114. Agreed! We have to now take it to the streets
when they try to pass something without a public option.
We have been reasonable. We wanted Universal Single Payer healthcare, then backed off, and made it Medicare for All, now we back off more, and make it a Public Option. They want us to back off more, and make it some co-op, or have a "trigger" for the public.
Call them on their bovine fecal matter. The lawmakers work for WE THE PEOPLE, not them, the corporations. Stand up, and let them know that they will see the door come 2010, if there is no public option. Tell Obama that he will face a primary in 2012, and if that fails, a strong third party candidate.
Not this time.
No surrender, no defeat. We have to win this one.
They are going to say that it costs too much. What about the corporate welfare that they are giving to the banks and such? What about the money they are throwing away on two wars? Rein in some of that spending, and there will be MORE THAN ENOUGH to pay for healthcare.

No more corporate welfare. Don't let the congress critters weasel out of this one. Hold their feet to the fire, and DEMAND that they vote for a strong public option, and we can build up to Universal health care from there.

It's time for us to take it to them and shove it right up their keisters if they don't vote for WE THE PEOPLE.
