To date, 60 progressive members of Congress have vowed to vote
against any health care reform bill that doesn't include a robust
public option. ActBlue has raised over $350,000, of a stated goal of
$450,000, to support them. To see the 60 who have stood up to Big
Insurance and Big Pharma, or to help, go here.
From their letter to Secretary Sebelius: "The opportunity to improve access to healthcare
is a onetime opportunity. Americans deserve reform that is real - not
smoke and mirrors. We cannot rely solely on the insurance companies'
good faith efforts to provide for our constituents. A robust public
option is essential."
