The Kind of News We Like

From Roll Call:

"An organizer for liberal House Democrats says the bloc “isn’t bluffing” as it prepares to take a reputation-defining stand to protect a public insurance option in the health care overhaul.

Darcy Burner, executive director of the American Progressive Caucus Policy Foundation, said the health care debate has rallied traditionally disparate Congressional liberals to hang together, while galvanizing support for their position from an array of left-leaning outside groups. The result, she said, is that Democratic leaders will not be able to clear a package through the House if it does not include the public plan."

This is what I like to hear. Dems claim to have been holding their fire for years now, saving it for something really important. Well, here it is. Time to take a stand: a public option or nothing. Just look at the polls and you can see where endless waffling is getting the Democratic party.
