Don't blame "The Democrats" for the fact that the Public Health Care Option is being held up in Congress. It's not "The Democrats" or President Obama that have threatened this vital legislation.
The Public Health Care option will pass easily if a group of roughly 12 Democrats agrees to support it. We need to focus our efforts on these 12 individual senators. They need to understand the overwhelming public support for this plan and how many lives literally depend on it passing.
Remember, the Public Health Care Option is NOT being held up by the "Democratic Party" or President Obama. It is a group of individual senators within the Democratic Party that have put this plan in jeopardy.
Don't blame "The Democrats". Understand WHO these specific individual senators are---and speak directly to them. They are the following:
(and a few others)
If the above senators get on board, we'll have a public option. If they don't, the public option is in trouble. And if it fails to pass, we'll be right where we are today---completely at the mercy of the insurance and drug companies. Which means your illness or injury could not only go untreated---you could also go bankrupt in the process.
The passage of a Public Health Care option---a REAL one, with some teeth in it---is entirely in the hands of the above dozen senators. We need to contact all of them and let them know that the future health and financial stability of our families is in their hands.
What are we waiting for? Call the Capitol Hill switchboard, TOLL FREE, at 1-877-851-6437 and remind these senators that 70% of the public supports a public health care option!
