Are You with a Local Democratic Party? The Public Option Needs Your Help

public_option_credo_fdl_dfa.gifWe’ve got 65 members who have said they will not vote for any health care bill that does not have a public option.  There are over a hundred members of Congress who are in districts that have a 10 point Democratic advantage — it should be all of them.

How do we get there, and how do we make sure that the 65 who have signed know that they have the support of the people in their district for taking a hard line on the public plan?

By passing resolutions at the local level demanding that they do.

If you’re a member of a local DFA group, a Democratic club, a Drinking Liberally or any other local organization, we’d like to have you pass the resolution demanding the inclusion of a strong public option in any final health care bill.  You can find the language and sign on here.  And you can also sign on as an individual. 

We’ve got the momentum going.  Let’s  keep ratcheting it up.
