Many of the most conservative Democratic senators hold coveted committee chairmanships that give them significant power within the Senate.
Our friends at Democracy for America have launched an open letter urging Senate Democrats to strip committee chairmanship from any Democrat who filibusters health care.
Knowing that blocking health care reform would mean they were no longer a committee chair will provide a powerful incentive to conservative Democrats to allow an up-or-down vote. Will you add your name to the open letter?
A compiled open letter with your individual comment will be presented to the Democratic Caucus.
Full petition text:
"If ANY member of the Democratic Caucus joins a Republican filibuster of healthcare reform with a public option, the Caucus must immediately strip that Senator of all Committee Chairmanships."
