You've probably heard about a possible "deal" in the Senate to do away with the public option.
This is no deal: it's a gift to Big Insurance, plain and simple.
The details are sketchy. The only thing that's really clear is the deal would drop the public option from the bill. With no public option, there's no guarantee of real competition. And without real competition, health care costs will continue to be out of control.
But the deal is far from done. If voters generate a massive outcry around this and progressive leaders in Congress fight back, we can fix it.
Can you sign a petition to leaders in Congress and the White House right away?
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to leaders in Congress and the White House.
Full petition text:
"You must make sure health care reform includes a real public option--it's what the majority of Americans want. Anything less is a gift to Big Insurance."
