: Breaking the hold
Lorna, 

No question that this is the key issue.  It sounds like ONC is committed but I suspect there will be a lot of lobbying in congress not to do it at all or to water it down significantly.  Honestly, I don't know what the odds are that it will happen but I'm hoping people who agree will get behind it.
