Our campaign for the public option continues to gain momentum!

Members of DFA, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, CREDO Action and MoveOn have made over 20,000 phone calls to Senate Democrats and QUADRUPLED the number of senators who signed the letter calling on Harry Reid to pass the public option through "reconciliation."

Working together, we've added Dianne Feinstein (CA), Barbara Boxer (CA), Frank Lautenberg (NJ), Jack Reed (RI), Roland Burris (IL), Al Franken (MN), John Kerry (MA), Patrick Leahy (VT), Bernie Sanders (VT), Barbara Mikulski (MD), Tom Udall (NM), and Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) to the original four Healthcare Heroes.

That's going from Zero to 16 senators signed-on in just two days. Who's next? Well, it's up to you...

Call Senator Evan Bayh right now and demand he sign on -- this is his moment to be part of history.


Make the call.

And if you've called already, call again.

Democrats in Washington are finally starting to unite on a way forward for healthcare reform that includes passing a public option using reconciliation. Let's make sure Senator Byah stands up to lead the fight today.

Thank you for everything you do,


Charles Chamberlain, Political Director
Democracy for America
