Progressive Democrats (well…some of them) stand up for the public option

Posted in DC Reform, Health Reform Policy Proposals by raisingwomensvoices on July 10, 2009

Though it feel sometimes like health care reform is a lost cause, that all things are doom and gloom, it’s nice to hear some elected officials speak out in support of what their constituents want. This article from the Daily Kos talks about the leadership and membership of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. They have stated their support for the public health insurance option and their dismay at the Olympia Snowe (R-ME) proposed trigger option. These statements were in response to Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and the comments he’s made recently about the trigger option being a compromise the White House is considering.
