      The public option returns?

      Call today!

       

      Keep fighting!

      Over 80 Democrats in the House are standing up for the public option, but your Representative, Rep. Capps. isn't one of them. Call Rep. Capps today and tell her to sign onto the Polis/Pingree letter.

      Dear Janet,

      The momentum for health care reform came to a grinding halt after Scott Brown, a Republican, won a special election to replace Ted Kennedy in the Senate. Last week, that began to change.

      Two freshmen Democrats in the House, Jared Polis of Colorado and Chellie Pingree of Maine, wrote a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urging him to pass the public option via reconciliation, which would require only 51 votes to pass in the Senate.

      They asked us to help generate support for their letter, and thanks to thousands of members of CREDO Action, Democracy for America, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and MoveOn, 80 Democrats have now signed on to the letter. But your Representative, Rep. Capps, is not one of them.

      Tonight at 6pm Eastern, Rep. Polis will be on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" to talk about the amazing surge of support for the public option. He'll also announce the latest number of letter signers.

      Help us get from 80 to 100 signers today by calling and asking your Representative to sign the Polis/Pingree letter in support of the public option.

      Click here for the phone number and a sample script.

      The Polis/Pingree letter is an important tool in changing the narrative about health care reform. With Scott Brown giving the Republicans 41 votes in the Senate, the Democratic caucus cannot override a filibuster on its own. If Democrats in the Senate use the reconciliation process, they can pass a public option with only 51 votes. Furthermore, 51 members of the Senate Democratic caucus have indicated they support a public option.

      Over 80 Democrats in the House have taken the lead in fighting for health care reform by signing onto the Polis/Pingree letter. Urge Rep. Capps to join them.

      Take one minute to call Rep. Capps and urge her to sign the Polis/Pingree letter today. Click here for the number to call and a sample script to use.

      Thank you for continuing to fight for health care reform.
