Our military families make tremendous sacrifices on a daily basis and asking them to now pay nearly double for their prescription medications is simply unthinkable. While the majority has zeroed out the cost of mail order drugs, this fails to take into consideration those families who need their medications immediately. A family with a sick child cannot wait 4 to 5 days for their medications to arrive via mail, and they should not have to pay more for going to their local pharmacist.

In a time of war, making our veterans and their families pay more for the stability of a trusted local pharmacist is simply not a morally responsible plan.
