Health Care: Public Option is on the Table Again

Some of our Patriot-deaf Congressman & Senators are once again pushing for the public option!

From CNN --
The fight over health care reform burst back into public view Tuesday as four Democratic senators asked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to hold a vote on a government-run public insurance option.

Most observers have considered the public option -- an idea long favored by liberal Democrats -- to be a non-starter since it was dropped from a Senate reform bill passed in December. But Sens. Michael Bennet of Colorado, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, and Sherrod Brown of Ohio signed a letter urging Reid, D-Nevada, to hold a vote on the proposal under a rule known as a reconciliation, which would allow the measure to pass with only 51 votes -- a simple majority.

The letter was co-signed by 119 Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Liberal groups MoveOn.org, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Democracy for America, and Credo Action are pushing other Democratic senators to sign the letter as well. More...

  1. Hello, I'm looking for musicians to help record my conservative and Christian songs. I have 100's of political songs that I hope will make a difference especially before election time! Being unemployeed I have lots of time to write and have over 100 songs on everything from eminent domain, illegal immigration, border agent and soldier support, Fort Hood shooting, the economy, pork, spending, etc. I have a video up on youtube for a starter. It's a parody poem about Scott Brown and Obamacare, so it won't compare to my heart tugging songs, but it can give a very tiny sample of my writing. Hope you'll find it entertaining, and hope I can help your group get your message out through music, poetry or t-shirt designs. Thanks! God Bless you for what you do!
