FDL Action: Public Option Whip Count – Day 33

We’ve added Chellie Pingree and Carolyn Maloney. We put up the statement from Pingree on Friday, and want to make sure everyone saw the statement from Maloney, as well:

I have always been a strong supporter of the public option (including co-sponsoring single-payer) and pledged to you several weeks ago to fight like heck to make sure a public option will be included in any health care reform bill. But, having watched the debate evolve over the last week or so, I want to make sure all of you know that I have decided I will not vote for a health care bill in the House that doesn’t include a real public option and I Pledge to uphold the public option principles agreed upon by the Progressive Caucus. I will continue to work with universal health advocates–and Caucus and Conference allies–to bring about true and practical universal health care legislation.

13 down; 27 to go. Whip it!
