Healthcare Heroes

Goal ThermometerDemocracyForAmerica.com has a list of “healthcare heroes”: Congresspersons who are standing up for the public option.

There are three members of Florida delegation listed there:

Corrine Brown (FL-03)
Robert Wexler (FL-19)
Alcee Hastings (FL-23)

Notably absent are Kendrick Meek (FL-17), who is running for Senator and you would think might want to get out in front on this but who is running to the right almost as fast as Charlie Crist, and progressive folk like Alan Grayson (Fl-8), Ron Kein (FL-22) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (FL-20).

Well, maybe Wasserman-Schultz isn't such a surprise. But Alan Grayson definitely is.

It is a sad thing that contributions often speak louder than polls. If you want to contribute to show these healthcare stalwarts that you appreciate their backbone, click on the thermometer on the right.

    Great. Having grown up in a Canadian border state, I can say we will all be completely up a creek without a paddle when we socialize healthcare here. Any Canadian with money came to my area for health care because otherwise they had to wait until they were long dead to get it in Ontario.

    This is a classic example of the humanitarian with a guillotine (you should probably google it since I am sure you have never read Isabel Paterson).
