Public Option for Health Care On the Move

Photo Above: Hundreds of people gathered to support national health care that includes a public option outside before Congressman Larson's hearing on health care in West Hartford, Connecticut. [Click on the photo for full screen]

The message was clear. Put people before profits and pass a national public option for health care. The supporters for the public option far outnumbered the opposition. There are about 46 million Americans without health insurance and millions more are one lay-off slip away from losing their health care.

Congressman Larson and Senator Dodd are two leaders in the fight for a public option. The entire Connecticut delegation with the exception of Senator Lieberman is in support of a public option.

Call your Congressional representative and Senator Dodd and thank them for leading the fight for the public option. Call Senator Lieberman and demand that he support a public option now!
