Obama Promised


Using his own words against him, the Progressive Change Campaign
Committee is airing an ad in which Obama gives a campaign speech
insisting on a public option
he has now abandoned. The group hopes to pressure Sen. Russ Feingold of
Wisconsin to drop his support of the bill unless the option is added.

"President Obama should frankly feel ashamed that he promised
Americans a public option, got people to believe real change was
possible, and then never truly fought for it - instead, pushing a
mandate that he specifically campaigned against," said Adam Green of Progressive Change Campaign Committee.




Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
