Alarming news: the public option could be dead within days, and we need Harry Reid to act fast to save it.
A few conservative Democrats, including Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman, are threatening to block health care reform -- all of it -- if the rest of the Democratic Caucus doesn't agree to drop or weaken the public option.
But it doesn't have to be this way. Senate Majority Leader Reid can still stop this, if he continues to fight. Reid has shown that he's willing to be a leader in fighting for the public option, and now we need him more than ever.
Can you sign the emergency petition to Harry Reid today?
