Will Senate progressives sit silently by as the public option dies?


The situation in the Senate is grim. Harry Reid has capitulated to Joe Lieberman and announced a deal to remove anything resembling a public option from the health care bill.
Four Senators — Senators Russ Feingold (D-WI), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Roland Burris (D-IL), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) — have previously said they’d only support a bill with a strong public option.
I have just signed a petition calling on these four progressive Senators to stand up for what they believe in, not stand aside and stay silent as Joe Lieberman and Harry Reid kill the public option.
I hope you do too. Just click the link below.
