PCCC, Senate Democrats Push for Public Option with New Congressional Resolution and Nationwide Grassroots Coalition Campaign

Progressive Change Campaign Committee

WASHINGTON - Today, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee is partnering with Senate Democrats to introduce and rally around a Senate resolution calling for every American to have the choice of a public health insurance option. A broad progressive coalition will engage millions of Americans this week in support.

This Merkley-Schumer-Murray-Durbin-Sanders resolution is led in the Senate by Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and 22 other original co-sponsors (full list below).

Do not fail to notice: not a single Rethuglican has signed the resolution. Also note that this is merely a resolution-w/o the force of law. I am so sick and tired of we Americans being the only poor jerks that do not have a national healthcare system. We, who think we are so wonderfully "exceptional" are 2nd rate when it comes to healthcare. I called my "gyn"'s office for an appointment yesterday and the FIRST QUESTION out of the mouth of the girl
who answered the call was "what insurance do you have"? If that's not APPalling, what is?
