More, after the fold
These appear to be the ones left that Pelsoi needs to get a robust public option passed in the House.
As Chris says, the following undecideds are a waste of time:
Don't bother with Boyd, Berry, Ellsworth, Hill, Gordon or Tanner
But these can make a difference. Remember, a robust public option in the House increases our chances greatly of getting a good public option when the House and Senate bills go to conference.
She is currently conducting what's known as a public whip--huddling with her rank and file and asking everybody, including fence sitters, where they stand on the robust public option. That means we should have answers soon.
Late update: The meeting ended a few minutes ago--though the push is continuing. We'll update you as details trickle out.
We can make a difference now.
Update I: When you call, tell the Congressperson (or their staff) that you support "the robust public option that's tied to Medicare plus 5% rates." That's the one Pelosi is trying to pass.
