Here’s a man willing to display some courage and actually advocate for what the American people want.
Although we strongly support the important reforms made by the Senate-passed health reform package, including a strong public option would improve both its substance and the public?s perception of it,” Bennet wrote to Reid in a letter cosigned by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).
“The Senate has an obligation to reform our unworkable health insurance market — both to reduce costs and to give consumers more choices,” the senators added. “A strong public option is the best way to deliver on both of these goals, and we urge its consideration under reconciliation rules.”
So while I’m busy laughing at the absurdity of John Boehner (the public televised debate we’ve agitated for is a trap!), Sherrod Brown is out there working to get a better bill. Thanks for looking out for your constituents, Senator.
