I'm sure someone has already posted this somewhere...
but if you go to wewantmedicare.com you can sign a petition from Alan Grayson. This is what you would be attaching your name to:

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

If were going to vote on bills without a public option, we should also vote on the public option.

Our bill (HR 4789) lets anyone buy into Medicare.

We've had lots of debate. Now it's time to vote.

Regards,

Rep. Alan Grayson

3. It's good to keep posting it though, for those who haven't seen it. I'm always
tempted to KEEP signing it, :7, but I don't want to screw it up.

2. K&R -- and it appears to be stalled at 80 co-sponsors on the bill. If your congressperson
isn't on, contact him/her and keep it up!

8. I've been tempted, but it's good to know we can't do it. THAT little devil can
jump off my shoulder!

7. Of what value is an e-petition in the overall scheme of things? They
are easily faked, and the people to whom they are addressed are aware of this.
