Foreshadowing a House-Senate showdown, Speaker Nancy Pelosi
said Thursday there is "no way" the House can pass a health care
bill without a government-run insurance option.

Speaking at a news conference in San Francisco, Pelosi told reporters
that a public option will "keep insurance companies honest."

LOL. I guess she thinks the House can pass it all by themselves? I don't think Harry Reid's polling numbers are too great, so he's not going to push this too far. Nancy needs to find somewhere to sit down and shut up.

She's right. There are 64 house Democrats that actually have a pair and have promised to vote against any bill without a strong public option. If 64 Congressional Democrats vote no, the bill won't have enough votes to pass. DemocracyForAmerica.com » Thank Our Healthcare Heroes (http://www.democracyforamerica.com/activities/181 - broken link)
If you see your Representatives name on this link, thank them. If not, write them and tell them to vote "no" on any bill without a strong public option.

If the public option doesn't make it, the health care reform bill will most likely mandate that everyone buy private insurance. This would be nothing more than a bailout for the health insurance industry. Last time I checked, they were doing quite well; they don't need a bailout.

77% want the option of a public health insurance plan. Maybe they don't want the plan, but they want the option. That's 77% of the American people. Same as the 76% from July who wanted it. Most don't want it forced, but they want the option. Option. Choice. The key words. I won't force it on you. Don't try to force me from having it. That's fair...
