Is the Public Option Back?

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 2:14 PM

MoveOn.org says that she is...

John Cole at Balloon Juice says that she's not...

At some point, people are going to accept that there were never 51 and most certainly were never 60 votes for the public option. I can say this quite confidently, because had there been that level of support for it, it would have passed! Just like the actual Senate HCR bill passed with 60 votes! Instead, it was repeatedly stripped from the bill and quietly killed. And not by Republicans. Now what people need to do is figure out why, if they are so sure the public option will pass, only 20 some Senators have signed on to it, and even some of them privately want it to go away. Here is a hint—a lot of Senators ARE LYING TO YOU.

And Daily Kos walks you through what you can do to help her out.
