Strike Back! We Want The Public Option!
Tell your Senator to support the public option now, because everyone deserves health care.
Why is this important?
When I partnered with MoveOn, Bernie Sanders, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, and other progressive allies on a new Senate resolution calling for a public health insurance option, national headlines in Forbes, The Huffington Post, and elsewhere made it clear: the public option is back on the table.
And when the resolution ballooned to 33 Senate cosponsors in less than 48 hours, the insurance lobby told their allies to attack us—and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor right away to do it.
With the public option, progressives are going on the offense. We are changing the 2016 election debate and we're inspiring voters.
We can't back down. We must keep playing offense. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and President Obama endorse a public option. Now, with Senate allies and partner organizations, we're pushing the entire Democratic Party to make this a central 2016 issue.
