Now the Progressive Caucus is the only game in town.

The intransigence of the Republicans have increased the power of the Progressive Caucus.


Baucus's bill has added not a single vote and in so doing the Republicans have increased the power of the Progressive Caucus.


The Progressive Caucus - joined by the Black Caucus, the Hispanic Caucus and the Asian Caucus has announced that they will not back a bill without the Public Option.


If the Progressive Caucus stands firm we will either have a bill with the Public Option or no bill at all.


It is time for the Progressive Caucus to stand firm, Public Option, no trigger, no compromises or no bill.

1. I'm glad that the focus is on them now.
It's about time that they get some spotlight. I hope that they fight to keep it.

We could get a public option with very little problem. Will we?

6. Exactly! The Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party ...
Where Dr. Howard Dean has ALWAYS been, especially on
this issue. I love Obama but I've never been prouder
of Howard Dean than I have during this entire debate.
Makes me hope he still has a future in the larger
Democratic Party.
