Thanks to a few tenacious souls in Congress, the fight for true health care reform isn't over just yet. Today Rep. Lynn Woolsey of California, co-chair of the progressive caucus, introduces a bill offering consumers a "robust" public option along with the lousy options offered by profit-hungry private companies. She's got 121 co-sponsors. It isn't single payer, but it's a hopeful start.

"Congress must reassert our Constitutional authority by passing a strong War...
"Our movement is STRONG."
