    Save it, Senator Nelson.  We are actually paying attention.  Real health care reform which includes a strong, viable, well-funded, and widely available public option is the right thing to do:
    -morally
    -economically (long term cost savings)
    -politically

    The classic trick of painting progressives as immature, purists, unable to reconcile political realities with liberal wish lists---that aint gonna work here, because POTUS successfully sold real health care reform, and most of the country wants this.  Those standing against the clear mandate for a strong public option are the ones with the fringe beliefs, not us.  Those who want to weaken or destroy this cost-saving component of HCR are the spendthrifts, not us.

    Excellent diary!!

    I hope that his constituents remind Senator Nelson that he's there to legislate utilizing common sense and should not be standing against real HCR.

    I am not the first President to take up this cause, but I am determined to be the last.-President Obama
